The rest of us decided on a nice, mellow tour and went from Montelupo through Samontanna, Villanuova, and Ortimino to Montespertoli. We had a cafe in Montespertoli, then descended to Bacciano, then climbed to Montagnana, descended to Cerbia, then climbed to Chiesanuova. From Chiesanuova, it was pretty much down to Scandicci, then we split up with 3 going toward Casellina and 3 of us back to the Centro. Fun ride, team. It is really fun to be a part of such a nice, welcoming, fun group. All share the passion for cycling, which is what bonds us all together. Ciao, ragazzi!

A couple of pictures of the team and a few others we were
passing on the way to Villanuova. A beautiful little road
here in Tuscany, on one of the few areas that is relatively flat.
Some of the agricultural flatlands looking toward Empoli from
the road to Villanuova.
