  • Experience Tuscany...
  • White roads, the ultimate in gravel road adventure
  • Rolling hills, vineyards, scenery like no other
  • Amazing gastronomy, a feast for all the senses


Our most frequently requested destination, and for good reason. Tuscany is a wonderful region for cycling - in fact it's simply a wonderful region, full stop.

Welcome to a world of rolling hills, vineyards and amazing wine and gastronomy... home to famous races such as the famous Strade Bianchi and Giro d'Italia.

This trip is all about exploring the best roads the region has to offer; from our base in Lucca, through Tuscany, to the heights of the Apennines in the distance.


Thursday 20th June - Day 1: Arrival Day

After arriving at Pisa Airport, you will be met by one of our guides in the arrivals hall. Lucca is a short 1 hour transfer away. Here you will be reunited with your bike that will have been driven down for you.

A couple of hours for a nice lunch, time to settle in and fettle your bike and then we will test the legs with a local ride out through the vineyards.

Friday 21st June - Day 2: Queen Stage

  • Distance: 157km
  • Elevation: 2400m

Today we ride to the Apennine mountains to the home of San Pellegrino water. This ride is essentially split into two. Before lunch you are working hard to make it up to the hills, yet after lunch you are rewarded with a glorious route downhill back through the vineyards.

Dinner in Lucca old town and time to relax with a beer in the evening.

Saturday 22nd June - Day 3

  • Distance: 82km
  • Elevation: 1450m

Today we ride through the heart of Tuscany, enjoying some amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea. The small roads are idyllic and there is even an optional splash of gravel roads and time for some wine tasting on the way home.

Sunday 23rd June - Day 4: Warm Down and Departure

Time for one last local ride to take in the best views in the area. Pieve Santo Stefano, Arsina, and Aquilea are roads that you think the Gods made for riding. There is just time for one last quick lunch, before your transfer to the airport.
