I went out through the Cascine, then to Lastra, starting the climb to Pinone through Comeana and Carmignano. I stopped for some water in Carmignano, then stopped again at Pinone for cafe an excellent piece of crostata, and more water. At all water stops today, I drank, doused my head, drank again, and filled up. Got to have a strategy to stay hydrated. From Pinone, I descended down to Limite, a new favorite descent, then rode into Montelupo, and kept going to Ginestra, where more water was obtained. Into Cerbia, then the last climb to Chiesanuova, where I did another water stop, then booked back home through Scandicci. Really a nice ride, and the garmin link has the average temperature around 100, but it felt ok. I don't think I will be doing many personal records while it is hot, as my energy is a little sapped. Still, good to be out. Ciao.

Another beautiful road here in Tuscany on the way to Carmignano.
On the way to Carmignano - can you see the heat shimmering?
