In Spring and Fall it's fairly common to see cyclists with heavily loaded bikes winding their way to Verona. They come from Austria and Germany, and beyond, using bike paths. The bike paths almost reach Verona and it's the "almost" part that gets challenging for these long distance riders as they try to find their way to the heart of Verona.
Recently we found Wim and Els Rensink, from Holland, on a back road looking at maps. We offered to lead them into Verona and we invited them to join us for our traditional Wednesday lunch. They accepted our offer and a good time was had by all.
