Casera Campo

Needed to get a quick ride in early this morning so I picked the highest nearby point you can roadbike to: Casera Campo.   Nice and cool at 0615 as I rode down to Pedemonte.  From here turn right on Via Monte Cavallo and head up the hill to Piancavallo at 1243 meters.  From the roundabout take the road  marked Sauc, then descend through the forest till you reach a clearing and turn right.  This road is asphalt at first, then later concrete.  Ride on past Casera Campo to end of pavement at 1435 meters.  On a mountain bike you can continue to Casera Valle Friz at 1500 meters, Col di Palse, Il Cansiglio etc.  Instead I turned around and headed down (watch out for the drainage channels).  Many more roadbikes ascending now that the sun was broiling the road.  Made it home before 0945.  Nice morning!
