Cycling day 9/29 km ~ From Grado to Bassano del Grappa
So after a relaxing day I’ve started again from my first big stop in Grado to Cermignano to hop on the train to Bassano del Grappa. This was to spare some time as it would have been 225 km to go.
On the cyclepath I’ve followed today – the EuroVelo 8 – you can cycle from Athens to Gibraltar – unbelievable. So this trip was made by Andrew P. Sykes, a teacher from London and he wrote a book about this journey.
So on my way to the trainstation I passed by Aquileia which was great again.
So starting in Grado I’ve had a wonderful weather. At the station I’ve a met a german cyclist couple on their way back home. So we arrived at Venezia-Mestre where I’ve had to change the train – and it was raining like cats and dogs, also with thunderstorms.
It changed a little bit and in Bassano del Grappa there were only clouds. So I’ve managed to reach the campingsite, built up my tent – and than it started to rain 😂
At this site is situated next to a perfect paragliding spot and it’s well-known in Europe for the good conditions.
I met some paragliders and we went into the restaurant next to the campingsite. It was again raining like cats and dogs with thunderstorms – unbelievable! So my small tent did a really good job!
