From Bassano di Grappa to Mestre

(Cycling day 6)

So this day was really awful as I found out, that my mattress got an hole (but so tiny I couldn’t find it), my watch with fresh batteries got water inside and was now broken and finally the connection between the bike and the E-Werk was nearly broken – but the weather was fine!

But – after the usual camp breakfast I started to begin that ‘interesting’ day which would end after planned 85 km – but in real it was 124 km…

So leaving the site I’ve had a great cyclepath wich is called the Bicitalia 2 and 4 and also the german one “München – Venedig”.
Small roads and a marvellous small town which name I’ve forgotten.

Finally I came to Treviso and as I’ve planned the track at home I had no thinkings about any upcoming problems – but they came after that wonderful town.

There were two deviations which took me about 1 1/2 h and – the campingsite would be closed at 8 pm.
So a irish couple stood at a corner and talked to a friendly guy and he offered us to lead us to Mestre.
It should take us about 1 h – and he lead us through industrial zones, shopping centres and very small pedestrian paths.
in the end I reached the camping and was completely finished.
As the weatherforecast was very bad for the next days I took a bungalow and next to me there were two ladies from Bordeaux – and I showed them my old blog,  of course.

Riding down the Valsugano valley

(Cycling day 5)

Today’s ride was one of the most impressive one I had before.
Starting at the Lago di Caldonazzo and rolling down along the river Brenta on a newly made cyclepath it was outstanding.
As I’m laying already in my tent after having a great Dinner with a guy from Munich – a cyclist with his mtb and streetmachine – just a few pics.

After so many impressions I finally found my way to Bassano di Grappa – a great city with so much history

So in the end I got my place for my tent a little bit out of town – with many bikers and paragliders.

And – they’ve got a beer from Bad Reichenhall which is about 60 km from my home.
