I coasted back down to Ugovizza and then rode the ciclovia to Tarvisio. I then took the highway toward Slovenia and turned off at Laghi Fusine. This is one of the prettiest places in Friuli, with beautiful blue water and dense fir forest beneath Monte Mangart on Slovenian border. Marilyn, Rocky and I went snowshoeing there one winter- stupendous alpine scenery in the backcountry.
On the return I used the ciclovia through Tarvisio, much nicer than the highway. Tarvisio has a network of these bikeways, really extraordinary for such a small town. I'll have to return soon and explore more of them.
