Home in time for a short ride, and although I think I did most of this ride last week, it is really one of my best short rides, so I bent my own rule and did it today. Just a super fun ride, a good workout with a fair amount of climbing in a short space, with most of the route having very little traffic. Up Via Bolognese to Pian de San Bartolo, over through Cercina to the church above the little town, down option #3, then back up to take the option around part of the Careggi hospital complex, then taking the option to go around the Meyer hospital part of the complex, then a hop, skip, and a jump and I am home. Ciao. 15.7 miles in 1:17 rolling time for an average speed of 12.1 mph with 1637 vertical feet climbed at an average temperature of 52. Showers pretty steady after turning off Via Bolognese, but really quite lite.

The road between Pian de San Bartolo and Cercina.
This is the second part of Cercina, a tiny town one of my close
in quick rides goes through. Fun place with almost no traffic.
