I've been getting a lot of emails (as well as a few comments added to old posts) from people wanting tips and advice on biking in southern Italy. Some of you are riding (or even hiking!) the Via Appia, and it's a shame that it's so hard to get a group of people together when our schedules, wills, and finances are all in alignment.
We're basically all doing prettymuch the same ride, just not at the same time. So...
A few weeks from now, when I get through a big writing project I'm working on, I'll start posting tales from the Via Appia. These clips from my travel journal will give you a close-up view of touring Italy by bicycle, and hopefully answer all your questions. I'll probably set up the names of various regions and cities as new categories so you can find the info you need more quickly.
Keep on writing, and of course, keep on riding! 🙂
