I was in Calcio only a couple of weeks earlier and had experienced the best part of my whole adventure. Throughout the past six weeks I had met lots of people, cycled over 1500 miles and had gotten myself lost on many occasions.
I was to spend the days before my return in Verona and Calcio, I had the intention of visiting Padua as this had come highly recommended by Simona before leaving Lake Garda. I unfortunately got side tracked by food, I called into a little cafe on the straight road to the train station and had some lunch, followed by a stroll and a waffle stop.
. It was a small stone patio with a few small round metal tables, chairs, a cooking area and a couple of outdoor sinks. The weather had been blistering hot all day and there was going to be a beautiful sunset.
I followed th SR249, SP31, SP29, SP5 and the SR11 these roads were magnificent.I had cycled for 2 hours and came across a sign for Auchran a supermarket chain I had become familiar with.
The campsite is situated right on the water’s edge, I however had to set up camp at the back on a mound of grass, although it was at the back of the campsite it was higher up than the caravans which dominated the rest of the site the view was excellent.
I followed the SP11 again but ended up on a motorway slip road, another cyclist had passed me earlier and I didn’t see him turn off, so had to backtrack. I stopped for coffee and a Panini and planned another route to get to the SP4. The SP4 was an easy road, reasonably flat with great scenery.
