Tim Moore Æ 2 Summary

Gironimo

F 400 kilometre stages cataclysmic night storms and relentless sabotage all on a diet of raw eggs and red wine Of the 81 who rolled out of Milan only eight made it back Committed to total authenticity Tim acuires the ruined husk of a gearless wooden wheeled 1914 road bike some maps and an alarming period outfit topped o. The Giro It is Italy s own grand tour and takes place at the end of May and has been held since 1909The 1914 Giro was one of the toughest that ever took place with only eight yes eight finishers at the end of the Tour from a start number of 81 Some of the stages were in excess of 400km long and the competitors would start at midnight and ride for around 24 hoursAnd it is was this infamous tour that Moore decides to replicate He has also chosen to ride it on a bike that is 100 years old with wooden rims and cork brakes and some genuine woollen garment None of your lycra in those days He builds the bike a Hirondelle himself with a lot of help from able assistants and other mechanically adept people and following a scant amount of training boards the plane to Milan Moore tries where possible to follow the original route but as there was no map kept and roads have changed then it is not always as easy to do The lack of training is immediately apparent as well as the the very sharp learning curve that is the Italian traffic system He writes about his experience in hotels and guest house from the truly superb to the frankly appalling He easts an awful lot of pizza and tries his best to reduce the Italian red wine lakeMoore writes in an easily accessible style he is witty and on occasions very very funny He has a keen eye and there is plenty of detail of the people and place that he travels through on his own tour It is not uotes as good as French Revolutions his book on the Tour de France but I really enjoyed it
