Stage 4: Chiavenna to Chur

An acquaintance of Petra’s joins us in Chiavenna, intent to cycle with us all the way to Kassel. As we say good-bye to our hosts at La Specola they offer us a gift, a locally crafted handmade wooden bowl. As it turns out we are the first Canadians to stay at their B&B. How incredibly thoughtful!

The three of us start out that morning with beautiful weather. This is the day we cycle up to the Passo dello Spluga a 2,113 metre high mountain pass. Near the top we stop in Montespluga at an inn and have a warm bowl of bean soup. Yummy and satisfying having spent that last half hour in rain and fog. Warmed up we head back out in the fog toward the peak of the pass and where we cross into Switzerland.

The weather eventually cleared and we had a beautiful ride in Switzerland into Chur. Accomplished 110km.Back
