The Italian Alps Ride 3: An easy rest day with only 21 miles and 2650’ of vertical

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This was a rest day in preparation for tomorrow, which will be our last and biggest day on the bike.  We ride the Umbrial-Stelvio loop which gives us 90% of Stelvio on from the South, and 100% of Stelvio from the North (all 48 switchbacks!).  It’ll be 64 miles and over 10,000’ of vertical.

I finished the ride with what will probably be my last pizza in Italy.  I savored every bite.
