Ca' Poggio

 I started out today following the most direct, flattest route to Conegliano- SS 13.  Normally I avoid  this road like the plague but on Sunday there are no trucks and fewer cars so it’s not bad at all.
l followed my cue sheet navigating through Conegliano and soon was cruising on SP 635 below the prosecco hills.  I turned upward on Ca’ Poggio, a short steep ramp up to the crest.  From there through San Pietro del Filetto and down the gorgeous vine-covered switchbacks to 635 again.  I did try a shortcut, which miraculously did not get me lost.  The ride home also was blessed with some Pasqua divine intervention- a tailwind that kept me in the 28 to 30 kph speed range most of the way.  A perfect Easter ride.

Giro d'Italia U23 will include Ca' Poggio
this year
