Well, after that, I finished the descent to the start of the Vincigliata climb, and enjoyed the climb up to join the road toward Fiesole, then over to the main road to Croce alla Vetta. At the top, I went over to Pratolino, which involves a little more climbing, then descending into Pratolino. I branched off to get water at a beautiful fountain in the shade, which routed me over toward Monte Morello, but I turned back to Via Bolognese. I descended Via Bolognese to San Bartolo, then went up and over to Cercina. I went over and up to the church at the top of the climb and picked the first option for the descent. I had not done this one for a while, and it was fun. Back down and over to above the Carregi complex, then back on the main roads to the apartment. 27.5 miles in 2:10 rolling time for an average speed of 12.7 mph with 2970 vertical feet climbed at an average temperature of 92.
