I took the main road toward Greve from Tavernuzze, turning off for the climb through Luiano to the road by Mercatale, then over to San Casciano, then through Spedellato, turning off for the descent back to Tavernuzze through San Andrea. I normally climb this road, and it is a spectacular descent. From Tavernuzze, I took the main road back to Galluzzo, then turned off and climbed to Poggio Imperiale, then did the curvy road back to Porta Romana, then back through the city to the apartment. Ended up being close to 3 hours, so much for the short ride. Around 2750 vertical in 38 miles. Check the link for more info. Ciao.

What a pretty road from Monteoriolo to Burrchio.
Climbing to Luiano.
A beautiful small vineyard just past Luiano.
The vines are changing colors with fall here. This is just outside of Mercatale.
Almost back - the climb to Poggio Imperiale.
The trees with the green field beyond said take this picture.
