Our final ride today was a short one with a mere 400 m ascent. The route took us from Arco up into the baking hills to the west. The descent was technical with lots of loose rock followed later by a steep descent on cobble stones. We ended up at a spot along a river where we had stopped briefly two days earlier. I paddled in the river for a bit before we rode back to the campsite, stuck the bikes in the car, and headed back to the land of cabbage. Mmmm cabbage.
