A road to Ravenna

Great to be here among walledtowns friends. Four days to get here but quite an enjoyable journey: by train and ship and 250 kilometres cycle. The  climax was the St  Gotthard Pass - not the ascent (just hard) or the summit - a bit of an anti-clmax - BUT the terrific, at time ghastly descent by cycle on rough cobble stones round enumerable hairpins to Airolo - over a thousand metres in 12 kilometres: photos to follow
