The area is almost completely flat and therefore is somewhat wind affected so sometimes I can blast along the flat, straight, smooth surfaced roads with extremely low wattage and sometimes it's not quite so easy. So sometimes I feel the need for a small reward!
Our apartment at Lancenigo, where I've stayed previously, is about 6km north of Treviso making for a 15 minute bike commute, most of which is spent navigating the city streets. The road into town is a main one but there are bike and pedestrian paths and also a generous clean bitumen edge to the road outside of the white line.
This weekend I was originally going to do the Sportful Dolomiti Gran Fondo at Feltre which last year took me 6 hours to complete, but since my travel and race fatigue has only just lifted, I'm giving it the flick.
Instead I'll go along to rego, tell them I'm not riding, collect the bag of goodies, check out the expo, go for a nice longish ride and then visit a town just north of us here which is coming to the end of a week long festival concluding with a Palio. Last weekend I checked out the place and bought these things!
