Day 19 Cinqua Terra

Our workshed campsite in Latte kept us dry and Big Agnes made for comfortable sleep. We roll up and down the coast. At one point the canyon we are crossing allows a clear look to the north and the close mountains are snowcovered. The last few days the roads though narrow have supported a continuous procession of quick road riders. In one small town the roads are blocked for a kids bike race. 5 to 10 year old kids on serious quality bikes. I've not seen such small wheels or frames in the states. We fight the winds and hop a train as planned to Cinqua Terra. We decide to stay in Riomaggiore since it is the largest of the towns - expecting a better chance of getting a room. We find a good room for 50E and walk the town. Pasta overlooking, the med was not enough so we grab takeout pizza later. Heading out to watch the sunset now. Tomorrow we plan on walking between the 5 towns.

Keep Rolling,
