For here, today's ride was about as flat as you can get. We rode out the Cascine, hooked up with the back roads to Signa, then the river road to Montelupo. From Montelupo, up the valley to Cerbia, then the only real climb of the day up to Chiesa Nuova. We rode out to San Casciano, as he wanted to have a cafe at a certain bar and show it to me. It is a great place, I met the owner, and I will certainly keep it in mind for client stops in the future. Leif is great at sharing things like this, which really helps me give my clients the best possible experience. From San Casciano, we rode down to Falciani, then home through Tavernuzze, Galluzzo, Cinque Vie, to Firenze. Great afternoon ride. 50.7 miles in 3:12 rolling time for an average speed of 15.8 mph with 1490 vertical feet climbed at an average temperature of 75.

Here is Leif just ahead of me on the way to Cerbia from Montelupo.
We worked together quite well the whole ride.
And, I thought I would just throw this one in. Emily made this incredible cake
for my birthday on Monday when we celebrated with the grandchildren.
The cake is very good, but the artistry was mostly for the kids.
