Cycling in the Dolomites – day 6 – Passo del Mortirolo
In which I take a wrong turning through a 4km tunnel, eventually conquer the hardest climb ever, am moved by a memorial to Marco Pantani, eat a Twix, negotiate a steep descent, consume 6 delicious loin chops, treat myself to a gelati and have a distressing encounter with a rolling electric shutter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_MSbP4k_zo&t=6s
Cycling in the Dolomites – day 5 – Passo de Gavia
In which I climb a pass made famous by Andy Hampsten, observe copious amounts of snow and ice, espy a monument to Italian fallen, enjoy a fabulous fast descent and wander around Bormio with Ros, searching for cycle jerseys and tat (which is in short supply). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5wGU3gaKLA&t=37s

In which I climb through 47 hair-pin bends, meet a photographer from Kingston, employ some fruity language, am plagued by motor-cycles, view a stunning waterfall, observe people skiing, make some offensive observations about middle-aged men in sports cars and visit a rather odd cafe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojSM76DXU7k&t=15s
