Cold day. Rode through Arba and Pinzano to Lago di Cavazzo, Interneppo, and Bordano. North of Pinzano, La Strada di Bottecchia passes under the cliffs of a refuge for griffoni (see http://www.riservacornino.it/listaimmagini.html ), jewel-like Lago Cornino, through Peonis, then along beautiful Lago di Cavazzo, and up over the pass.
Stopped at the murale di ciclisti tornante (see http://italiancyclingjournal.blogspot.com/2010/01/cycling-monuments-memorials-plaques-etc_22.html ) to take some close ups of the paintings for a friend. Nice view of Monte Chiampón from up there. Cruised down through Bordano and looked back to see Monte San Simeone behind, then continued between the cliffs of Monte Brancot and Fiume Tagliamento to Trasaghis. What a beautiful place!
Strada di Bottecchia
2°C out, rode 116 km in 5 hours. HR 158.

Lovely ride down Via Pedemontane Occidentale to Caneva, over to Sarmede, up to Fregona and home. Quite cold, but sunny and not too windy. Saw a lady walking 2 cute black and tan miniature chihuahuas near Villa Villa. The hill up to Rugolo was tough- I had to stand after the second switchback. At the top by the church maybe 20 people were sitting by the wall above the cliff with their dogs on leashes. Maybe a dog blessing? Then cruised along the mountainside to Montaner, Fregona, and down the hill to Cappella Maggiore. My legs were tired climbing home.
