Just a few more pictures of bicycles….

Bike in window
 Oh my, the Italians love their bikes. Not only are the men mad on cycling up into the mountains Tour de France style (complete with v tight bright lycra kit) on state of the art machines every weekend, but the women don't miss a trick when it comes to bike embellishment. Here are some of my favourites, shot in Lucca and Forte dei Marmi.

Bikes with crests
This bike had its own crest embossed into the leather mud guard thing at the back

Bikes with leather lined baskets
This one has a leather lined basket and note the wood-effect paint job and fancy stringing on the mud guards.

Bikes with double baskets
VERY useful double baskets

Bike with smart paniers
Smart paniers, we loved these so much we bought a set, 29 euros. 

Bikes with dog
The ever present small dog……..
