... on the way and slowing heading into towns we must have been doing 200+ kmph.
We arrived in Rome about 1940hrs and caught a cab to our Hotel which was about 1.5km away. A bit of trouble fitting the bike bag in the taxi but nothing a few occy straps couldn't fix! The Hotel seems nice, simple but neat and tidy.
Tomorrow we will hit the streets and look at some of the attractions. Being in the city centre, most of the main sites are within 30min walk.

After a fairly epic journey we arrived Trento about 1530hrs. First thing after checking in - make sure the bike is ok...then reassemble.
Went for a short ride into town to register for sunday and pick up the bag of goodies that all the competitors receive - race numbers, rider guides, race info and a bag of pasta from one of the sponsors. Met up with Trevor and his wife Donna from the Sutho ...
