Framura…..Cycling through tunnels.

The day we arrived in Levanto, we cycled up the coast to Framura, along a cycle path which runs along a disused railway line.

It is unusual for being largely within a tunnel, with short sections giving a view of the coast, and a break half way at the village of Bonassola.

At the end there is a cycle lift, which transports cycles/dogcart/dogs down to a small harbour.

From the harbour you can cycle up the hillside, via the dreaded Italian hairpin bends, until the pins give out (about 500 feet in the case of the Jennings’ pins).
