Good news for Lawrence! He has already had some great early success with couchsurfing. Even though it is about a month and a half – two months away, Lawrence has been sending out preliminary requests for a place to crash between stages. Thus far he has had some great responses and excitement in some of the most critical stages of the tour – the ones in Italy. Tentative hosts are located in:
Venice: May 8th – 10th w/ Bacaro
Trieste: May 10th – 11th w/ EAZbike
Valdobbiadene: May 11th – 12th w/ Quadrophenia (with a backup in Padova)
Bressanone: May 13th – 14th w/ Rasa
Innsbruck: May 14th – 15th w/ Ausara
We just need to keep sending out more requests and getting more people enthusiastic to help! Couchsurfing rocks!
