Today was mostly about getting ready for our trip to the Dolomites, for which we leave tomorrow. We had a nice dinner party for 8 last night, and I was not in bed ready to sleep until after 1am, so I was a little sluggish as well. So, a short tour to the rescue. The more I feel like I don't have the energy, the more a tour gives me energy. Today, I once again planned the tour around water availability, but had a super nice tour. I climbed both Vincigliata and Monteloro, which are two of my favorites close to home. Not too hot, high around 93 F, with a nice breeze. Relatively short distance of 43.7 kilometers in a slow 2:23, but with 924 meters of climbing. That will shake out the cobwebs. Ciao a tutti!
I liked the iconic cypress trees on the road above Monteloro.
