This was my first Sella Ronda bike day, which was instead at its 15th edition. From 8.30 in the morning until 3.30 pm the circuit was barred to traffic, only cyclists could go through and enjoy the Sella circuit without suffering the smelly exhaust gases and the constant sound of car engines. I love bicycle days!
About 3 weeks ago the new “Ciclovia del Sole” it has been opened between Osteria Nuova and Mirandola on the Bologna – Verona line. A perfect opportunity to go out and try the new connection which, with some detours, allowed us to take a 3-day tour on cycle paths for 80% of the Bologna-Bologna trip.
A weekend to remember, while in Milan it was running Milanese Randonee for 120km on the average route, which I would have thought it was too much for myself. I learned once again how having a comfortable bike (like mine!), saving little energies on the way and looking beyond the horizon may be worth more than the strength you think you have or the training you have achieved.
This post unlike the rest of the web-site I thought it should have remained in Italian, as it came out. This is more than a story, it is a declaration of love to my bicycle “Summer”, but also to all the bicycles in the world that have a spacial place into their owners heart and memory.
