From Vaglia, on the main road to San Piero a Pieve, then to the cut off for Sant Agata. I really like the ride here, and it is one of the reasons I do this ride. I had a nice stop in Sant Agata, and it was good to see the cafe open. After a machiato, back on the bike, over to Galliano, then to another main road, before turning off to ride another favorite through Bosco ai Frati to San Piero a Sieve. From there, main road to get to the climb to croce alle Vetta, then the very nice descent to Firenze through Caldine and Pian de Mugnone. Excellent ride - 85.2 km in 3:47 for an average speed of 22.5 kph with 1343 meters climbed. Ciao.
Nice not to be thinking about the 20,000 anymore.
The town of Sant Agata, where I stop for a cafe, and usually a
pastry, but today, cafe machiato only.
There are hills, some of them pretty big all around the valley
that Sant Agata is in. This view is back toward where I will
climb eventually back to Florence.
A view on the way from Sant Agata to Galliano. So green
A view of one of may favorite roads between Bosco ai Frati
and San Piero a Sieve. Che bella!
