We got your cards, we got your letters and we felt your pain when the only thing holding some of you back was your fear of the hills (however breathtaking they may be). But we are thrilled to say, "no more!" Concern for these cypress and olive tree-covered beauties is a thing of the past on this ride thanks to our brand new, state-of-the-art 7 speed e-bikes.
You will now glide nearly effortlessly through the rolling countryside on the hills of Tuscany, barely breaking a sweat as you simply relax and enjoy the scenery. Of course you'll still have to pedal, but trust us, it'll be MUCH easier. And did we mention they're a blast to ride? And just so utterly cool? And that you’ll still be getting exercise, burning calories, etc? Which brings us to our next point: for those who prefer the old-fashioned way, and to work a little harder -- no problem. These bikes ride beautifully under your own steam entirely as well. Use the (silent) motor some of the time, all of the time or not at all. Or just for that last little push up the hardest hill. It's up to you, and therein lies the miracle of "Toscana in bicicletta" for all! If you can ride a bike you can do this. Keep your camera always ready as the itinerary includes frequent stops.
There is, however, one caveat: book early as, unlike our other excursions we offer, this is a group tour (still small - max 8 people) and space is limited.
