Don't miss to discover the Chianti! We'll pick you up in Florence, or at your B&B if you ask for it, and bring you by car to the starting point in Chianti area. We'll provide professional bikes and helmets for a perfect ride. I will choose the best course for you according to your desires and needs, providing extra equipment if needed, like bike trailers, child seats, e-bikes. During the ride I will explain everything about the surroundings and give you some tips for a better biking experience. You'll ride through vineyards and olive groves, on gravel paths or single-tracks if you like, into forests and between fields. Your wheels'll roll into a painting made by nature, with you in the typical Tuscan backgruond landscape. Finally we will finish the ride in an authentic family farm, visiting the cellars, surrounded by the unmistakable smell of the old barrels, where you'll discover how they produce the world famous Chianti Classico wine. Then wine/food tasting in the farm, with different blends of wines, bruschetta, extra-virgin olive oil, cheese, cured meat, prosciutto. On demand, pasta or other food (not included) Then way back to Florence by van. For out of calendar dates ask us.
Hi, this is Sam, born and bread in Florence, biker and adventurer for a lifetime and guide since 2013. Because of my deep knowledge in Tuscan territory, Florence city and its backcountry, my 20 years biking and bike travelling expertise, I can manage extreme bike adventures, but I normally organize bike trips in Tuscany to discover the country, or daily rides in Florence and Chianti area. I leaded thousands of guests in my bike tours, through the Chianti to visit farms and have super food/wine tastings, or in Florence city center to see the iconic spots and unveiling the hidden places, telling stories about the city. I can guide you discovering Leonardo da Vinci birthplace, Medici's villas, the most ancient and beautiful castles, the National Parks, climbing the highest peaks on the Great Apennine Excursion route, camping into the wild.
