Day 2 of the cycling tour was significantly more interesting than day 1. 51 miles of pretty countryside and rolling hills, ending at the Boscareto Resort & Spa in Serralunga d’Alba.

The morning was fairly flat and ended at a lunch spot about mid way. My morning ride partners are in the photo below. Dave and MC from Denver.

In the afternoon we quickly transitioned into the Langhe region and things got hillier by far. I chose the long option with only a few others. Lots of up and down and at least one descent that was crazy steep and full of pot holes.

But otherwise, the ride was great and looking forward to more of it tomorrow. At the conclusion of the ride at the hotel you can see from the photo that it is surrounded by vineyards. Fantastic views.

I’ve had a helluva time with my tech on this trip. Wifi routinely doesn’t work and I’ve had trouble last night / today too so now posting this from the wifi in the breakfast room at the hotel. Doesn’t work in the room.

And my Garmin seemed to work yesterday and then when I went to upload the route it wasn’t there. Grrr. Hoping it works better today on Day 3.
