Chianti tour for FBB with my first Dutch clients.

Working day today with a Florence by Bike Chianti tour for a nice Dutch family of four.  Really, a very nice day, as they were a very easy family to guide, and with only Nikita having trouble on the climbs, she was happy to accept help from me by pushing her.  This made it work reasonably to make it to Monteoriolo.  The ride up there is a pretty standard ride for me, but it is very nice for visitors who do not want a long or difficult tour.  We stop many times along the way for pictures at Piazza Michaelangelo, cafe in Galluzzo, and multiple breaks as we climb from Galluzzo to Monteoriolo.  The tour of the Villa Monteoriolo and the lunch there is really special.  One of the owners, Eleanora, does the tour, cooks the excellent lunch, and is in general a great hostess.  It make the day quite special for the participants.  We returned through Vacciano and Cinque Vie, then through the centro to return to the shop.  The 16 year old boy, Mattias, told me after we returned that he wanted to thank me for one of the most memorable days of his life.  That makes it all worth it.  Tomorrow morning a faster and harder ride with the team.  Ciao.
