Back to the past on the road of my childhood holidays, eleven years spent in Valtellina, and the last ones I pedalled some of these roads with my little bike!!!
A one-day trip on a road less pedalled, a great climb, not famous as the Stelvio, different from a classic alpine pass, but always amazing. The last kilometres before the medieval Fraele's Towers are an incredible succession of hairpins, two tunnel into the rocks, the towers on the right and the grevel road to the Cancano Lakes, two artificial lakes created with the construction of a dam.
Down on this road and back to the towers, three hairpins down and a turn right on another beautiful grevel road, the Decauville, a 9.7 km flat road on the side of the mountain, great landscapes and memories of the childhood riding this road as it was the hardest one...
A short ride in the mountains, no traffic, some off-road...simply fantastic!!!
