Group Bike Tour

On Sunday  June 14th, 2015 the group went on a bicycle tour of nearby Alsace, France. We enjoyed cycling the beautiful countryside, a hearty lunch, various stops for repairs, a short Frisbee break, and — to top it off — an generous wine sampling. Thanks to Ben Herzog, Marcus Wyss, and Andrea Mehlin for organizing a great outing. From left to right are: Andrea Mehlin, Marcus Wyss, Denis Vasyukov, Boris Gross, Martino Poggio, Ben Herzog, and Nicola Rossi. Taking the photo is group alumnus, Michele Montinaro.
