When Joan and Ric Potter suggested we join them on a bike trip in May 2001 through Umbria and Tuscany, we jumped at the chance. It was October 2013, several years later that we returned to Italy, but once again, it was unforgettable. We visited Rome and met our friends for our biennial gathering in Sicily. October 2017 was another opportunity to visit Italy, this time for a month. Ray and I toured on our own part of the time and met up with friends for more adventures.
