Pictures, a cafe and snacks, and we were off to Vallombrosa. I really like the road over to Vallombrosa, but it is not good pavement, but as a former mountain biker, I don't have any problem with it. Behind me, one of the team had a flat, so as I waited in Vallombrosa, I turned around to see what happened, and caught them around 5 kilometers behind me. More water in Vallombrosa, then the awesome descent to Tosi, then continuing to Pelago, where the descent is interrupted with a short climb, then finishing the descent to Pontasieve. We detoured over to Rosano to return to Firenze on a different road. Really fun morning and great ride, team. Ciao a tutti.

Passo della Consuma. Wow, what a beautiful morning.
Vineyards, long views, mountains in the distance - what
more could one ask for?

On the road over to Vallombrosa, there is this very tasty and
pretty water source. Che Bella!
