Later in the Afternoon – Bicyclists

Later in the Afternoon - Bicyclists

We were in the square near our flat later in the afternoon and suddenly many, many bicyclists came riding into the square. There was a lot of excitement and everyone seemed to be gathered around one person. We asked a person nearby who luckily spoke some English what was happening.  He told us that the bicyclist Mario Cippolini was there. He was the national champion of Italy twice. He’s the man farthest back in black. The man I asked seemed a little put out that I didn’t know who the bicyclist was.
