Good decision, as just after Monteoriolo, Todd was feeling shaky, and after a little spill, decided to return via taxi. It was a little interesting to get a taxi up there and communicate that they needed to take a bike as well as a person, but it all worked out. Todd was totally fine with it as was Scott. Probably a good decision, as you definitely don't want someone going past the comfort zone and risking injury. Scott and I then rode back through San Gersole and returned to the shop. The skies cleared as we returned, and we did not see any rain after lunch, although we certainly had some on the way up there. Ciao a tutti!

weather actually materialized in around 20 minutes. A little wet!

As the skies cleared, the views opened up. This is from the
descent to Vacciano, looking East.
