We rode into Montelupo, got some water, and discussed options. We decided on my original plan, and headed up the valley to the turn off to climb the little backroad to Montagnana. We continued up the ridge to San Pancrazio, then descended to Ponterotto, where we stopped for some excellent pastries and cafe. The last climb to San Casciano was next, followed by the ridge ride through Chiesa Nuova then down the switchbacks to Galluzzo. We opted for the longer route with less traffic and went on Cinque Vie then over to Piazza Ferrucci, then back home. Really great ride and great job team.
