I got dusty today on the ‘strade bianche di Toscana’, Tuscany’s white roads, near Siena. The ride from Volterra to here yesterday made the list of my top rides ever, a unique combination of stunning places and perfectly designed curves along the way. I couldn’t have imagined that the route today would be even better, but it was.
The plan was to leave Siena and ride the L’Eroica’ loop, the same track of the world-famous vintage bicycle event that takes place here every October. The full course is 209 km long, and most of it is on the white roads. The views are indescribable, and so are the tracks. Mission accomplished, and another favorite ride added to a list that is growing every day around here.
I can’t wait to finish the whole itinerary in the next few days and share this great feeling with fellow tour riders next year.
