Day 10: Trieste to Maniago

EDITOR: Unfortunately I only seem to have received Kaye’s outline notes for this day of riding. I have asked her if she has another version, so will leave this as a placeholder, and then will post a new one if I get one – otherwise, enjoy the notes, exactly as I received them 😀

123 k 800 meters up and 800 down
This is the start of another four day section and this was the easiest of the four days.

First 18 k along the coast then last view of the Adriatic Sea ( the top of the Mediterranean) and we turned in land next time we see the sea we will be in the Netherlands
