From Montagnana, I continued up along the ridge to San Pancrazio, another favorite road. A sweet descent to Ponterotto, followed by a relatively gentle climb to San Casciano, where I took a gelato break, as I get to know the spots for gelato better in the little outlying towns. From San Casciano, over to Chiesa Nuova, then down the ridge turning for the smokin descent to Scandicci. From there, head down and crank it through the city home. Another great ride with excellent temperatures for riding. Here is the garmin link for more information:

Climbing up to the ridge that takes you to Montagnana, I was surprised
to see these flowers blooming on the side of the road. Che Bella!
I love riding this ridge toward Montagnana. This view is to the
North, with the vines just starting to change colors.
The vines are starting to turn on the way from Montagnana to
San Pancrazio as well. Should be a beautiful few weeks
