Cycling Holidays in Tuscany
Tuscany has it all..History, Art, Culture, amazing gastronomy and great wine..plus the added bonus of enjoyable cycling through its varied countryside and medieval places which have hardly changed for over 600 years!!
Its no surprise that Tuscany is so popular and draws people from walkers and cyclists. Its undulating countryside, hilltop medieval towns with rewarding and far reaching views is a satisfying end to great days cycling as your own leisurely pace.
Its a relaxing holiday where you stop for a cappuccino when like, have a relaxing lunch when ever you want, enjoy a wide variety of accommodation from agriturismos’ to fabulous villas and hotels to suit your budget. At night after a day of discovery enjoy a delicious pasta and a glass of wine from one of the many vineyards dotted all over the countryside.
The emphasis is to discover, enjoy and admire Tuscany and all its cultural treasures as you cycle along quiet country roads, some are undulating of course. A new feature in 2014 is the introduction of electric bikes which has proved more and more popular for those who want to enjoy a cycle experience with their partner or friends and still keep fit!
