Day 96: Lago Maggio to Lago di Como

Friday July 8, 2005, 100 km (62 miles) – Total so far: 5,749 km (3,572 miles)

A day of contrasts ride-wise, the morning was mostly nasty, wide roads with lots of traffic, but our afternoon ride around Como was simply stunning. We did try to find a few country lanes in the morning, but most attempts ended with us getting lost.

We’re camping tonight in Lenno on the west bank of Lake Como. It’s an OK site, but they’ve packed us in like sardines; we’re virtually pitched on top of the German couple next to us.
