Pashley at L’Eroica

David and Bryce completed the L’Eroica retro cycling event on 3-speed Pashley Guv’nors. The bikes were completely stock except for minor changes for fit and pedal preference.

L’Eroica is an event to celebrate the true heroes of cycling. Set in the Tuscan countryside, largely on the famous white gravel roads, the race takes you back to the early days of cycling. Each rider can choose from four course lengths, 38, 75, 135, or 205km. For the latter two you can start any time after 5:00 am and you receive a special award (a bottle of Chianti) if you manage to finish by 7:30 pm. It’s a gruelling test of physical and mental strength but with a strong sense of camaraderie and teamwork to get you through to the end.

    The Guv’nor is one of the few recent bikes that just makes me stop and look it over every time I see a photo of it on the web. Not sure if it’s the handlebars, the white tires, or what, but it has the same kind of sexy allure as a fine WWII pinup girl.
