Legendary Climbs of the Giro d'Italia 2015 Part 2

Arrivederci to the Dolomites!

We departed the Dolomites today but yesterday enjoyed the Passo Campolongo where you see Larry and Kim making their way to the top.

A long descent from Arabba sets us up for the Passo Fedaia where you see us from far above riding up the narrow gorge as the Giro has done a time or two. Look closely, you can see two tiny cyclists in the center of this photo.

From there its on to the Passo Sella where you can see Heather posing at the top with the bike Steve Fellini so kindly lent her. Grazie Stefano!!!

Today was our exit from the Dolomites with a repeat of the Passo Campolongo before one of our favorite passes, the Pordoi. Above you can see Brent making his way to the summit, where....

 ...the group posed for our traditional photo in front of the Coppi Memorial, (l-r) Larry, Kim, Craig, Jeff, Jennifer and Brent.

From there it was down to Canazei and through the valley before turning up the Passo Costalunga with pranzo at the top. The ride after lunch offers splendid views like this one enjoyed by Craig and Kim on their way to our lodging (after a big-time fun descent!) perched on a cliff overlooking the Adige.
