Is This Trip For Me?

This is a 4 night break riding from the sandy beaches of Emilia Romagna to the Tuscan Coast across Italy’s stunning middle. This small group raid is led by our expert guides & support vehicles. We all ride together on the flats and at our own pace on the climbs. Afternoons are spent relaxing with a couple of beers and some amazing local food.

Tour Highlights

Tour Highlights

  • Ride the rolling hills of the Nove Colli: Our ride starts in beautiful Emilia Romagna, home of the popular Nove Colli. We take on two of the hills from this sportive on the training roads of Marco Pantani.

  • The famous Tuscan white roads: Nearly all of this ride is over smooth tarmac but being in Tuscany we can't resist a short spin on the strade bianche. The gravel roads here are legendary due to L'Eroica and the new classic season starting pro race.

  • The World's Best Food!: Emilia Romagna & Tuscany both claim to be the food capitals of Italy, and therefore the world. Fill your boots on guilt free calories and judge for yourself which region is the best.

Is there a better long weekend of riding than this? Starting on the beach in Cattolica on the Adriatic, we ride east into the heart of Emilia Romagna taking in some of the climbs of the Nove Colli before heading to Tuscany with some gravel roads, rolling hills and sleepy hilltop villages. We finish on Saturday evening on the Tuscan coast in time to watch the sunset with a glass of prosecco. A perfect long weekend of riding.
