... then we went right into another climb at 5 percent for 3 and 1/2 kilometers! Got us warmed up I have to say! :-). So then the route was up into wonderful little towns (often pretty steep up,) with a little flat road here and there and some lovely downs! This ride was very pretty - if different from the others we have done. Lots of vineyards, of course, but also some little farms, an occasional cow or horse munching on hay, some beautiful churches - lots of cool ...
