Saturday with the team - great weather, great tour.
Nice team ride today, and even with it being holiday time, we ended up with 5 for a nice ride. On the way to Montelupo, we picked up a 6th, as we caught Moreno who then joined us for most of the ride. He is still working his way back from a bad injury a year ago, and was going for a shorter ride than we planned, but then joined us and was strong. We rode over to Cerbia then up to Chiesa Nuova together, then Agnese and Moreno returned, while Paolo, Pietro, Lorenzo, and I did a longer tour. Lorenzo wanted to get me more kilometers for my goal, as usually at this time of year, the team rides are shorter. Paolo turned off to return to town through Luiano, leaving three of us riding to Quattro Strade, then down and back to Ferrone, then climbing to Strada to return to Florence. On the way back, Daniele and Luca Durazzi caught us and we rode in together. After today's ride, only 117 kilometers to go, which should mean Monday for the big day of meeting the goal. Ciao a tutti!
As it is Moreno's birthday, we stopped for a cafe in Montelupo.
Here he is with Lorenzo. Buon Compleanno, Moreno - Auguri!
