Sauc MTB

Above Dardago the paved road comes to an end and a gravel road continues the ascent.  This is Strada Venezia delle Neve, a 1960's ski resort developer's abandoned route to Piancavallo.  Today was the first time I've ridden it without long stretches pushing the bike.  There were a couple of rock piles I had to hop off for but otherwise I rode the whole thing.  The trail eventually ends up in a beautiful area of grassy pastures bounded by forest and rockfaces: Sauc.  I will try exploring from the top soon so I can concentrate on the surroundings rather than the climb.  Wonderful wilderness ride.

Croda di San Tome
Way harder on loose rock than the
numbers indicate.
