Today was Arts last day riding with me and he was great to ride with and I really appreciate the business. I had done business with Art in my former life and we were acquaintances through Richard Melnick, who left Friday morning. Art and his wife, Mindy and another couple were among my first clients in my first cycling season here, and I really appreciate both the faith he had in me the first trip and the fact that he returned two years later for a "guys" trip. Hope to see him again here in two more years. I love the new friendship that is blossoming as we spend more time together. Thanks for "Riding with Cosimo".
Ciao, Here is the garmin link for the ride.
Last day with Art - Pinone, Montelupo, Montagnana, La Ripa, Firenze by ridingwithcosimo at Garmin Connect - Details
Art is enjoying the incredible views from the road
to Pinone, above Carmignano.
Here, Art is finishing the hard part of the climb to the ridge
that leads to Montagnana.
Art, really enjoying our last day out in pretty perfect conditions.
The sky was so clear and the landscape so beautiful, I had
to take a picture on a break on the way up to Chiesa Nuova.
