At the beginning of my trip today I checked the beeline from Mantua to Cremona on my LocusMap. 45 km. I added 30 % and thought I can do that easily.
I became courageous and thought to make a detour to Brescello on the south side of the Po to see the little village where Don Camillo and Peppone were produced in the fifties and sixties. A detour of approximately 10 km.
At the end I did 100 km without Don Camillo and I took a shortcut of about 10 km too.
Today I was on the bike eight and a half hours.
The ciclying was easy. No climbs but in the second half of the way I was the lucky guy again because of tailwinds. My high speed was 31 km/h LocusMap showed.
The landscape is plane as far the eye can see.
Always an eycatcher were the grain fields with the numerous red poppies 🙂
As the breakfast this morning wasn’t that sumptuous I felt hungry the whole day.
The temperature was fine so I could removing the primaloft jacket.
Writing this lines with an open window in my flat I hear the rain drum onto the roofs.
First on Monday the sun shall shine again. So I will stay at Cremona until then. That is a good timing because my upper legs muscles are very poor and need a reasonable pause.
