Ferrara on Wheels

We took a day trip to Ferrara~ just a quick train ride from Bologna. The town is fascinating... but even more so the fact that it is a bicycle town.The cobblestone streets have a smooth path just for the cyclists.Men in suitsStylish Italian women in heels.Local teammates.How about a bike parked outside the MaxMara window...or a stylish Italian man on this cell phone. Old friends stopping for a chat.Or mom's pedaling as fast as they can.Teens go everywhere in a group.But one day... ... you can look forward to riding off into the sunset on one of these.
This bike is fully equiped with basket and bird ...and could this be valet parking at the Carlton?
You need to check out Jerry's Blog for his view on Ferrara...We had a small competition for the bet cycling photos. Winner get's bragging rights.

Ciao y'all~

I don't know...it's between Jerry's picture of the bike with toilet paper and your picture of the "just married" bike. I would have liked a picture of the two of you on a bicycle...maybe? Enjoying the pictures!

I used to love riding my bike. I'd better get back to it I'd say.

I love your collection. It is hard to decide between yours and Jerry's. I love the decorated bike and your collection gives more of a feeling of Ferrara. But the toilet paper carrying biker is a crack up on Jerry's.

All the pictures were great!!! You have the more clear pics, but I hate to be picky........ so you both have fabulous shots!!!
It is so neat to see everyone riding their bikes...wish we could do that more around here!!!
