I’m in Milano Italy!

Update #tourdupisa: This morning Marlies said goodbye so that was nice, im off for 80 km to Milano. I had t go early because i couldnt checkin between 15.00 and 19.00 and want to see Milano also. The road wasn’t that spacial today, on the border with Italy the guy send me trough with a little wave. But unfurtiantly 500 mtr across the border i was stopt by another policeman because i biked when the light was red. But with al lot of „mi scusi” of how ever you say it i could go further. The hardest part of this stage was in the begin so i made some fun in the middle and end of the stage. Hostelowner explained me some thing about Milano and public transport. For 4.50 euro you can travel 24 hours trough the whole city. I went directly to the Milan and Inter stadium for a tour. On the walk back i found two cellphones. Out of nothing a saw two nuns running they asked me if i had found to phones. Yes i did! Ive been blessed two times so nothing can go wrong anymore 😉

After Milano i’ll go to Genua. Now i’m in the Mac Donalds to watch the supermountainstage in the Tour de France 🙂

FYI; $8 shoes for walking 20km is not good.

Lugano, wauw nice lake!

Update #tourdupisa: Today i had a easy ride, 15 km in total 🙂 But this stage had the steepest part of the tour du Pisa, 18%! Just a 200 meter but it was a hard part. Nu im checked in at the Montemarina Hostel in Lugano. Take a swim, go to the supermarket and found a nice place in the park to eat and watch people. Always good! After that i walked with my shiny feets to the main shopping street in Logano. What should i do, rent a waterbike or with the train uphill and walk down. For now to the hostel i’ll buy a to ticket uphill 🙂

Cycling the St. Gotthard Pass…. Wauw!

Update #tourdupisa: the day of surprises… Also this night i slept real good in my Hostel in Andermatt. Packed my bag and on my way to the Coop supermarket for some stuff. Bananas, Bread, Sweety’s. I picked my energy gels out of my big bags into my small food bag. I dont know if its the morning or something else but the climb directly killed my legs. In the begin i spotted a sign 9 km with 630mtr up. Auw! another 7% climb. In the middle of the climb i found the ritm so that was nice. But 2km before the top there was en cobble stone road. Killed my legs another time. On the top of te st Gotthard Pass i toke a little rest so i can in a good condition downhill. On the road walked some cows with bells, real Swiss! Roads with no sidewalls and a max of 68 km/h downhill. Downhill thats nice! But the managers of the tour du pisa had something i didn’t expect. Another climb! 6 km with 5.5% steepness. In the beginning so steep that you can hear me scream for my mother i guess. Yesterday i found and booked a camping place ware i would go but that was behind another steep hill. My legs were killed 3 times today so i biked around the hill and found the camping. On my way i thought of some things where i can compare this stage with; i think a labor with twins.
