Foothilly ride

Sun popped out today after a few days of rain.  The mountains out back are capped with snow.  So I decided I should stay at low elevation to avoid the snow and ice.

Headed down Via Pedemontane to Sarone, then turned and climbed up to Castello di Caneva.

After descending to Caneva, I headed up past Castello di Cordignano at Villa di Villa.  Very steep little road up over the hill to Rugolo (15% stretches).  I continued along this hillside road through Montaner to Fregona.

I descended steeply from Fregona to Vittorio Veneto, then found the start of the forested climb to San Lorenzo.  Beautiful fall foliage!  After the summit I turned toward Tarzo, on the hillside above the valley stretching from Vittorio Veneto to Valdobbiadene.

I then crossed over the ridge above Conegliano and descended to Vittorio Veneto.  Lovely views from that ridge.

I rode fast along the flat road to Fiaschetta, and then climbed the rolling hills up to 300 meter altitude and home.  Total 105km and 1367 meters of climbing.
