Day 8

Finale - Vence 

What a fabulous last riding day. Only a little rain, but sunny most of the time. All kinds of roads from highway to goat trail, romantic villages like Zuccarello and Peille. Now we have to say good bye to great riding buddies and friends. Tears.......

Day 7

Rapallo - Finale 

The first day with some rain, but still a great riding day.

The biggest challenge was the fog in the Mountain, zero visibility.  The group managed it and we had a sunny afternoon with some good Riding.
