.... Brought the railway down :-(
Everything worked fine. I was on the second train about half an hour to Roma Termini. I had checked all possibilities and would take the train at 17:12 via Firenze so I had 1 hour to change trains. So I would arrive at bologna at 23:50. Via booking.com I made a reservation at a hotel next to the station. So I could sleep and take the train to rovigo at about 10. At Rovigo I could start pedaling the Etsch bike path.
Looked like a good plan. But the thunderstorm with heavy rain destroyed this plan.
Some water ran through the coach but that didn't matter at all.
At Campoleone the train stopped - technical problems.
We had to go out and wait for a bus service. In front of the station seemed 1.000 people to wait. Me too.
Then I had the idea to go to Rome by bike.
30 km beeline means about 45 km to go. (finally 45,4 km)
And there was a bike path on locus map.
The start of the bike path wasn't to find so I took SS 7 with partly lots of traffic but the possibility to be very fast.
Cause of some construction zones in the capital it took a bit longer but finally I arrived a quarter to 8 pm.
So the long night of the railway can start. I should arrive at bologna (Via Ancona!!!) tomorrow morning at about 7. I will see what else is going to happen ;-)
