Not sure if veloboy's link supercedes this one (probably):

I recently received a new flyer about 6+6 Isole, the text is only in Italian, if anybody wants a copy of it please PM me (I haven't understood how to attach it to this post, sorry).

I've uploaded a copy of the 6+6 pdf flyer here:

Lids?

(I have a vague memory that Audax Italia has created such a rule; inventive bunch, the Italians )

Yes, I’m in, been in my radar for a while.

I’ve just got back from a short trip to Sicily, non-cycling, but have ridden the north side of Etna and around Taormina before, prior to watching the 2017 Giro. Cycling there is a joy but the roads can be poor, and busy on the coast. Never been to Sardinia though.

Training starts tomorrow on the UT.

Sounds amazing  :thumbsup: - but too tough for me currently.No slower option of ARI time... Also the travel logistics with the bike boxes sound a bit challenging as well?

Only 6 places left so be quick if you're going for it.

Flights booked!! Pretty limited options from the London Area - Traveling with bike box means I will only go for non-stop flights, even if I have to get up to Stansted for a 06:35 departure!!

London Stansted to Cagliari (Sardinia)
EZY3203   flight   
Departs:   Tue 23 Apr 06:35
Arrives:   Tue 23 Apr 10:15

Palermo (Sicily) to London Gatwick (North Terminal)
EZY8244   flight   
Departs:   Tue 30 Apr 10:15
Arrives:   Tue 30 Apr 12:20

Currently, £56 outbound and £17 inbound. Bike cost £90 return. 23Kg checked bag is £44 return.
The bike and checked bag now costs more than the seat!!
