Right after climbing to the ridge, you turn right, then a quick left for a super fun downhill to the valley where you turn right then a relatively quick left to get the road to Romita. I have looked for this road the last two times I was in the area, and found two different roads that take you either side by 6 kilometers or so of Romita. Well, right road today, a good climb, then the really quite perfect ridge road from Romita through San Pancrazio, San Quirico to Montagnana. Turn right for the super fast descent to Cerbia, then the nice, gradual climb to Chiesa Nuova. I had a group of 15 or so motorinos pass me on the way up, they were all identical, and were numbered. I passed the group at the top, and am assuming that someone is taking tours out this way. From Chiesa Nuova, back over toward Galluzzo, then left for the fast descent into Scandicci, then back home through the centro. Yee-haw. Check the link if you wish, but a summary is: 53 miles, with 3950 vertical feet, average rolling speed of 13.1, in 4 hours or so.
Great fall ride - Monteoriolo, Tavernuzze, Luiano, Quattro Strade, ... by ridingwithcosimo at Garmin Connect - Details
I am totally into the vineyards changing colors, and like the shots down the rows.
Here, a church steeple is playing peek-a-boo above the vines.
More fall color in the vineyards.
