Thumb 74 curves in 6 minutes



I rode in Tuscany (Italy) today, and I made this 6ix minutes film.
It sports no less than 74 curves.
Just to give you a taste of the roads here.

Drool. Living on the prairies, I don't think I've seen 74 curves in my entire riding career.

I know that clip was a bit over 6 minutes, but I counted at least 86 turns...

Beautiful stuff.

74 curves in six minutes means 4.8 seconds between each.
86 in 6:24 gives only 4.4 seconds between the curves.
So your numbers are better than mine

Sir,
I've had a Canadian ADVrider for dinner here tonight. A large dinner, I might add.
Anyway, we did have a good laugh from you comment. He told me "If you only knew how true that might be.".

We drank vermentino di Sardegna, Chianti Riserva, and Muscato d'Asti to comfort us.
And we ate!

Thanks! Yes, close to true. Well, we had home made pizza and a good homebrew apple cider too.
