Great mirror shot and lots of very nice bikes, but what the reason for that bar tape colour on the Bianchis?

Bar tape matched the shoes and Jordan is a bit over 5'

I rode a loop around Tende: col de Tende from the North (paved side) , then dirt road called Alta via del sale to the South-East, into Ligurian alps, then over the hill to la Brigue, Tende, up to Peyrefique, and dirt road to Tende. Beautiful old gravel roads, great views.
I was on a rigid bike with 451 wheels, and felt underequipped in several places and had to walk. Take an MTB. Avoid the following roads on a rigid bike: from San Bernardo Mendatica to colle Garezzo and then Collardente, and from Tende to Baisse d'Ourne (instead, ride from St Dalmas de Tende to Casterino and up to Peyrefique).

ps: due to impending rain I had to cut short the last bit and didn't get to ride the dirt road to col de Tende from the South. Oh well.

Did a local mtb trail / hiking aero called Fremont older today. I think I want a hardtail now. Also you need two zip ties for the stem mounted wahoo mount to work.ImageImage

That's right. I was on vacations there in Puerto de la Cruz, and was able to take the bike.
