The road tees at a bridge, where you go right. It winds around and goes through a little tunnel at Sottoforca. After this, turn left and begin climbing very steeply to Vigna. Over the crest you'll see the castello ruin and beautiful church on the hill. Skirt right around this to Costa (from here I could see the house we lived in 19 years ago) and then continue down westward till you reach Madonna del Zucco. From here down through Graves, across Torrente Cosa to Molevana (where we used to buy fresh cheese, butter, eggs). Across the main road to Usago, Sequals and home. This was great fun. I have to go back and ride these hills some more.
