The weather here has been in the high 60’s, low 70’s!

I hopped on my bike and rode north, trying again to find a place to ride around the city.  I saw a building that looked like an observatory on top of a hill, so I decided it’d be my objected to find a road up to the top of the mountain/hill.  I eventually found a road that wound its way up the hill (which is called Monte Mario) and there was a park at top.  In order to get the best view of Rome, I had to carefully ride my road bike down a path meant for mountain bikes.. The cobbles were a little scary, not to mention a good amount of broken glass!

I made it and got to see some amazing panoramic views of the city.  It was a perfect day!
