Tuscany Experience 2019
This event takes place in the beautiful rolling Tuscan countryside. Our aim so to ensure your stay provides you with a wonderfully authentic Italian experience in a beautiful farmhouse setting.
If you are looking for a stress free cycling holiday this may just be the trip for you. We pride ourselves on catering for all your needs during the week, which starts the moment we collect you from the airport. We have access to the most beautiful charming Tuscan Villa where you will be given your own room, and depending on the size of the group, your own apartment.
Rides each day average around 100k which will include plenty of coffee stops along with lunch. There are no time constraints on this trip so we spend all day out on the bikes enjoying what Tuscany has to offer. All the routes are tried and tested so your guides and back up team will ensure you are always on track. Pre-selected Café and Lunch stops are arranged in advance, so there really is no stress when out on the bikes.
We welcome all levels of cyclist, however some cycling experience would be beneficial, the Tuscan landscape can be challenging with it’s undulating terrain. Our back up team will always be on hand with a following vehicle if you wish to remove or add items of clothing, plus if you see any Tuscan produce that takes your fancy we can transport this for you. During your stay we will take you to some fantastic restaurants that are included in the price of the holiday.
Other organised trips include a visit to a local Vineyard for some Wine and Beer tasting. This is not part of a cycle route due to the generous amounts of wine and beer that you end up sampling. This part of the trip is not to be missed!
I can honestly say the Via Rome week in Tuscany far exceeded my expectations. The daily rides were well organised with plenty of coffee and lunch stops often in lovely picturesque mountain top locations. The riding will appeal to everyone from the keen amateur cyclist to the competent club rider with challenging climbs which could be taken either at leisure or attacked if you felt like it! Grant and Gary are professional yet great fun and happy to offer tips on cycling as and when required. The villa was in a stunning location with its own beautiful private pool which was very welcome after a long day in the saddle. In the evenings we were treated to dinner at a local pizzeria, wine tasting and the on last night we visited a stunning agriturisme property where all the food was home grown and cooked. If you love your cycling and want to get fit and enjoy Tuscany then this is not to be missed. I have already booked my ticket for next year.
All transfers are included. Transfer time is 20 minutes from Pisa International airport to the Villa. This is half board accommodation including carefully selected restaurants. We have work stands, cleaning products, a good supply of tools and various spare parts available to ensure your bikes are always running smoothly.

This is a half board accommodation; this will include breakfast, 4 nights out to selected restaurants that you will be transported to, (two of the evenings will also include as much wine as you can drink!).
Two evenings will consist of a BBQ and home cooked meal at the Villa (that will be prepared by the team). Not included is what you purchase when out on rides, although the support vehicle will always have additional drinks on hand.
