Stories, information and comments from Piancavallo climbers
Story by frank from Los Angeles, United States, submitted on 10/04/2008
We rode from Maniago to Montereale Valcellina, then on the old, closed road up the canyon to Barcis. From there we climbed to the top, over to Aviano and back to Maniago. It was a nice day. Did not see anyone else (person, car or bike) from the time we got on the old road until we got down towards Aviano.
The old road was a little hairy: Washed out, large trap door holes. Had to climb a few fences. But it was a pleasant afternoon ride in May 2006.
