Tuscany 4 Night Cycling Package

Enjoy 4-nights in the cycling paradise of Tuscany. Our break includes 2-nights in charming Chianti and 2-nights in Lucca. With seemingly endless empty roads, scenic views and incredible food, there is no question as to why pro and amateur cyclists flock here.

The area hosts the annual Strade Bianche event, which despite its recent introduction has gained a large level of prestige. We will conquer the best areas of this route on the 3rd day of our Tuscany package.

Our small and social groups will ride approximately 100km per day, over multiple hills at a comfortable pace. Allowing riders to chat and embrace the La Dolce Vita atmosphere.
