Optional hill climb from Vinci into the hills and St. Baranto . About 7 miles approx 4% grade category 4 apparently a training route for Italian bike teams . Awesome ride steadily clmbing through vineyards and olive groves and tiny villages and villas with a view out into the plains . Just awesome . At the top was a bar ( beer and lunch ) plus a small church and a biking memorial . Stop for gelato before a fast sweet ride downhill back to Vinci
Best scenic ride of my life !
Just 5 of us out of the VBT group of 20 did it . Toured Leonardo Da Vinci museum after and got taxi back to hotel for long soak in hot spring spa
