L’Eroica was first run in 1997 as a protest of sorts against the inexorable tide of progress, represented in this case by the paving of Chianti’s innumerable dirt roads. Dirt is a relative term for the road surfaces here – some are in pristine, hard-packed, almost pavement-like condition; while others are rough, strewn with large rocks, prone to tire sucking sands, and are altogether violent, unforgiving stretches of “road.” So, strade bianche seems more accurate – white roads. With so many different possibilities on each stretch of road, the only thing they all have in common is their sun-blasted whiteness. #StravaStories #LEROICA words and images by @jeredgruber and @ashleygruber.

David has worked on the road.cc tech team since July 2012. Previously he was editor of Bikemagic.com and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
