Riding with Tom in Gö – September 27/28 2021 Gravel Rides

Gö Strade Bianche mit Tom – September 28 2021

My new bike

Tom on a visit to Göttingen from the Netherlands has recently been riding in Tuscany and he wanted to ride the Gö Strade Bianche.

This we did beginning with a westside loop, riding along the Leine Valley, into Thuringia and across the now defunct Iron Curtain before returning along the hillier east side of the valley.

Tom is a Fausto Coppi fan and wears the shirt to prove it – his bottles and bar tape are celeste coloured, but his Bianchi bike is not.

He said that the gravel did remind him of Tuscany.

Flat Earther in the Gö Hills – September 27 2021

Tom lives in the pan flat part of the Netherlands and to get his fix of climbing he rides iconic Italian climbs, and visits Göttingen.

We rode to the Plesse Castle and then dropped down into the Leine Valley.
