Cycling thru Tuscany

This photo of a vineyard in San Leonino in Chianti was taken while on a cycling trip thru Tuscany in October, 2006. It was a great way to see the countryside because I could stop whenever I wanted... and when I did stop it was so still and quiet. Actually, there were so many lookout points to choose from, that eventually I had to pick the best of the best... otherwise I'd be late for dinner, and I wouldn't want that to happen. So, I ate and drank my way thru wine country without having to worry about gaining weight... biking 35-40 miles a day was enough to burn away enough calories so it was a wash in the end.
