According to Cycling News, this is what I’ll be dealing with throughout the week. Not simple! At various (specified?) times each day barriers along the streets will be locked shut and pedestrians will be blocked from crossing.
And so it was today. I left the library and headed toward the Duomo, only to realize that I couldn’t get across the street and on toward my apartment. I waited and watched. Every once in a while a cyclist, followed by a sponsor’s car, would zip by. Whew! And then some staff member opened the flood gates and the crowds crossed over. Moses letting his people go.
