Short ride to Meduno and then up toward Monte Valinis. Just after the beginning of the climb a man pointed in the direction I'd come from and teased 'that way it's all downhill for 30 meters.' Nice workout up to 800 meters or so but then it got too icy where the snow melts and refreezes everyday. A man was blocking the road with his tractor towing a long beech tree so it seemed like a good time to turn around. Nice descent and flattish ride home.
