From Bad Endbach to Asolo Bicycle Solo Tour 2016 May 7th to 15th
Sunday, 15th May (Day 8)
I started the day with a typical Italian breakfast, which I guess isn’t supposed to be for sports people. But I was so close to Asolo now, I wasn’t going to start to complain. I packed my back pack for the last time and went out to get on the bike. The weather was good and the roads were quiet. It was all a steady downhill from here, with a drop in elevation from 350 m to the lowest point of around 125m after 70km and then the final climb of 2.5km to Asolo at 200 m above sea level. I had an average speed of just about 30 km an hour so I was going to be very early in Asolo. So I decided to ride around the Montello near Montebelluna. I even stopped at the hotel (Col delle Rane – our usual place) on the way to Asolo to say hi, but it was very quiet there. From there I had less than 7 km to go and I arrived at 12:30.
It was a great feeling to arrive at the Corte del Re, and see my Italian friends. Franco Cappelletto and his family. We’ve known each other for over 15 years.
And that was it, mission completed.
It was time to party and enjoy a weeks holiday in Italy.
