Day 2 - Mugello race track and the Tuscan Apenines

Off on our second day we go towards the north, the more mountainous and curvy area of the region, to the race tracks, new and old, with a lucky visit to the paddocks as they were open. What a lush day for riding!

Cappuccino for breakfast to start the day!

Day 3 - Siena and Radda in Chianti

Tiday we retake the starda Chiantigiana all the way to Siena and on our way back we get to visit the old town of Rada for a walk and a well deserved coffee.

Day 4 - Arezzo and the Consuma Pass

A very narrow street takes us up to an overlook of Florence and straight towards the Consuma Pass. The highest pass of the tour. From there, the road takes us to Arezzo for a quick visit of the town. A town, known for it's jewelers, making up to a third of Italy's produxe!

Mike: "Harald, since you are the tallest, can you put the picture up?"
Harald: " Sure, where?"
Mike: "..."
Mike: "at the top!"
