November is traditionally the month of rest off the bike here in Italy. My club continues its Wednesday and Saturday rides but they are much more relaxed and shorter. We typically ride to Bardolino and linger over expresso so that we will arrive back at Boscomantico for lunch time. This will be the general routine until January, getting in base miles and maintaining fitness.
On this particular day Atillio and I decided to take our guests, Brent and Pasquale, through Garda and onto to Torri del Bennaco where we climbed towards Albisano and were rewarded with exceptional views of Lake Garda.
