|We caught a 7am train from Acqui Terme, transferring at Genova en route to Cinque Terre. We arrived in Sestri Levante at about 9:30 to start our bike ride. Our destination was Corniglia, the middle and smallest of the five villages perched above the Mediterranean which compromise the Cinque Terre. The weather was noticably warmer and the ride very hilly! We decided to stop in Levanto on the seaside for lunch. Descending from the mountains to the seaside in Levanto, I had another mechanical incident. One of my rear wheel spokes broke, resulting in a significant wobble. I had to keep my speed down during the descent. Luckily, there was a bike shop in town with a mechanic on staff who was able to repair the wheel while Mike and I spent a few hours on the beach. It was great to swim in the Mediterranean and soak up some warm sunshine. We left Levanto at about 4pm for the last leg of our ride to Corniglia. Luckily we had made reservations for accommodation and didn't feel pressured to arrive too early. With the hilly terrain, it was just starting to get dark as we arrived in Corniglia, but with our flashing bike lights, we were quite visible even though there was no other traffic on the winding, hilly road into town. We completed 65km cycling from Sestri Levante to Corniglia.
