I rode through Le Cure, then up Via Faentina, climbing through Caldine and Olmo to the junction above Olmo, just below the pass Croce alle Vetta. I cut over toward Bivigliano, but turned down to Pratolino, then cut across to the Monte Morello road to get some water, then went back over to Via Bolognese to return home. Spectacular weather, and a nice ride. Getting out certainly flushes the frustrations away for me. 17.9 miles in 1:15 rolling time for an average speed of 14.3 mph with 1845 vertical feet climbed at a sun effected average temperature of 77. Wow!

What a pretty day for a quick afternoon ride. This is on the
climb to Olmo on Via Faentina.
I love this little road that climbs gradually toward Bivigliano
from the junction above Olmo.
