Cycling down the Via Francigena, from Siena to Rome

This will be a collection of posts for our friends and family in which I will try my best to tell the story of the adventure we had while riding our bikes.
On August 14th Anna and Edo hopped on a train headed to Siena and started cycling along the Via Francigena, an old pilgrim’s way that led all the way down to our hometown Rome.

We rode the 290ish km ride from Siena in six days, leaving on a Tuesday morning and arriving in front of St. Peter’s Basilica the following Sunday. The whole thing was both humbling and exciting, and I will try my best to convey the emotions we felt on our trip by writing a journal peppered with some pictures here and there.
