At the base, I turned left, then left again, and climbed back up to the church above Cercina. I checked it and it climbs 330 vertical meters in right around 3.4 kilometers, averaging around 10% grade. It certainly felt that way today. From the top, I descended again, this time on the second from the farthest right option. A fun descent, quite steep in places, but now as nice as the first road. At the bottom of this descent, I take a road that brings you in right above the Carriege complex, then ride the main roads home. Another fun ride. The summary is: 20.3 miles in 1:42 rolling time for an average speed of 11.8 mph with 2400 vertical feet climbed at an average temperature of 46. Ciao!
