Difficult Descent

We headed to the east side of the lake today and cycled up a sealed road to the TV masts on the hill. It was another sweat-profusely sort of day and we did just that. A constant stream of cyclists headed up the road with us. From the TV masts we headed along an unsealed road to the start of the descent.

The descent was technical with plenty of ruts and loose stone. We slid and hopped our way down. Frauke paused to graze her arm against some rocks. Although the descent was tricky, I enjoyed it. At the bottom we joined the main road and “roadied’ back to the camp site with a nice warm tail wind.

We ate pizza in a little restaurant for tea. Yum yum.

Above left: A view from the east side of the lake back towards Torbole. The fin shaped hill is where we zipped up briefly yesterday on our second ride. Above middle: Frauke had a run in with some rocks during the technical descent. We weren’t the only ones that found it difficult. We passed some people pushing there bikes down the track. Above right: The forest was a blur of green. Or is it just blurry due to our intense down-hill speed?

Below: We relaxed at the side of the lake after returning. The water is deliciously blue but a bit cold.
