We started at the Agriturismo, then rode through Tavernelle, over to Barberino, then to the turn off for Certaldo. We regrouped a few times, as a couple of them were a little slower. We really enjoyed the ride over and down to Certaldo, which took us a total of around 2 hours. We had no real lunch plans, and they were not interested in a big sit down lunch, so we packed the bikes back up on the van and drove over to San Donato in Poggio, where we started again. Up, the down, then up, then down through La Piazza to the start of the little climb toward Panzano. The skies got quite dark, and rain started, but the van was just around the corner, so they loaded into the van and Leonardo and I loaded the bikes on the van. We drove over to Lucarelli, which was my plan to ride to, and stopped for some excellent paninis. Most of us had a cafe after lunch, then we returned to the Agriturismo via the COOP in Tavernelle. After they did some shopping, we dropped them off, returned to Firenze, returned the bikes, and I was back home around 5:30. I was tired, so I put off the blog for yesterday until this morning. Ciao.
