Check out Part 1 if you missed it!
Our first day of riding was amazing!! We must have biked about 45 miles, and we loved it!! The Italians know how to enjoy life. They really do. And really, who wouldn’t with this scenery?
Our instructions attached to our bikes were really cryptic like: Make a left at the old Roman bridge like this one:
At first, it was really annoying because I always like to know where I am and where I’m going. But then, it hit me.
I’m on vacation. Who cares if I get lost? I’m with my love, and life is an adventure isn’t it?
Yes, that is the ocean.
We got lost A LOT the entire trip!! At least we were together!
The support vehicle was great. If we got flats, the guys were there to change them for us. They made us stop every few hours for a snack because they said we needed to replenish calories. You didn’t have to stop, but they were like caring brothers who didn’t want your blood sugar to get low. They even bought some gluten free biscotti just for me! And, they refilled our water bottles with cold water and a fresh lemon wedge every time we stopped. Lovely….
Time for lunch complete with artichokes, mozzarella, tomatoes, tuna pasta, olives, anchovies, prosciutto, strawberries, and of course, a butt load of wine and olive oil. Even though everything was soaked in olive oil, nothing felt heavy. It was so fresh, healthy, just perfect.
