Florence, Italy – Bikes are a popular mode of transportation in Florence, or Firenze, because cars and trucks are prohibited from driving in the city’s centre. Florence was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982 because its considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. Its old cobblestone streets were designed for horse-drawn carts and not retrofitted for major car traffic. As a result, a beautiful bike culture has flourished for generations. Natives take pride in customizing their bikes with special touches – from handmade baskets to wheel protectors. Here are a few photos from my recent trip.

I found this old bike for sale on the side of the road in Palmdale California. There are always interesting things on the road in these parts.
