I was quite pleased when we reached Vallombrosa ;-)

Note how my bike was now quite recovered and trying to climb the banking!

(and no, I didn't catch the helmet!)

Resting on the idyllic road between Vallembrosa and Consuma - through the Vallembrosa Nature Reserve.
Cool and shady (the road, not me).

The summit - 'Passo della Consuma' - 1050m.  Worth every bead of sweat.
