Travel Blogs from Falcade
Day 26 I was up at 6am to get ready for our 8am start. We had 278km to travel today to Corvara Italy, crossing 6 mountain passes. Today was described as D Day in our guides. Our inexperienced rider had been persuaded by the tour leader not to ride with the group today. He would follow a less mountainous route using his GPS. I therefore volunteered for "tail end Charlie" again. Hopefully to ride at my own pace and enjoy myself. We headed South East from Pontresina to Bernina ...
