Let's get back on the bikes and continue towards the north west, following signs for La Pesta on the S.P. 31 "Collacchia", which we follow up to km 60.5 and then turn right onto the S.P. 49 “Accesa” towards Massa Marittima. At km 65, we reach La Pesta and the Accesa Lake, where you can take a nice refreshing dip if you feel like it. The itinerary continues to the small mining village of Fenice Capanne, which developed from the early-mid nineteenth century. Continue uphill with a gradient between 7 and 9%, until you reach the top of the hill at km 77 which is the highest point of one of the best Italian urban landscapes: Massa Marittima, deserving of a thorough visit. Since we are just passing through, we could select just the beautiful Piazza Garibaldi, a kind of open-air theater that's bordered by the most important historical buildings of the city: the majestic Cathedral of San Cerbone, Palazzo del Podestà (seat of the Archaeological Museum), Palazzina dei Conti di Biserno, Palazzo dei Priori, the loggia of Palazzo Malfatti and the Palazzo delle Fonti dell'Abbondanza. From Massa Marittima, take the S.P. 162 towards Siena. After passing the hamlet of Ghirlanda in Pian di Mucini, continue to the right and cycle uphill for about 6 km and then descend towards the bridge that passes near the village of Prata, visible on the left. After about 2 km, turn right onto the S.P. 54 “Cerro Balestro” towards Tatti, first pedaling uphill, then downhill to the village which is reached after about 8 km. When you reach the centuries-old castle of Tatti, the track bends to the left towards Sassofortino-Roccatederighi. After 5 km, turn left onto the S.P. 8 "Meleta" following signs for Roccastrada. After about 2 km, you reach Roccatederighi, pass Sassofortino (km 110) and ride on the S.P. 8 for about 3 km, reaching Roccastrada. Continue downhill on the S.P. 157 for about 5 km up to an obvious curve to the right where you take the S.P. 46 “Tollero” following the GT signs indicating Paganico.
