Compito, looking up the hills, at the start of the climb to Monte Serra - which is shrouded in cloud somewhere to the left of the picture. An 870m odd climb, if you go all the way to the radio masts. 8%+ most of the way, with a series of steep switchbacks about 3/4 of the way.
Near the Monte Serra peak, looking toward Pisa, I think.
Looking down toward the eastern outskirts of Pisa.
Going back down the road from Monte Serra, looking north-east.
View of a radio mast on top of Monte Serra. Bicycle racers' names painted on the road by fans. Think I saw "Contador" in very faded paint at one place.
The suspension foot-bridge to Mammiano Basso
Looking toward Piteglio. Tuscany is just full of hill-top, mediæval towns like this.
Views along the road down to Bagni di Lucca
Ponte della Maddalena, between Borgo a Mozzano and Chifenti
Monte Serra, seen from the unpaved "strade bianche" (sic?) that Garmin decided to send me down, for some impromptu cyclo-crossing on my rental, skinny-tyred race bike.
A last look at Monte Serra and its radio masts.
