Off to Italy!
I am all packed after packing 6 times over.
I just hope I have everything.
My buddy will pick me up and 10 AM and we are off to the airport to catch our flight to JFK. If Earl is gracious enough to allow us to land at JFK and take off again, I will be headed to Milan around 6:00 PM.
The tour, which will be comprised of mostly cycling but will incorporate some trains and a couple of ferries.
We will ride in three countries Switzerland, Austria and Italy. The Swiss part of the ride looks like an interesting ride. We will take a train to Airolo which makes use of several spiral bridges.
We hope to ride the Madonna Del Ghisallo weather permitting.
The ride form Innsbruck looks very cool with a ride down the Etsch bike path.
All weather permitting of course. They were calling for snow just the other day near Innsbruck.
If that is the case when we get there then we move to plan B. Sorry but I am a woos when it comes to the cold.
I hope to file a report or at least some pictures on my return.
