Looking South to Monte Cavo in the Castelli Romani area
I have not been posting lately due to a huge amount of work in the office... but I have been riding - just not letting you guys know about it!
Yesterday was a horrible day here in Rome, with absolutely awful thunderstorms that wreaked havoc with traffic throughout the city. But not today. This morning I woke up to cloudy but sunny skies, with the temperature eventually reaching 26 Celsius.
A country road parallel to the beltway... this is actually formally within the City of Rome
So I went to a short circuit just outside of town (right beyond the beltway) and rode about 75km with a friend. Enjoyable day. Great riding. Happy Pete.
Clouds are getting a bit menacing, but still a great day.
What to say? I love to ride! I commute daily here in Rome, and am fortunate enough to have the time to ride regularly on my road bike whenever the weather permits.
Married, my wife allows me to indulge far too much in my delusions of cycling grandeur, with two wonderful daughters who are still young enough to believe that their dad is cool.
All in all, life is good.
