Discover two different locations: Vinci’s hills and Pistoia mountains!
Did you know that around Florence there’s a 2000m high mountain, the Abetone, providing a perfect view over one of the most beautiful landscapes that you can image? We will let you discover those little secrets of the Tuscan surroundings.
The Explorer bike travel will take you through Vinci and Pistoia. Vinci is a small, yet beautiful village just 20 minutes west of Florence. The Vinci hills are a mix of soft hills and sharp climbs, they are famous for olive trees and vineyards, and it’s unique experience to ride around.
There are many routes, so you will never ride same route twice. The rides will be around 80 to 130 km with the possibility to change the route according to your wishes.
In January 2016, Pistoia was proclaimed the Italian capital for Culture 2017. The city and the mountain landscapes are a jewel of Tuscany that has yet to be discovered. The longest climb measures more than 48 km. Pistoia’s hills are full of small villages, where you can sit at a bar talking with the locals. You will have a special and not touristic feeling.
We will select the best accommodation for you and your team members. After 2 nights in Vinci we will move on to the next location, so you will see more of Tuscany. We will take care of your luggage transfer during this 4 nights and 5 days of cycling.
Francesco or Claudia will personally go by bike with you to make sure you will see the best spots of Tuscany, or a support car can follow you. For the routes we will also give you a GPS device. You can also choose to download the routes on your own GPS device.
Besides the cycling tours we can arrange everything you wish for on your holiday. A city trip to Florence, a guided tour, a wine tasting… just let us know what you’d like to do! We will do our best to make your bike holiday a perfect mix between sports and relaxing.
