Camping Arizona to ?

In fact lots of question marks today but the old guy who runs this place could cheer anyone up; I didn’t need the bottle of Montpulciano alone!
So here is the plan; cycle back into Salsomaggiore Terme and see if either of the two bike shops that have been suggested are indeed open. If they are shut I will detour to Parma (there are worse detours in the World!) to check out the shops there – Simone has supplied quite a list. Should I have no luck there (which seems difficult to imagine at this stage), I should at least know how the bike is holding up and whether it would be possible to continue south over the hills without the spoke repaired.
So as to where I will be tonight, I could guess but without any real idea. What would be nice is if by the end of the day I could at least see the sea, if not necessarily put my feet in it. Keep watching and reading to find out if I can or perhaps even do….

  1. Hope the bike is ok, James said yesterday you have done well so far to cycle all that way all spokes in tact!!
    Back from France and had a lovely time (even did some cycling, but won’t embarrass myself with the distance) Sounds like you are having a magical time, take care.

  2. Just what I would have suggested. Sounds like Simone is a gem. Best of luck with the cycle shops and I hope you see the sea before sunset. Ciao!

What do you think?
