9/11/2015 - Today was the first day of our Terruggia Bicycle Tour -
Alessandria to Valenza to Terruggia
Our first week of cycling on the Cyclomundo trip officially ended today.
Now we are cycling to the small hilltown of Terruggia near Casale Monferrato.
We will be staying in an apartment for the week and will do loop rides from Terruggia.
Before coming to Europe, I mapped some rides from Terrugia using GPS routes
from Italian cyclists plus Michelin maps and Google maps.
ABOVE -Market day in Valenza - lots of clothing in the first several blocks,
