The 4th day - and the rally starts - off to La Spezia.
The 5th day - it rained, but I went riding anyway.
The 6th day - and onto St Gimignano.
The 7th day - and the Hornet makes a new friend, the Liberty.
The 8th day - and we 'do' Siena and then onto Cortona.
My 9th day - wet Cortona and surrounds.
My 10th day - from Cortona to Fiesole.
My 11th day - a random wander around Florence and a gentle bimble afterwards.
My 12th day - Lunch somewhere - and Cascina to follow.
My 13th day - Riding for the ride. Bliss.
The 14th day and the end of the rally proper.
The 15th day and things have come to a pretty pass.
