I came up with a number of minor changes, and will check into a rental car, which should allow me to complete the remaining work in one day. Those cars really can put in mileage faster than a bike, and I can stop and make notes easier. Oh well, I tried it and enjoyed it today. Although it was only around 40 when I left, and I don't think it got above 50, the sun was shining all day, the riding and scenery was spectacular, and I was getting paid, at least a little, for riding in this. What a treat. I basically wandered around Chianti, checking the routes. Around 6 hours elapsed time, though, so kind of a long day. 102.9 kilometers in 4:44 for an average of 21.7 kph with 1366 meters of climbing. Great, beautiful day.
Here are three views above Chiocchio. I love the scenic climb
here, and what a beautiful day today, even if it was a little chilly.
Love the snow emphasizing Monte Sechetti in the background.
It looks like riding up there should wait.
Vineyards and the road below descending from Passo de Sugame,
a little over half way through the day.
