Our 'Chianti 1' ride was the absolute highlight of our recent trip to Florence -I loved every minute and even Sally, who is not a fan of hills, enjoyed the ride tremendously. It has given her lots of confidence for our cycling holiday in France later this year.
Elizabeth was a fantastic host and made our day perfect -Greve was just lovely (and a great butcher's shop) and the restaurant for lunch was fantastic, especially her wine recommendation!
Many thanks for a great ride in the most perfect of surroundings.
Marco - Dolomites look awesome and I hope to do them within next couple of years (next year might be a grand fondo in Barcelona or a grand fondo going up Ventoux) but definitely have added Dolomites to list and if I do make it back to ride in Italy it will definitely be with you guys!
