Vittorio Bicycles & A Bike Touring Fair

Last weekend, we travelled north of Amsterdam to visit steel touring bike maker Vittorio Bicycles and their annual bike touring fair.

Here’s a short video with the highlights of the day, including a look at the new Marathon Mondial touring tires, the favourite things that bike tourists Saskia & Jan-Willem take on tour and an amazing bike built for an expedition over a frozen river in Russia!

*Sorry for the video quality. It isn’t great because we were testing the video function on a new camera. As we learned, it doesn’t focus very well!

    Thanks for sharing. I have been using the Mondial for the past few weeks of muddy and occasionally icy riding, they are very comfortable and predictable. The bikes look great…. Have you seen these videos:
    of the Iditarod trail on bike…..

    Have a great Christmas

    I just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you for the great video. I wonder what that biker hit in the middle of nowhere to get a flat tyre?
    I hope you have a great Christmas.

    With Thanks

    Thanks for sharing the video. Very interesting and it would be great if they had a purely touring bike show over here in the UK.
