Yesterday we were pretty tapped out but still managed to ride 50 miles through the vineyards and along the canals. Mostly flat riding with a few impromptu sprint points, one sustained climb and the usual fun and games along the way.
Today we did the flat, coffee shop ride nice and slow while hoping to recover for tomorrow’s race. Despite the easy ride some of us were feeling pretty bonky on the way home. Time for a huge dinner and a good night’s sleep.
Saturday afternoon we race again. Another circuit race on a 6 mile loop. It’ll be good fun. Stay tuned for the race report and a report on Sunday’s ride. The current plan is to venture deeper into the Dolomites and do more scenic climbing: Giro de Dolomiti. Should make for great riding, awesome photos, good stories and some healthy appetites.
