Cycling in sunny Sicily: photos from a cycling guide

Cycling in sunny Sicily: photos from a cycling guide

In the next few days I will be cycling with some American and English cyclists and I was thinking about the cyclists to whom I’ve already shown this part of La bella Sicilia this year. So far, I cycled with Dutch, American, English, Irish, Scottish, German, French, Israeli, Belgian and Romanian cyclists and I had a great time with all of them. In this post I’ll show you some pics I took during a few of those rides. The first cyclist, Sorin, came from Romania and stayed here in February.

A Polar Bottle traveling around the world… (caption contest update)

On June 16 this year Tricia won the caption contest, so I sent her a Polar bottle, which 11 days later arrived safe and sound in Canada. I just found a @PolarBottle at my front door! All the way from #Sicily! Grazie @Don_Bici! pic.twitter.com/Pbc77fWvyx — Tricia Eggeling (@Trish_Eggeling) June 27, 2013 This summer Tricia went on a (cycling) holiday in France and took the Polar bottle with her. Here are some pics she just sent me: Thanks for the lovely pics, Tricia. It looks like you had a great holiday in France! I hope that Polar Bottle will travel some more and maybe finds it way back to Sicily, say somewhere around May 31 2014…;-) Looking forward to welcoming you on this lovely island. Cari saluti dalla bella Sicilia!...
