18th day: on the way back, part 1/2

3 Aug

the night was very warm, so I could only sleep 4 hours. 

I met with Rita as we took the same trains to Torino: I had decided true last days o go back home via Zermatt as I wanted to rest some days at home and it would be not enough time to cycle all the way home – especially since I was sleeping so less lately. 

Everything went well – beside having 30min delay when arriving at Châtillon. Furthermore, as I was really tired, I had in mind to take the bus to Cervinia – which I found to be impossible. So folks, forget bike vacation in Cervinia if you want to travel by public transport. 

So the program was set: 29.5 km and 1480m of climbing… Starting at 17:30, I arrived at 21:30 quite exhausted with a lot of time to think…And Breuil-Cervinia is not Zermatt: only few hotels are open!
