I started this ride running some errands: the bank, the post office, etc. But my final stop, the pharmacy, wasn't stocked yet so I killed some time with a training climb. The ride from Costa to Rifugio Bornass is another contender for best training climb of Pedemontane Pordernonese, but with a caveat: it starts with a kilometer averaging 12% up to Santuario Madonna del Mont, with some +15% in there. Once you get past that it's as sweet a climb as you'll find: 7.5 km of 6.1%. A bridge washed out a couple years ago so you must hop off and walk a few meters, but it's really a net plus because no cars come through anymore. At the rifugio I turned onto the wide, smooth beautifully-switchbacked road from Piancavallo to Aviano. One of the funnest descents I know of.
Back down in the "real world" I picked up some prescriptions then headed home. Maybe tomorrow another escape into fantasy.
