... On the first floor - frescoes on the ceiling - a huge bed, lovely sitting room and best of all - a grande bathroom with a separate spot for the toilet. (Very handy early in the morning!). Today appears to be another long day in the saddle . . . Amazing that our butts allow such abuse! :-). 53 miles and 4300 miles of elevation to gain. Yikes! Until later . . . Now at our lovely villa in Cioccaro Di Penago - it's 5:30 and we've had one last beer with Avi before ...
... Oh - and of course, there were four different wines accompanying all the different foods! :-). Can't forget the wines!

Interestingly enough, Dave had the same issue with leg cramps riding with the group ahead. Fortunately for him, Tom had electrolytes to share and that helped him finish the ride . . . Guess we need to be more prepared when we ride such a challenging route!
We now have 5 days in and around Alba, having left the Alps, reluctantly, due to rain and fog. On the first day we went to a 'degustation' festival in Bortolo, the town boasting Piedmont's premiere red. Although the area blends Italian and French history, the wineries certainly do not follow the French style for degustation. Here, 'degustation' indicates a food and wine day, offering local products-- cheese, ham, sausage, honey, hazelnut ...
