After the meeting, I was off for a ride, but by the time I was on the bike it was already around 11:00 and getting quite warm. I went my back way to San Domenico, then up to Fiesole (water), then up to the turn off for Monteloro, basically the top of the climb. I descended down the Monteloro road to Sieci, getting more water in Monteloro, then went up one of my favorite climbs to the molino de vento (windmill). From there, I descended to the Pope's road, which is almost to Rufina, then rode this road back over to Pontesieve. From Pontesieve, I rode the main road back through Sieci (water) then back to Firenze. 65 kilometers in a little over 3 hours, with around 3000 vertical of climbing.
The road to Alberaccio before the Monteloro turn off.
A beautiful view of very green vineyards and a villa from
the ridge road above Monteloro.
The Church bell tower in Sieci from the main public square
(piazza) where I got water and took a break.
