Watching highlights of the three week bike race around Italy has left me with some wonderful memories.  Not least the riders racing up mountains in blizzard conditions in late May.  But outside of the mountain days some of the most beautiful views were found in more modest landscapes and this watercolour illustrates one of many fleeting impressions made as the racers sped through the towns and villages of Tuscany.
