I rode through Le Cure, up Via Palazuolo to San Domenico, then up the Fiesole road to the Maiano turn off, which I took. I enjoyed the descent, although I am moderating the speed at the blind corners at the start after a near collision around a month ago. Down to the San Martino church then up the super nice Vincigliata climb. What a perfect, beautiful road. Yes, it does have a pretty long stretch at 10 to 15%, but no traffic, good road surface and great views. Turn right at the end of this road and the descent to Montebeni ensues. Catch a couple of turns and you are on the amazing descent to Compiobbi.
Over on the main road just a kilometer or two to the turn off at Le Falle, then another favorite climb to Monteloro. A little water in Monteloro, then finish the climb to the L'Olmo road just below Alberaccio. A left turn and a nice gradual but very fast descent to Fiesole. I turned right in Fiesole to take the World Championship descent to Caldine, then down Via Faentina then home. Super nice, relaxed day. 27.2 miles in 2:12 rolling time for an average speed of 12.4 mph with 3100 vertical feet climbed at an average temperature of 72. Love it!
