Couch Classic Challenge - sunshine, cycling and stunning scenery

After an early start, the team set off to embark on another day of sunshine, stunning scenery and lots of cycling.

Today the team had a choice of two routes, some of the riders teams passed through the small town of Colle di Val d’Elsa, and the others crossed the natural reserve of Tatti to the medieval town of Casole.  The teams joined up again as they journeyed to the Monastic settlement of Abbadia Isola, a hidden gem of Tuscany.

After cycling a total of 71.5km, and plenty of climbing again, the team spent the night in the medieval village of Monteriggioni at the Borgo San Luigi Palace. The hotel’s restaurant is renowned for ample food choices and fine wines.  After all of that cycling, the teams definitely deserve this.

Only one more day of cycling to go!
