Easy Spin Along the Adige

The road along the Adige River, from Verona as you head towards Parona, is closed to all traffic on Sundays. It's scenic, receives full sun, and flat so it's immensely popular for an easy spin, and for rollerbladers and runners.

Today I did several loops along the Adige and then added a small loop into Pescantina for about 1 1/2 hours of spinning easily, soaking up the rays and marveling at Monte Baldo in the distance.

In general, the weather is good enough to ride all winter. The only time I really don't like to ride is when it's cold and foggy. There are times I'm just lazy also.....

Photo: an aerial view of the "diga" (dam) where many clubs start their rides; you can also see the roadway to the right which is the one I refer to above.
