Story by Doug Thomson from Woodstock, United Kingdom, submitted on 14/08/2013
A really enjoyable climb from Pieve di Compito and then descent to Buti. Staying near Marlia I had 20km or so to warm up in the valley and then head up the hill. From Pieve di Compito is a narrower ascent, mostly shaded, at 8am only one car passed me and no other cyclists spotted on this side. The descent to Buti is wider and a shallower gradient (from Pieve the Garmin hovered around 9% most of the way, with a couple of ramps up to 15%) so therefore quite fast; be warned the surface on the lower half towards Buti is very rough indeed. Overall a really beautiful climb with stunning views to the Maremma, Lucca and Pisa.

A very nice climb. If you take the local roads from Lucca to Pieve di Compito, you have a warming up of some 20km. And then the real fun starts. The first km is the easiest one. Then the average gradient goes up to 9-11 percent. Nearly no traffic and very beautiful view at the top. Starting from Buti, the way is a bit longer and less steep (most of the time between 7-8 percent).

Its possible to climb it 3-ways: from Calci, Pieve di Compito and from Buti. I did the last two, and that one from P.di C. is the nicest one. A few hard parts, but a beautiful scene and less traffic. The one from Buti is also beautiful, but in the weekends u have more traffic over there. Tip: form Buti is the southside, form P.diC. is East/North-East, so the temperature is lower.

We were holidaying near the bottom of Monte Serra and I had a Bike Friday Pocket Rocket with me. I rode up at 6am in the morning and it was delightful with only one car on the whole route. The road is a lovely surface and the gradient is pretty consistent most of the way with nothing extraordinary, just pretty steady. There are 3 or 4 convenient water springs on the way up. Near the top there is a cafe, but it was closed when I got there. The final section is up to the secure area where there are numerous aerials and such like. Coming down you can either re-trace of circle round the other side. A fine climb.
