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.
