Umbria - Day 7: Bevagna to Spoleto (by bike)

Previous Up Next

After a slow morning in Bevagna, Joe, Scott, David, Tom, and i rode to Spoleto via Trevi for our last travel day. In the morning, we had a pleasant ride along a canal bike path. Lunch in Trevi was at a restaurant featuring eggs, not previously encountered — Tom had a frittata of sorts. We wandered around town waiting for the museum of olive production to open, and then went through that, along with BDan, who had arrived from Montefalco in the mean time. Afterwards, we did some souvenir shopping, then hit the road again. We had a lot of cue sheet difficulties in the afternoon, given that the route was effectively 'take the bike path to Spoleto'. Riding in Spoleto was no fun, between traffic and construction, and we got a bit cranky. Dinner was okay — the high point was the introduction of Welsh rarebit to our set of Italian food options. After dinner, gelatto, and then some hanging out and sampling the chocolate liqueur we'd picked up in Trevi.

i am reliably informed that this is not a pullup bar
