Distance: 16 miles, Climbing: 980 feet
Today was the last day of biking and the shortest in miles. It was also the nicest day with the nicest scenery and lunch. The day started out with a short ferry from Korcula to the Pelijesac Peninsula.
There was a nice view of the city of Korcula as we left the harbor.
After we landed we got on our bikes. At first we were inland before we went along the shore.
There is nothing like combining biking with some wine and grappa so our first stop was at the Matusko Winery. They are world famous for their red wine - Dingac.
We got to sample four wines, one grappa and a liqueur.
The wines were very good and there was barrels and barrels of it.
This was before we got on our bikes and biked to lunch. This was a goodbye lunch since our guides were leaving us. At lunch we collected money for a tip for the guides and the King delivered a speech about how good they were and to thank them for their service.
The roads were empty and the scenery was spectacular.
At the end of the bike trip we unloaded our bikes and got in a van to go to Dubrovnik for one night.
We were dropped off at the Hotel Adria overlooking the entrance to the harbor at Dubrovnik. This was outside the old city of Dubrovnik and required a fifteen minute bus or cab/Uber ride into the center of the city. We stayed only one night as did most people and then moved into the old part of the city the next day.
Although most people went home the next day we did run into some bikers over the next three days that we remained in Dubrovnik. We went into the old city on the first night but when we returned to the hotel everyone was at the bar.
