In a small fishing village attached to the lesser visited Italian Cilento Coast we took off to ride a stage of the 2013 Giro D'Italia.
We had missed the Giro but trace evidence still lingered on the roads and in towns of the small villages the stage had sweep through.
The spectators were gone. The parade of team buses, cars, media and sponsors, gone. Quiet freshly paved roads, abandoned barriers teetering into ditches and trampled grass where the fans had stood for hours waiting for riders to speed past were some of the evidence that lingered. Months of preparation and anticipation vanishing within a few breaths.
We passed under banners and pennants strung across the streets. Our wheels rolling over the fading names of riders drawn with chalk on the roads.
Even though it wasn't a storied mountain stage or a well-known stretch of landscape it still held the energy of the Giro.
In all its abandonment the spirit of the Giro clung to this stretch of road as it had weaved in and out of small seaside and hilltop villages.
We were energized and forever drawn to this great cycling event.
The Giro D'Italia Pin is here to celebrate 100 years.

Men's Bib Shorts
Women's Bib Shorts
The most important measurements are Chest, Waist and Hip. Use these measurements (the circumference) to determine your size. Use Height and Inseam as additional measurements for reference.
Measure the circumference of your palm at the widest point. If your measurement is between sizes then we would suggest going with the larger size.
Thermal Jerseys, Vests and Arm Warmers
We measure the dimensions of these garments laying flat and give you these measurements in centimetres.
The two most important measurements would be chest for tops and hips for bottoms.
One way to know if the sizing will work for you is to compare our measurements to an article of clothing you already own.
Another option would be to measure your chest (from just under the armpits) or hip (level with pelvis) circumference then divide that number in half. Compare that number to our sizing charts.
We'd be happy to answer any questions you have on sizing.
