Road Bike 4:00:00 [2]

Bergamo-Comersee (Menaggio)-Lugano.
Legs were tired but I was still able to ride hard. The legs somehow got used to the distance and climbing, so legs were not completely dead after the 100km and 1600m climb. Could not resist to attack on the Menaggio climb. :) Climb was not steep, so kind of felt like the pros who were riding around Lake Como yesterday (Giro Lombardia).
All in all three very nice days with Corsin and Denis. To be repeated...

Road Bike 5:50:00 [3]

"The climbing day". We did three passes/climbs in the hills north of Bergamo. Super road cycling terrain; lots of small roads with little traffic, gentle gradients. I already felt in the beginning that my legs were quite ok today, I was just afraid of the distance and meters of climbings ahead. Did the first two passes in normal pace, not following Denis on the second one even though I could hardly resist... ;)
On the third pass, I still felt good and as the road got steeper, I wanted to show the other two boys that I'm not "Stefanie" ;) but still "Stefan" with an existing fighting spirit!! I put all I had into the pedals and suprisingly dropped the others quite quickly. The remaining climb was longer than expected, but I was full of endorphin and managed it in good pace. The ride got quite long at the end; we reach our hostel when it already got dark. 130km and 3000hm. *proud*. :)

Road Bike 4:00:00 [3]

Lugano-Arogno-Bellagio-Lecco- North of Bergamo, 100km, 1400hm.
Legs got tired after 60km, last 40km was on busy road, not so nice. The highlight was the climb to Arogno, must have been over 20%. Pretty tough with 39x27...
