Join us for four nights in cycling paradise. We spend two nights in beautiful Lucca, an old walled town close to Pisa, at the start and end of the trip, and two nights in the stunning rolling terrain with the famous strade bianche (white roads) of Chianti, one of the World's most picturesque regions, where the only thing to rival the quality of the food is the quality of the riding. Discover why this region is a playground for pro cyclists and amateurs alike, with mile upon mile of empty roads, amazing views and wonderful food!

Our social, small group weekenders to Tuscany include approx 100km per day, with a couple of nice hills, but ridden at a pace where we can chat with our fellow riders, and soak up the atmosphere and beauty of this unforgettable place.
