    good Tenbury Wells 62 mi 04:37 13.4mph pace

    It was a tad chilly first thing as I headed to the meet at Powick. Jules H was already there and John G turned up almost immediately. We headed over the Teme for Martley and the climb up and over... read more

    good Trumpet 52 mi 03:20 15.6mph pace

    I was a bit late heading out for this one. T storms were forecast. I hoped they wouldn't make it this far west. I took the standard run around the north end of the Hills to loop for Codding... read more

    good Fladbury 58 mi 04:17 13.5mph pace

    Another Attempt 2.06 mi 02:00

    We thought we would try for the summit of Monte Prato Fiorito again after our failed attempt last time. This time we took the car to where we got to last time. The map looked to be good this time... read more

    good Tuscany 4 43 mi 05:17 8.1mph pace

    Now the map said there was a road over into the valley near Abetone. It went over a pass quite high up in the hills at about 1700 meters. So I headed up the climb for Montefegatesi and over the r... read more

    good Confusion 4.32 mi 03:00

    The plan was to climb Monte Prato Fiorito, which at 1300 meters (4260 feet), with its steep slopes should be a challenge and give us superb views. We headed out on an obvious path but as we procee... read more

    good Tuscany 3 Villano 31 mi 02:49 11.0mph pace

    Chris's aunt lives at Villano so it had been arranged to visit. I thought it would make a nice ride over. So I dropped to Bagni di Lucca and headed for a 6 mile climb up the ever present hai... read more

    good San Cassiano 6.15 mi 04:00

    Liz and Chris had arrived so we headed off for a walk. Crumbs, Italian maps and footpaths are tricky to follow and find. We navigated as best we could using contours and experience. The found ou... read more

    good Tuscany 2 25 mi 02:43 9.2mph pace

    Mrs 26 was keen to experience my ride of yesterday for herself. So off we went as before. This time we stopped more often for photos and taking in the views. Today's weather was better. Do... read more

    good Tuscany 1 25 mi 02:31 9.9mph pace

    From our village of Longoio I headed straight out onto what turned out to be a 4 mile climb. A big mountain loomed ahead. The wild flowers were stunning with orchids in pride of place. Over the ... read more
