Op 22 April 2018 we as team “No Proof, No Glory” (Boukje, Lisette, Bianca, Edwin and myself) participated in the Gran Fondo Rosa from Oosterbeek. During the Gran Fondo Rosa the idea is to celebrate Italian cycling and the Tour of Italy! The passion for cycling is nowhere greater than in Italy. All participants in the GF Rosa will receive a Maglia Rosa cycling shirt!
As a team we had our own table and with the incredible good weather for April this ride was a little party on its owns. Before the start we meet up with some other friends (Albert and Manon) and as they started for the longer version team NPNG did the shortest distance. The atmosphere was amazing and seeing almost everybody in the same jersey made it really special.
During the ride we lost Edwin somewhere on the last Posbank climb only to see him back at the finish line, I think we did the last climb three times or something to search us or he just wanted some extra altitude meters.
Hope to see you all next year!
