The forecast said
light rain and it was drizzling. We were tempted to
take the train to Florence but decided to risk cycling
the 60km to Montevarchi before catching it.
The gamble seemed to be paying off in the morning as
the weather cleared, but after lunch and going through
the Chianti hills the rain set in. There is a 15km downhill
cruise from the top of the range into Montevarchi and
we arrived at the station wet and shivering.
