Erich and Juna3 at Bikecafe in Pinerolo

News has arrived from Pinerolo! And we have also managed to get in touch with the riders in China and Belgium, giving us the boost we needed to carry on with the JunaProject.

Juna3 was invited to spend a day with the bikes from the Bikecafe, one of the biggest bicycle shops in Pinerolo.
Our wonderful folding bike took great pleasure in riding up and down, posing for photos and being photographed with other extraordinary bikes.

 


As always we would like to thank the protagonists of this trip... first off Erich, for his incredible commitment... and Gianluca Caruso, Bikecafe's mechanic, who was kind enough to host Juna3.

We have therefore completed another mission:

Mission #89 - Visit a bicycle factory or shop and take a tour by bike with the manager!

Grazie ragazzi!

New Video and New Mission from Shanghai

Time passes, and unfortunately we receive very little news. In any case we have not thrown in the towel and we are committed to promoting the use of bicycles and completing this difficult project.

Our rider from China, Fujinyi, raises our spirits, putting his heart and soul into pursuing the JunaProject. He has embarked on a couple of missions and is trying to find a successor.

Fujinyi has opted to complete the following mission:
Mission # 5 - Carry the bike up at least 10 floors of a building and then go down by elevator.

Here's the video of his challenge:

Thank you so much for all your effort!

Juna3 reaches la bella Italia

Juna3, our Bianchi bicycle that can be divided into two parts, returns to Italy.

Two years ago, we bought it from a farmer in Varese (Italy). It was in good condition and it was the perfect bike for embarking on a great adventure.
And so it did. Juna3 wandered for months going from one European country to another, before finally reaching the town of Pinerolo in Piedmont (Italy).

Thanks to Sara and Pepita Bikes we were able to use their delivery service and pass it on to Erich, our new Italian rider!  

Erich is passionate about cycling and member of the "Tana del Lupo" (Wolf's Lair), a crazy community that works to promote all kinds of activities linked to the bikes... the "Chronograziella" event is our favourite one, it is an extreme downhill race with vintage folding bikes! 

We would also like to thank La Base Palestre, who welcomed Juna3 with open arms! 

 

We have every confidence in Erich and we believe that he can give us a huge hand in continuing JunaProject! 

Thank you and have fun!
