Well here I am in the wonderful Italian Lakes, beautiful sunshine and a very warm 30 degrees, the photo above is of Sulzano port one of the prettiest villages around the lake. We decided to cycle round it, with it been a mere 46 miles, it is mainly flat so not too hard she says !!! and with plenty of stopping off points for coffee, soft drinks and panni's. Sulzano is one of my favourite places and cycling in to the old village also called bay of flowers the smell of roses was intoxicating. Next came the old road from Marone to Lovere and with no cars it was much safer, until I was gazing into the lake watching a Grebe suddenly a chap coming the other way on a racing bike nearly collided with me It was my fault for not looking, it could have been very nasty!!! One of the joys of always looking at scenery!
