13- Grand bicycle tour in Italy from 2011 (Appennino Pistoiese)

Day 10) Cutigliano - Abetone - San Pelegrino - Castelnuovo di Garfagnana Today I will have a nice climb towards Abetone which is a BIG climb. I enjoy nice scenery.
After one hour of cycling I get to Abetone which is a nice resort.
I carry on cycling on SS12 till Passo delle Radici where I turn left towards a new BIG.
The weather breaks, it will start raining soon and I will be descending towards Castelnuovo di Garfagnana on SP71 road.
In the distance I can see some villages.
Finally I reach Castelnuovo all soaked and I go to visit it. It looks like a forteress.
It seems to be a small medieval town with strong fortifications.
It will rain all the day and night and so I will take refuge, sleeping in a small tunnel where the rain can not touch me.
Day 11) Castelnuovo - Busana - Vairo In the morning I have to wait a few hours beacause it's still raining. Finally I leave this walled interesting town.
I will take a secondary road towards a new BIG. In the distance I can see nice villages.
All of a sudden I see a bird and I will catch it to play with it a little then I will set it free.
On my way I meet a nice lake with some wild ducks.
After climbing a bit on SP12 road I finally get to a new BIG, passo de Pradarena
