At dinner John explained that the plan called for two loop rides, one around Mira, the other from Chioggia. I suggested that one of the advantages of having a van was that one-way rides were possible, and perhaps we could just ride to Chioggia. The others concurred and John, being super flexible with us, agreed. We plotted it out and I loaded the route into the GPS and this was the ride we ended up with. I had really brought the GPS along to record tracks, but it came in handy a several times to put us back on the right track.
