Welcome to BiciVeneto Journal.
Back in 2000 I was inspired to create BiciVeneto, a synthesis of over 40 years of knowledge and experience living and cycling in the Veneto region of northeast Italy. The site has continued to grow as new ideas come to mind, and I believe I’ve succeeded in my original concept of recreating my Italian cycling life on the web, with the objective of sharing it with others as entertainment, as a stimulus to visit this enchanting region, and of course, as a resource for those who come. You’d think that, given the size and scope of BiciVeneto and the amount of work that has gone into it, I’d be satisfied. But no! I’m still overflowing with things I need to “put to paper”: experiences, anecdotes, tidbits, news items, observations, reflections, curiosities, photos, and more. I say need, because yes, this journal is as much the result of compulsive self-expression as it is a desire to share knowledge and information. My hope is that readers will gain further insight into the culture, traditions, character, and landscapes of this magical and lesser-known corner of Italy.
