WHAT’S THE WEATHER

AREA
INFORMATION

If there is a better cycling experience than riding through Tuscany then we haven't found it yet. Explore the medieval fortified towns of San Giminano and Montepulciano, sip cappuccino in a Chianti town square and roll through the endless olive groves and vineyards.

Cypress trees will line your routes and under the warm Tuscan sunshine life's daily stresses just melt away. 

Weather
INFORMATION

Tuscany can be visited from early March or April all the way through to November. The weather can be cooler in the Spring and Autumn which can make for great cycling conditions. The height of summer is particularly hot but is great for lazy days on the bike soaking up everything Tuscany has to offer.

PACKAGE DETAILS MORE INFORMATION

Your accommodation will be in quiet villas and agriturismos, expertly picked for their tranquility and surroundings. 
You will be met and collected at Pisa or Florence airport before being whisked away to the hotel in Florence. On you final day, you will be taken back to the airport.  
Your trip will be bed and breakfast but we can upgrade you to half board if you prefer. Please just let our cycling experience team know when you enquire.  
The holiday is a self guided holiday allowing you to explore Tuscany at your own pace. We know the area very well and have put together some recommended routes in GPX format which allows you to download these to most GPS enabled devices, and with certain software, to your smartphone. These will be sent to you once you have booked your holiday with Love Velo and each file will be titled with a short description of the ride and the distance. If you would like to see the profile of each route, we recommend that you download the files before your holiday and open them with a GPS viewer. If you would like guiding instead, please just ask our cycle experience team.  
If you choose not to have a guide, you will want to know that your bike is in great condition and that you won’t have any mechanical problems during your ride. Our bikes are extremely well serviced and maintained but in the very unlikely event there is a mechanical issue with the bike (not including basic maintenance such as slipped chains or punctures), we will provide you with an emergency number for someone to come out and repair or replace your bike.  
The bike we will provide you with is a fabulous hybrid bicycle, perfect for exploring the Tuscan countryside. If you would like a road bike, please ask as we can provide these as well.  
Your bike will come equipped with essential tools for you to repair a puncture, replace an inner tube or fix a slipped chain.  
Your bags will be collected each morning and taken from your accommodation to the next night’s accommodation. We suggest you keep a day bag with you for all your essentials. 
Travel to Pisa or Florence is not included but please ask our cycling experience team if you would like us to book flights for you.   
We consider travel insurance to be essential. Accordingly, it is a condition of making a booking through us that you have suitable insurance cover for the booking you have made and any activities which you expect to take part in. This insurance as a minimum should cover cancellation, baggage loss, accidents and health issues while you are away. We also recommend that you take your policy details with you when you travel. Please ask our cycling experience team if you would like us to arrange travel insurance for you.   
Bicycle helmet hire is not included in the price but we can include this for you at a very small charge. Love Velo recommends the use of a bicycle helmet on all rides. Please click here for advice on wearing helmets from our partner, British Cycling.
