Today, after a very late night last night, I had a meeting, then did some hopefully helpful things at home. Emily was not feeling well, as it was night of lots of food and wine. I was not at my top form either, as lots of rich food and wine can certainly take it out of me and a bed time of after 1:30 is very late for me. So, I knew a ride to blow away the cobwebs from last night would help and motivated to get out on the bike. It of course worked, although I think a nap is calling after posting this. I did a favorite ride of around 2-1/2 hours up Via Carota to Osteria Nuova, then up to San Donato, down to Cellai, up / over to Bombone, then down to Rosano. Back into town through Nave a Rovezzano and home. 53.4 kilometers in 2:22 with 644 meters of climbing.
