It was a great climb, and it was foggy in La Panca, and the roads were wet, so I took it slow on the way down. At one point, two riders passed me, but soon I saw one of them have a back wheel fishtail, and I then caught back up with them and followed them down. Around 1/2 the way down the roads dried out, then it was game on. What a fun descent this is. From the bottom of the descent you climb to Strada in Chianti, then over on a ridge which is a pretty fast power ride, then you descend into Grassina. From there it is in town roads to Cinque Vie, then the back way to the Viales. From there, it is a 4 kilometer push to the apartment. All in all, a very nice ride on a cool, cloudy, foggy day. The clouds had enveloped Florence while I was gone. 46.1 miles in 3:14 rolling time for an average speed of 14.2 mph with 3465 vertical feet climbed at an average temperature of 51.

A beautiful road and I have dropped out of the fog for now.
I like the light in the fog. This is on the way from Cellai to Incisa.
The fog awaits on the way to La Panca.
Almost back into the fog on the way to La Panca.
