We did the standard route to Impruneta, where I reviewed their options. The choose the "hard core" option, which goes to La Panca, which I was kind of planning anyway, so I rode with them to La Panca. After we hooked up with the road to Passo de Sugame, I left them and turned down to go to the cut off to Brollo. Excellent descent followed by a very nice cut off road that becomes more enjoyable and easier with every riding. I climbed to Poggio alle Croce, then descended to San Polo, and did the little climb before descending to Grassina. Back through Cinque Vie and back home on the standard route. Really, a very nice ride, and I am sure Ray and Christie will do well on their self guided tour. Tomorrow morning a group of 4 for a "flat", relatively easy ride. Say tuned, we will see how I do with that.
