Trento - Day 2 in Canazei

Our second morning provided rain.  We had arranged to ride with Mirko, a waiter in our hotel who was friendly, spoke good English, and apparently was a Saeco fan.  However, after sitting in the garage chatting and watching water fall from the sky for an hour and thirty minutes, we opted to drive into Trento in search of the Moser - Simoni bike shop and other adventures.

The Moser - Simoni bike shop is great.  It has a decent selection of cycling clothing, and more importantly, cases full of trophies, jerseys, and other memorabilia from the careers of Francesco Moser and Gilberto Simoni.   We met Arianna Simoni - Gilberto's wife - at the shop and got our pictures taken with her!
