Friday July 15, 2005, 103 km (64 miles) – Total so far: 6,228 km (3,870 miles)
The day started with a long climb to Cavalese for lunch. It was very hot in the sunshine. We then enjoyed a fantastic freewheel down the Val di Cembra to Trento. The Cembra valley was as beautiful still as we remembered it from last year and even nicer to do the downhill version.
We’re staying in the youth hostel in Trento where we have our own room, it even has a telephone, how times have changed, it’s more like a hotel with hotel prices too at €20 each for bed and breakfast. 33°c was spotted in Lavis at about 4 p.m. but I think the thermometer must have been faulty because it seemed more like 40°c.
For dinner we stumbled across a real gem; an ‘all you can eat’ pizzeria, we managed a salad starter, a pasta course, several pizzas plus four desserts between us and all for around €4 each, including wine, marvellous.
