I chose a ride I thought would be around 1-1/2 hours, but was shorter. I went up the main road to Fiesole, which I rarely do, and enjoyed the climb. I stayed on this road through Fiesole and continued the climb to the turn off just before the pass. I turned off and descended on Via Faentina all the way home through Caldine, Pian de Mugnone, and Le Cure. The weather was surprisingly nice and warmish. The ride was 17.9 miles in 1:15 rolling time for an average speed of 14.3 mph with 1555 vertical feet of climbing at an average temperature of 62.
I enjoyed the quick work out and was home in time to relax a little before going to Kate's for babysitting. Torrio, the younger of our two grandchildren, is almost 3 and is really fun to be around these days. He is just excited and exuberant about almost everything. The down side is he shows the same exuberance with being angry or crying when that is going on, but the vast majority of the time it is positive energy, which is simply fun to be around.
