From the Molino de Vento, I descended on the very fun road to Rufina, then climbed to Diacetto. I am still enjoying the use of my new Garmin cycling computer, and I guessed the climb to Diacetto at around 400 meters or around 1300 vertical, and I was within a few meters at the top. I dropped down to Pelago then, and made the decision to keep going to Tosi, which is a very fun climb through Paterno, then it mellows out to Tosi. From Tosi down to Donnini, it is a great descent that you truly do not need to either pedal or touch the brakes. Yabba Dabba Doo! (I often still channel Fred Flinstone) From Donnini, it is a great continuation of the descent all the way to Sant'Ellero. There, you join the main road and contour / descend to Pontesieve, then return to Firenze. Although predictions were for showers, it stayed dry and beautiful, although a little humid. Another great ride in Tuscany. As always, click the following link for a map, profile, and other various details of the ride. Ciao.
