The eye of the storm passed over today, and the sun finally shone after a week of steady rain. My neighbor advised me to "Profitta dal sole, perche domani torna il brutto." I left a bit late because I needed to wash the dogs, but once underway I rode hard as possible. After reaching Pinzano I headed north along the Tagliamento to Peonis, a town on the slope rising from the river. My original plan was to climb a narrow lane which switchbacks up the mountain to Cjanet, but I ran out of time because I needed to get home to walk the dogs by 1430. So I rode home as hard as possible too. Didn't bonk or collapse and had the fastest average speed I've ever ridden for such a long rolling ride- 26 kph. Got home just in time for the dog walk- mission accomplished!
