Sienna to Villa Rosa (Lucarelli) Fri May 20

"We're so lucky!"

We rode about 52 km on Friday. The morning we left Sienna was a little cloudy, which had me worried. With only 2 biking days left, I didn't want any more rain! Fortunately the rain held off, and we ended up with another beautiful day for cycling.

First we had to get out of Sienna, which was a challenge again -- getting out of a big city on bicycle is always a challenge. A few busy roads, a lovely downhill, and a dirt road later, and we were cruising into Pianella.


Our route sheet advised us to stop at the grocery in Pianella for picnic supplies. I had a café latte as well, because the ones at the hotel's breakfast were extremely unimpressive.

Our panniers loaded with mozzarella and tomatoes and meatballs, we hit the road again. After a nice 13 km, we came to a fork in the road. Our route sheet offered a longer optional ride that Lynn and I had been considering. We waved the others on by us while we studied the directions and debated if it was worth it or not.
