Salzburg to Milan 2019. Salzburg to Milan. Epilogue

Milan is 40-miles away from Bergamo, an easy ride if you are so inclined. We needed a rest day and decided that Bergamo would mark the end of the trip. There were no more mountains to be climbed, the high passes were now all behind us. We had a light breakfast at the hotel, drank lots of coffee, then did some sightseeing around the town. Bergamo is the type of town where you could walk around with a camera and be constantly taking spectacular photographs. Each one would turn out as if it were pulled directly from a holiday brochure....

Salzburg to Milan 2019. Day 7, Bormio to Bergamo.

108 miles. 11350 ft of climbing. Strava link: https://www.strava.com/activities/2472029776   When Justin had the constructed the route, he had made the finish line at the town of Bergamo.

Salzburg to Milan 2019. Day 5, Solden to Scuol.

77 miles. 5800 ft of climbing. Strava link: https://www.strava.com/activities/2472029348 We were living off of a beige diet, toast and cereals for breakfast. Pasta for lunch. Pizza and chips for dinner. Any snack was either peanuts or crisps. I was starting to feel unhealthy and had more than a slight fear that my teeth may begin to fall out, or my bones start to crumble through lack of decent vitamins and minerals. How happy I was to come down to the hotel restaurant in the morning to find a multicoloured display of fresh fruit laid out for breakfast. I think I...
