I was feeling surprisingly good this morning, but wanted to do an easy ride as I was pretty sure that would be best for my body. I did a fairly flat ride and tried to keep the pace under control. Sometimes the pace just creeps up on you anyway. I rode out through the Cascine, then out to Signa, over to Lastra a Signa, then up and over the pass to Ginestra. From Ginestra, I rode up the valley to Cerbia, then up to Chiesa Nuova, continuing down along the ridge and taking the descent into Scandicci. From Scandicci it is a straight forward crank home in city traffic, which in it's own way is kind of fun and exciting. I pretty much always feel better after a ride, and today is no exception. Ciao.
