A Vintage Cycle Rally + Chianti Mud

Every October the period cycle race, 'Eroica', is held in Tuscany, covering over 200 kilometers of "strade bianche" or unpaved roads, roughly between Siena and Gaiole in Chianti. Anyone with a valid racing license may participate, but you need to register by mid September. Vintage costumes are encouraged, but keep in mind: rain makes mud.
