I was told to forget about hills for a while, but that is really hard to do here. However there was no real reason for me to attack the hill near Anzu..except for the fact that I had failed before and wanted to see how I'd go "right now!"..I did it..thankfully..now I dont have to return there. It's a nasty little climb peaking at 16% that goes up to a church, so I was accompanied on the way up by cars full of people going to mass and politely beeping their horns as they approached the blind hair pin bends...something I was grateful for on the way down.
The rest of the ride was going over old territory and I did manage to find 2 laundries,although the one at Anzu I think was not quite what we wanted. The one at Cesiomaggiore fit the bill...open from 0700 to 2000 and with drying too. I rewarded myself with a tiramisu ice cream at Santa Giustina and also located the bike shop there. A truly great ride. Home again I quickly fell into nanna nap mode and have whiled away the hours since then prior to joining the other students at the welcome meal.
Feltre, like Sankt Johann, is a sort of second home.
