Really nice tour today with a route through Gavinana, Grassina, Strada, La Panca, Passo de Sugame, Greve, Panzano, La Piazza, San Donato in Poggio, Sambuca, San Casciano, Chiesanuova, Scandicci and back home to Firenze. 100.8 kilometers in 4:50 to average 20.8 kph with 1509 meters of climbing. Sweet!
I stopped to wait for Kay with Don by this colorful villa on the
road from Grassina to Strada. I have ridden past countless times,
but never stopped to take a photo. It is beautiful and there are
benefits to waiting for others.
Kay riding past a colorful villa around Ugolino.
Don posed with the big wicker wine bottle in the
main piazza in Panzano, waiting for Kay.
I really liked the color and texture of the stone and the many
shapes in the architecture of this villa, while waiting for Don
and Kay just past La Piazza.
Don and Kay enjoying gelato at B-Ice, a great gelateria here
in Florence on a little detour on the way home. I had some too.
