From Impruneta, descend / climb / descend / climb to Strada where I went through town, then took the turn on the south side of town to descend then climb to San Polo. I had not done this in a while, and it was really fun. The climb to San Polo is beautiful with a very gentle nice grade. At San Polo, more water and another head dousing, then a climb up then over and down to Cappanuccia, then into Grassina. From Grassina, it is quick to Cinque Vie, then I can take my favorite way into town. Nice ride. 31.1 miles in 2:01 for an average speed of 15.4 mph with 4360 vertical feet climbed at a hot average temperature of 94. Still fun.

The super tiny and steep climb on Pozzolattico vecchio.
A couple of shots of the beautiful road between
Strada and San Polo, a great climb with a wonderful,
consistent grade of around 2%.
