The ride was going great until Google maps sent me down a deep muddy path near San Lorenzo. I ended up doing a loop to get back on track. Then at San Vito between my cue sheet, iPhone and Garmin I still got lost. I need to get some bifocal Oakleys, because each stop takes 5 minutes to get my glasses from their case then store them again.
Anyway by the time I got lost a third time (how is it possible to not see something as huge as the Tagliamento bridge at Madrisio?) I was way behind schedule now so I turned around at San Mauro. One more time I got lost at San Paolo; after that I was impeccable. The Garmin Oregon died at San Paolo so you could roughly double the distance indicated. Coming home I rode a slightly different route through Rauscedo, Vivaro, Dandolo and Vajont. Excellent workout, I'm exhausted.
