Mezzomonte 3

Sunny cold morning.   Enjoyed seeing many groups of riders coming up from the plains on Via Pedemontane Occidentale.  Descended to Gorgazzo at 50 meters above sea level, then rode up to the turn off for Coltura.  The road gets very steep (16%) till the top of the town, and then starts a climb up 11 tornanti to Mezzomonte at 496 meters.  I stood on everything over 12%.  Lungs felt great (they like cold dry air apparently).  I rode slowly on the way down, looking for a spot to take a picture, but the trees blocked all the great shots of the tornanti etc.

Normally I warm back up on the 300 meter climb home but not today- I was cold when I got home.  But it was nice walking the dogs in the afternoon with the sun shining- felt a little warmer.

Garmin hasn't saved the last two rides.  I tried clearing out the memory.  If the next ride is dumped I'll try replacing the battery.
