    Gday mates

    yesterday i've took off from work earlier to make the Assietta's military road.

    i've planned to go with friends a lot of times, but unfortunately everytime something went wrong...weather, work, not enough fuel in the tank (in EU we still have the crisis....do you remember?:D)...so yesterday was the day, but the weather was pushing me to stay at work, but i didn't mind :D
    meanwhile i was driving the 60km of tarmac, from my place to the beginning of the unpaved section, i felt lucky :lol3 ... and so it was...no rain, sparks of sun, and the mountain taste.
    there where only the thunder sound of my bike, the marmots and a lonely Czech cyclist telling me about the night soccer match and the big beer he would be drinking during the match...
    some pictures for the soul :evil

    cheers
