The forecast called for more rain so I planned to stay home, but suddenly Il Meteo updated, it was only partly cloudy and cool, I could ride! I rode to Maniago, up through Fora Colvera, Poffabro ( where a festival was drawing crowds), and then over Pala Barzana. More festivals by Andreis till I reached the main road to Barcis. Over the dam and behind the lake to the climb for Piancavallo. This back route is underrated: 14km of 6.6% is no joke. At the top I opted for the main road because of my late start, but it wasn't too crowded. Maybe the cool temps moderated the touristic hoard. Good workout on some trusty old companions.
