The increasingly popular L’Eroica series of vintage bike events is expanding with three new rides in 2016, taking the show to Uruguay, South Africa, and the Netherlands for a total of eight rides this year.

Twenty years ago, the original Italian ride took place in Gaole in Chianti. Organizers have gradually grown the calendar to include stops around the world.
