Day 11 of advent and things are definitely Christmas-ing up here in Italy. We have seen lots of Christmas lights and Annunciation Day fireworks on the 8th December in Maiori on the Amalfi Coast. It’s also time to start a new top five. This one will feature some of the crazy roads we have ridden, though many of them are too hilly to be actual race tracks they definitely look the part (especially on Google Earth).
The first entry is from the Italian Appenines. We weren’t really expecting this mountain range between Bari and Napoli but can confirm that it is very hilly indeed. This climb is near Tolve, and took us from 300m to over 800m.
