Luigi & Giuseppe

We rarely see Luigi & Giuseppe on Muggs' Sunday rides.  Our two Mediterranean phantom cycling cousins jointly own a Western suburbs paint shop; Sunday is their largest trading day.

Luigi & Giuseppe crave to paint insignia on Sydney's toughest climbs the same way famous climbs in the Tour de France are immortalised in colourful paint eg Alp d' Huez, Col d'Izoard and Col du Lautaret.  Our two Old World cycling aficionados seemingly have a good rapport with local nocturnal Elves on Sydney's Northside, because, from time to time, the little Goblins manage to tidy-up Muggaccinos colourful road signs.  Above and below are two versions of Muggs' sign in Rohini St, Turramurra station carpark after the local Pixies have used Luigi & Giuseppe 'paint' to touch-up our Sicilian brothers' road signs.

Left hand pic is a panorama of the famous 21 switch-backs  (cross-overs) to the summit of Alpe d'Huez with Yellow outline - 13.8 km in length average gradient 7.9%. 

Luigi remonstrates that there are hundreds of larger signs painted on the 22 sections of the most famous ascent.
