From San Donato, a great descent then the steep short climb followed by the excellent road over to Bombone. What a great road, no traffic, reasonable surface, some steep climbs, some gentle climbs, some descents. At Bombone it is mostly downhill to Rosano, then over the bridge to Pontasieve, then only 3.5 kilometers to the turn off for Monteloro. Always a good climb, and today it was fun. Really nice views, and I always seem to be taking photos here. From the top, above Monteloro, I took the main road back down to Fiesole, then the main road back to Firenze. If it wasn't for a few slow moving cars, it would have been a smoking fast time back to Firenze. Lots of fun on a pretty day. Ciao.
