In Panzano, we had cafe, then discussed the remainder of the day. 4 of us were game for a longer tour to Castellina, a slight surprise, as Luca and I had discussed this at the beginning, and we thought it would be the two of us. Nicola, a Canadian woman from Revelstoke, who I have been riding with semi often, is quite strong, and really surprised Luca in particular. His english is quite good, and he said at the top of all the climbs, "You are superwoman!" Anyway, simply a very nice tour, a classic here, and good weather, although a little cloudy / overcast, good company, just a great day. Sweet. Next, I watch the Tirenno / Adriatico on Italian TV. La bella vita. (The good life). 106.2 kilometers in 4:11 to average 25.4 kph with 1339 meters climbed.
The group from the team this morning in Panzano, after cafe, but before we split into two groups. Luigi, Nicola, Luca and I went on a longer tour to Castellina.
