NOTE TO DARIO
Dario, I rode the Marcelo on a century last Sunday and thought of you. In July, I'll be riding it 550 miles in 6 days to raise money for cancer research and treatment. Your name will be on the red badge I wear every mile of the way. I hope you heal quickly. More people need to be riding your beautiful bikes. If anyone wants to donate to the ride, the Pennsylvania Perimeter Ride Against Cancer, here's a link: http://www.davejoachim.com/pprac. And one last link to the song, Pegoretti. http://www.taverntan.com/music.html Thanks again for writing to say that you like it. Maybe hearing it again will remind you of how strong your spirit is. Get well soon.

Dario, where ever I go with my Pegoretti's, people stop me and rave over them. Everyone I talk to about you tells me to send you their good wishes for your speedy and full recovery. I am a Velo Bella...and all the Velo Bellas send you our special "BELLA BEAMS"!!!! Think about a Tinker Bell paint scheme for my Fina Estampa...Matt and Tom say Hi!!!! I'm jealous that Matt has a responsorium!!!!! All my good thoughts and wishes go to you!!! I still have to meet you in person!!!! Robyn

A fun bike for fun trails! I hope one day to own a Pegoretti, but until then I will continue to enjoy the more plain bikes I have, and I will try my best to send some of the wonderful energy from Western Colorado all the way to Italy to promote your return to wellness. If you ever want to ride a mountain bike in a beautiful place, Western Colorado is that place. Get well soon!
