A first hand report on what it’s like cycling Italy, well at least in Tuscany, plus can my raspy voice hang on for a preview of my upcoming Halloween weekend ride on the C+O and connections with Friends of the Show from all over the world? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Have some bike touring or overnight stories to share? Send your pics, audio or a quick tweet – all welcome. Email the show at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the lightly-used Pedalshift voicemail line at (202) 930-1109.

DC-Harpers Ferry Halloween Spooktacular
- Riding out for the Halloween weekend
- Less about miles and more about enjoying the ride and bike camping for the first time in months

- I’m planning on recording the trip and sharing pieces on the next show
- Trying out Amtrak’s rollaboard service Sunday to max out my biling time out… The bike cost more than me!
