Day 8 Finale - Vence - 280 km Unfortunately our last riding day, but what a day! Endless curves,  hairpins and some challenging goat trails. On top of it we saw some nice little villages like Zuccarello and Peille. It is hard to say good bye to a wonderful group at the wellfare dinner. In the end everybody was happy. Day 7 Rapallo - Finale -270 km Extreme roads in extreme conditions. We had rain and dense fog, slippery roads in some parts,  but the group did very well. We made it to Finale and we also had dry roads in the alternden. The beer After the ride tasted very good today. Day 6 Rest day Rapallo - 150 km  This group is really tough! We went for a ride to Cinque Terre in rain and fog and there was no question about that.  Hopefully the weather will get better tomorrow.  Day 5 Mondovi - Rapallo - 280 km  Vinyards and hazelnut plantations in Piemont, fantastic riding in the Ligurian mountains and our hotel right at the beachten.
