Castello di Caneva

Yet another local training climb.  Today I climbed to Castello di Caneva from the easier side (Sarone), though you can also ascend directly from Caneva (steeper).  The weather was cold and clear, pretty much perfect, with several large bike clubs riding up Via Pedemontane to take advantage. After descending to Caneva I took a little road Paul Kim once showed me, which crosses beneath 2 large aqueduct pipes bringing the waters of Fiume Meschio down to a hydroelectric plant at Stevena.  I continued west to Villa di Villa and Sarmede, then wandered south and east till I finally ended back at Caneva.  Nice ride home.  Now I'm exhausted.
