Day 5 – In search of trails (Lago di Cavedine)

We had a fairly unsuccessful search for some nice tracks today. Unfortunately they’ve bulldozed a new road through a forest north of Torbole that previously had some good tracks. We wound our way through the hills north of the Gardasee. Frauke sped down a track covered in shingle and larger stones. I stopped briefly to check how strong the trees were with my shoulder. Despite Frauke’s coordinated descent she made a uncoordinated dismount from her bike failing to unclip from her pedals while stationary. Yay.
