Hi readers, it’s a crisp morning and we’re ready to hit the road again!
Our ride from Turin was the longest we’ve done in a long while. The 146km (90 miles) was mainly steadily downhill so we were able to maintain a really good pace. Despite this, we arrived at our current spot just after the sun went down. Fear not though, we had turned on our lights and rode the last km’s carefully!
After a bite to eat and a cold night’s sleep, we got up in the morning and headed for the centre of Milan. We walked around the city and were very pleasantly surprised by the architecture and the wide, open streets. We spent a lot of time sat in the main square dominated by the Duomo (the big cathedral in the photos). Our latest sample of Italian food confirmed that their ice cream is amongst the best we’ve tasted!
Our journey back included a ride on the metro and a fair walk back past the San Siro, home of the AC Milan and Internazionale football trams. We even tucked into some gorgonzola cheese at the camp site before retreating to the bar for warmth!
Today we’re riding towards Parma, where we hope to find another campsite to stay in. The weather is set to be clear and crisp so hopefully we’ll have a pleasant ride!
