Saturday saw a large collection of cyclists from a variety of teams, clubs, and backgrounds gather to celebrate the re-opening of the Ciociaro cycling track.

Close to 100 riders turned out in a slow drizzle to witness the track barriers be removed, take a group photo, do a long anticipated parade lap, and finally, head into the county for a social ride. Strong winds and a large group made staying organized difficult and a welcomed stop halfway at Shooters gave the group the option to split up. Upon return to the Ciociaro everyone assembled in the members lounge for drinks and wood-fired pizza, something that will surely become a regular ritual in the upcoming season.

Congratulations and thanks go out to a small group that have worked diligently on behalf all local cyclists to see the track re-opened to the public and also form a new cycling club.
