For us the advantages of individual road cycling are paramount. You decide yourself when to set off, where to take a break and how fast to cycle. In this way you are able to experience Tuscany on your bike in total freedom, without however giving up on the comfort of an organised tour. Very carefully planned cycling tours, with user-friendly routes which include our own signposting and GPS-tracks, luggage service, as well as on-site service and a tour-hotline, are all designed for limitless road cycling enjoyment.
Tour Info and Bike Rental
You can travel individually by car/plane/rail (for the shuttle service see also the “Miscellaneous” section). At the hotel, participants will be welcomed by one of our staff members. There will be an explanation of the tour program and a description of the exact structure of the relevant Giro week. A comprehensive tour map includes all important information in writing. This will be followed by the delivery, setting-up and trial run of the bikes.
Carefully Planned Road Cycling Tours
When selecting and drafting the tour routes, the specific knowledge of local features – which we have as locals – is ideally associated with our long-standing experience as regards road cycle tourism. Scenic attractions, good road conditions, little traffic and possibly a straight route are our main criteria of choice. All the excursions have already been tested by us on road bicycles plenty of times.
All of our tours have their own signposting. It is also possible to use a GPS routing system for navigation during the tours. Cyclists with their own GPS device, after having completed their reservation, will receive these tracks by e-mail. You will receive during the tour-info session a detailed road book, as well as a tour book with maps and other relevant information, including altimetry profile and sightseeing possibilities along the way.
To make sure that you enjoy your road cycling excursions as much as possible, we will transport your luggage safely and on time from one stage to the next.
The partner hotels which we will book for you before the journey, according to your requirements, are mainly three- and four-star accommodation facilities. All hotels will provide safe storage areas for bicycles and a high-pressure floor pump as basis equipment.
On-Site Service and Tour Hotline
After the information meeting at the beginning of the tour, we will always be available throughout the week with one of our staff members as contact person. Otherwise you can reach us on our tour-hotline at all times.
It will be our pleasure to give you further information and advice with regard to your stay in Tuscany.
Airport-Shuttle: on request we can organise airport transfers from Florence, Pisa or Rome to Montecatini Terme or Scansano and back. On request special leg massages can be arranged in our tour hotels.
