TOSCANA - ITALY

Dusty roads and rolling countryside – Tuscany and the rest of Italy is a dream to ride. Road cyclists should be adding this Italian gem to their hit list. After all, if it's good enough for the pro's then it's good enough for us! Pedal the same routes that are used in the Strade Bianche and discover why we're mad about Italy.

Weather

Boasting warm and mild weather all year round, Italy really is a dreamy destination. The height of summer can get too hot for some in the midday sun. So if you prefer slightly cooler temperatures, perhaps book for spring or autumn dates for a more comfortable ride.

Terrain

Dusty, hilly, and rolling. The roads run beautifully through Italy's interior with tough climbs and fun descents to tackle. Hot summer days really do kick up the dust. Don't forget your glasses and a face covering if you are normally at the back of the peloton!

Culture

Warm and welcoming. Italian hospitality is famous across the globe. Be prepared to be blown away by hearty food and rich flavours, incredible wines, and the all important family feeling that runs throughout the region. Tuscany will leave an imprint on you after your visit.
