Pompei to Cassino

Travelling through the outskirts of Naples was never going to be easy, so for the first 40km of today’s ride we stayed together.  The road surface and scenery were to say the least average, but the rest of the ride made up for it.waiting to start
Our lunch stop this day was at a play ground, complete with bike racks…we made use of all the facilities.
