This bike packing trip was to be of a shorter distance with more climbing and only overnight stays. There were no trains so no hope of a "get out of jail free" card in case of an incident or bad weather.
Day 1 of a 3 day trip...58km and 645m climbing
Mellame to Feltre to San Gregorio nelle Alpi to Sospirolo to Sedico
|Pre coffee stop at about 35km|
|you just never know what you're going to see!|
|Having gone up to Mis I had then to go to Mas...to cross this glacier meltwater river|
|Our silo art is better!|
and on to Sedico where my hotel turned out to be situated above a group of offices/banks etc. Finding the way in was a challenge! Nice place though with a huge room and very accommodating staff as I arrived VERY early.
|Hotel Nord Est at Sedico|
|looking back ...any old excuse for a breather!|

|Traffic is normally governed by lights at each tunnel but not while I was going through, so much horn blasting by all cars.|
