Met Italy's Midnight Ridazz!!
Thread started by ephemerae at 10.8.08 - 12:01 pm

So yeah, I met up with Marco Marzocchi and Fabio Carlini and an American friend of theirs (whose name I unfortunately did not write down) in the Ridazz Italy base city of Ferrara - which is a totally awesome city if you love bikes, cos EVERYONE is riding one - grandmas, little kids, bidnessmen, seriously everyone.

We chatted about the challenges they face trying to get social rides going in a place where everybody is already riding anyway - it's more difficult than you would think! It's roughly equivalent to asking people in Los Angeles to go drive on freeways in packs. And a bunch of other stuff. And we exchanged gifts, they gave me a buncha awesome spoke cards from their rides, a Campagnolo cap and a sweet Italia jersey. I gave them gifts from our peeps, Ridazz shirts and patches, and Wolfpack patches and other stuff. Also Rich donated his Ridazz ALC jersey! They knew all about our rides and activities and were really enthused about this. We exchanged ideas on promoting biking as a social activity and many other ideas.

These dudes ride fixed on cobblestone streets!

Good times were had. Marco and Fabio took me and nanosquid to a restaurant where one of their close friends is the chef, and totally blew our minds with awesome food (as is de rigeur in Italy).

At the time an international buskers festival was happening in Ferrara so there was lots of partying to be had all over the place.

We also did a ride around the city - get this - on top of a the sixteen century fortress-style city wall which goes all the way around the city. That was awesome.

More photos and descriptions are forthcoming but here's one of me and the guys at one of the parties in an old palazzo.

Friend these guys on Facebook! They are our people! Marco and Fabio!

I thought I saw something by Borfocelli hanging in a museum in Florence, some girl standing in a big shell (hot!) with some dudes with wings playing trumpets. And there was like a Bananarama soundtrack. Wacky Italians.

OK, enough farting around, I gotta sort the bloody photos.

WTF? There's an Italian Ridazz? I didn't know.

I'm heading out to Milan on Thursday and my gf lives in Modena. We sometimes ride rental bikes around Modena, Reggio nell'Emilia and Parma, which is pretty close to Ferrara, Italy while it's still in the Emilia-Romagana portion of Italy.

ahhhh... ciao Italian ridazz, If you are in the Modena or Reggio nell'Emilia areas, hit me up this weekend. Maybe my gf and I will ride or something.

I'm hoping they're okay from the earthquake too. They were far from the epicenter, but the quake was felt as far as Bologna from what I've read in la repubblica.
