Views are breathtaking. The trip in order to reach the confluence by bike, elevation give or take 1km, while the sun was beating down was also ... breathtaking, but as usual cp was worth visiting.

I started pedaling from Feltre. Going via Busche, i crossed river Piave, and then turned right. There has everything begun.. I got down to driving arduously uphill. Via Canai, Stabie, nearby enchanting spring up and up. Views became more scenic, spectacular, magnificient and picteresque. During my 'climbing' uphill, it started raining quite heavily. 100m from cp i left the bike and went up through the forest. Was quite steep there. Finally i reached the point, made some photos and hid the cache.

Carrying on with riding downhill, i was thinking about the fact that 1 second downhill equals 15 seconds uphill on the same distance. In Lentiai, i'm in several minutes and finally, went to Feltre via Busche again.

I brought with me sharp, white piece of rock from Dolomiti in memory of my trip..
