Hi -- I'll be in Rome next month and can either take a train or ride a bike to Florence (a lovely trip I've biked before -- 4-5 days, nothing arduous). I won't arrive with a bike, but I'd love to pick one up, used, for 50-100 Euros at some flea market or second-hand store, in order to avoid the train. Does anyone out there know how to score a cheap used bike in or near Rome?
I've been to flea markets in 15 different Euro cities, and they all had large stocks of bicycles for sale. I can't imagine Rome would be any different. The trick is figuring out when and where the flea markets are, and then getting there early.
A little off -topic, but I was curious about the route to Firenze? Do you go thru Arrezzo? I lived in Perugia a long time ago and think it must be a pretty hilly tour.
More on-topic, try to hook up with someone here.
