Cycling - Pyropes in the Po Valley
by ant1606 on Jun 24, 2016
Martiniana Po, Piemonte, Italy
Mountain biking | 12.4 miles
Cycling  -  Short ride to the site hosting the rare Pyrope gemstone, which is only present in a handful of sites on our planet.The site is obviously protected and nothing can be seen, it was just an idea for a partially shaded short ride on a very hot day. A visit to the specific museum (only on Sundays, free admission) in Martiniana Po is quite informative.

Cleveland, Ohio, United States
Mountain biking | 24 miles
Cycling - Part of the Cleveland Metroparks system, the Mill Stream Run Reservation hosts two mountain bike trails: the Yellow and the Red. Both one-way single-tracks thrrugh the woods and my GPS track combines both of them.

I haven't found much technical difference between the Yellow and the Red sections....

A walk under the scorching sun would have been...

Ask for details at the visitor center.Track may be a bit inaccurate due to satellites fix bouncing off sheer walls.Erosion...
