« on: January 09, 2012, 04:23:33 pm »
Hello boys
Yesterday accomplice a wonderful sunny day we had a good bike ride.
Destination of the Rock Entella, an important archaeological site near Countess
Entellina (PA). Yesterday we were just so many .. more or less a twenty bike! as
path I have chosen a series of secondary road has given us proud ..
views .. but also some minor "technical glitches" like going through a long piece of
road completely flooded by the mud! Take a look at photos .. just to see what
Success! After a good lunch at the "Refreshment Calatamauro" .. including the exquisite
homemade ricotta and fennel ... we went up on the Rock of Entella. a
magical place. While waiting for the detailed report .. good vision
Here all photos
