Laurens ten Dam went cycling.
October 14, 2019
We still had 278 kilometers ahead of us and today we also faced over 3000 meters of climbing. Nevertheless, we started the day in high spirits!
The iconic panoramic views, colorful houses and steep terraces of the Cinque Terre accompanied us for the first part of the day before we headed back inland.
We stopped in Lucca for some food. It had just gone 5pm and we had to get our lights out to prepare for night riding. To be honest, I was a bit worried at that point: still 115 kilometers to go and we’d be riding all of it in the dark, out of a busy town during rush hour and with more climbing awaiting towards the end.
By the way, if you’re asking yourself why the recording is in two parts..this is how close we got to calling it a day and to getting in that car for the last 25km when João came to meet us out on the road on SP101.
