After four days of spectacular but challenging riding, our tired legs had a day off. For lunch, Ian and I took the two gondola ride up out of Alleghe to the ski-area-in-winter Col dei Baldi (elevation, 6,300 feet). Turns out there is an easier way to get up a mountain than riding your bike up it…
Here is some of the trip:
Just got on the first gondola, heading up out of town.
Looking back at Alleghe
Some of the ride was really steep!
Ahhh, the views…
On the second gondola–we’re really starting to get up there!
At the top–ok setting to have lunch in.
Love the light up here
