Locanda Monte Grappa


On Wednesday, July 5th, you are welcome to join Bill and Anna Speckman, Pat Ennis and April Pedersen Santinon in a memorial celebration for George Pohl, former owner of the Italian Cycling Center and cycling mentor to many. 

The day will begin with one of George's favorite rides, the Lake Ride. We will head north along the Brenta River and climb the famous Scala di Primolano, then proceed to Arsie and along Lago di Carlo to the Bar da Anna for lunch. After lunch we'll place a memorial plaque made by April at George's favorite overlook by the lake.


Upon our return to Borso del Grappa, we'll stop by the cemetery to pay our respects to George. At 6:00pm (Italian time) we'll begin a zoom video call from the taverna of the Locanda Montegrappa to reunite with the staff and other friends of George, to share photos and "George-isms" until the time of reading the menu in his inimitable style.


The celebration will conclude with dinner and a toast to George and his legacy. We hope you'll be able to join us, wherever you are, in this tribute to a dear friend.
