This combo provided just enough leverage to get the mountain pedals off and of course install the road pedals (because they don't have to be THAT tight) and I could now be in full-on euro roadie mode.

After a glorious ride on the best roads that I have ever seen, we loaded up and went to Arrezo about an hour northeast since on the first Sunday of the month there was an antique street market in town. Great things to look at and purchase along with great and classic European street scenes.
After the bottle of wine with lunch, I needed a pick-me-up and this may have been the best espresso of the week (it was all damn good).
Bike riding pictures are coming next, I promise.

Bianchi on the streets of Rome.
Bike sharing bicycles neatly lined up ready to go. (came back through later in the day and they were ALL gone and being used)
Night time street scene near where we stayed, this is right at foot of the "Spanish steps".
MUCH much more to come, namely Tuscany, but that will have to wait until another day.
