Val d'Artugna

Quick ride down Via Pedemontane Occidenatale to Dardago, then up the climb through the Val d'Artugna. It's between 7% and 10% for 3 or 4 km, good pavement, and lovely scenery. I posted about this route previously in January ( http://dolomiti-friulane.blogspot.com/2010/03/giais-val-artugna-dardago.html ) but that time I stopped at the barrier (450 meters) because of ice higher up. This time I continued up to the end of asfalto at 577 meters. The descent was great- very fast. Rode up the 200 meter climb toward home quickly, even passing a paceline (GS Pratenese bike club), but in fairness they had just just come down from Rifugio Bornass, so they were probably pretty tired. Great ride!
