Oscar brings the milk bottles and fills us up.
One of the views from Oscar's backyard.
One of the views over Lake Lugano. We climbed up, up,up and I was SLOW.
The face I make when I try to get on a bicycle where the saddle is too high.
Not a bad view when stopping for a mechanical adjustment.
Something very cool about cycling in Italy - fountains. All the cyclists only have one water bottle on their bike because there is a public fountain in every town, village and city.
Some fountains are so big you could also wash your clothes!
Others were quite decorative. Err... that's a nice way of saying a bit scary.
And still others were decorated with statues. Water, water everywhere and each a drop to drink...
Stopping to play tourist with the beautiful view.
Oscar rests while Dave fixes a puncture. Again, not a bad view.
And finally Dave and I pose for a photo over the lake. It was his vacation that I poached so special thanks to him for inviting me along. Gosh, I think he is skinnier than me now! More photos from the non-cycling part of the vacation next.
