Adventure, Food and Gravel – Day 6

This day was about bike, hike and bike. As my legs were very heavy of the previous 5 days I thought it was a better idea to take it “easier” today. In the village next to my hotel in previous rides I past a summer toboggan run and I thought it would be cool to take this after some hiking on the top of the mountain. So that was the plan and I took my bike to ride the 5 km to the base of the mountain. After parking the bike and buying a lift pass I went up. On top I found a very cool hiking park that was themed about the Mountain giants. Along the 4 km route you can find all kind of giant related objects, ear, nose, cart and many others. After the hike I went for a drink and sweets before going to the ticket office to buy the Fun Bob tickets. Unfortunately the waiting time was 2 hours so I decided to walk down the mountain to return to my hotel. This 3 km walk on steep slopes were killing my legs and the easy exercise became more straining than the bike rides. Luckily I booked a massage in the evening so after returning my bike to the hotel and a beer it was time to ultimate relax. This was really the cherry on the cake to wrap up my holiday.

This was an amazing holiday and I am looking forward to go back and ride more of those awesome gravel roads in the Dolomites.
