We rode up the valley a little way to Ferrone, and took the turn to Strada. Another person had turned to go home after the Luiano descent, so we were 3 now. The climb to Strada is very nice, not steep at all, and two of us again stayed neck and neck all the way up. We regrouped, then returned back to Firenze via Grassina, Ponte a Ema, then across the first bridge and home. Really fun tour today. 52 miles in 3:12 rolling time for an average speed of 16.3 mph with 1562 vertical feet climbed at a sun effected average temperature of 57. Great morning ride!
