40 Years of Travel and Cycling
paraphrase Steinbeck “It was February 1972, it was Oregon and, though it was
dry in the married student housing at the University . . . it was raining.” We
were terribly homesick for Italy. In
1971 we had bicycled from Pisa to Paola’s home in Forli. Maybe someone would
pay us to “Bicycle across Italy.” That, was the beginning of a great adventure.
