Mediterranean Alps Extreme 1703

Saturday, September, 16nd, 2017 | Michael Göbel | Europe

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.
