Bike ride! Sep 6

3Zve been walking a lot, which has been great, but not getting much exercise save for one jog at the castle0 So the prospect of a bike ride through the Italian countryside near ?lorence was exciting – and the ride lived up to it’s expectations!

We didn’t go that far – just 12 miles – but it was gorgeous and included a stop at the Machiavelli estate and winery. My Dad would have loved that part Obut not the bike ride!) – and I would say that the end certainly justified the means – which included wine tasting, lunch (porcini pasta and homemade tiramisu), and a pretty ride to the finish.

We ended the day with another ome cooked meal (pasta, courtesy of Puja’s cooking expertise) and a bottle (or more!) of Chianti Classico!
