HIGHLIGHTS

We have selected some of the best routes, offering a mix of all terrains. Just keep in mind that Tuscany is not flat! 

The Strade Bianche (gravel roads!) are different but still enjoyable on a regular road bike, requiring double attention especially on the downhills.

Some of the climbs can be challenging but generally for very short distance. Roads will be very in good condition with very light traffic. Only with many cyclists always around!

 YOUR 

 RIDE 

WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?

The experience is built for all riders able to ride for 3-5 hours. This is not a race or high intensity riding, This is a true cycling adventure across one of the most picturesque countries in the world. During the first days we will ride as a group on the rolling terrain and as individuals or small groups on the short climbs, so that everyone will enjoy the ride. On top of each major climb we will regroup to celebrate and refill our bottles, and then enjoy the descent together. As a team, we’ll support each other during the ride and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy!
