20th August. Geoff, Richard, George and I headed out.
The ride started at Chivari, but finished at Nervi, 97 kms or so. Again, a route involving two biggish climbs. George and Richard charged up the hills, leaving Geoff and I to plod up behind. Geoff mentioned his knee on several occasions. I had no excuses other than genetics.
Here are Richard and George asking what had taken Geoff and I so long.
The final climb was especially lovely, it had the feel of a proper mountain.
With a spectacular view down to Genova and the sea.
The descent was a bit hairy, and George’s bike woes continued. His tyre punctured. George and Richard went to fetch the car and tend to George’s bike, while Geoff and I investigated recovery supplements in Nervi Harbour.
1880 climbing, 97 kms, 3025 kcals.
