Giro to D.C.: “See you in 2012”

A proposed 2012 Giro d'Italia prologue in Washington D.C. would pass by many of the city's landmarks, including several with symbolic meaning to Italy. Besides showcasing the city and bringing in millions of dollars in economic impact, the build-up would help Mayor Adrian Fenty — an avid cyclist — promote health, wellness and the benefits of bicycle riding.
