Colle Umberto

I pass by the turnoff for Colle Umberto often but rarely visit.  A shame because it's a lovely place.  Today I rode Fedaia down there and got a few photos.  This a ride for everyone, not too steep, with marked cycle routes showing you the way.  If you visit Conegliano or Vittorio Veneto check it out.
