Biking in Southern Tuscany: Arezzo and its country.
Arezzo has a great feeling with the bike! Is told that Leonardo da Vinci was in these countries when designing the first bicycle and painting La Gioconda. From then on a lot of cycling champions bore here and trained in our roads.
So you can find whatever you’re searching ( except Alps, risk, confusion and dangerous spots).

We are going to suggest some tours (with the guide or not) for trained people and with various grade of difficulty ( from 1 to 5 ), split in ON-ROADS,  and COUNTRY-ROADS.
Back roads, scenic landscapes, challenging hills, and Italian cooking create a biker's paradise. Morning rides are 25-35 miles on rolling terrain, with support van and optional loops.

Possibility of Shuttle by van to the vineyards in the afternoon or tour in Balloon. Each tour is modular , can foresee extensions as well as cut and restaurants to better taste the spots.           .

 GITE IN BICICLETTA con accompagnatore:

È una terra perfetta per pedalare, dove le strade non si misurano in chilometri ma in emozioni!

Tra Arezzo e Siena si snoda una miriade di strade che sembrano inventate per chi viaggia nel silenzio; il rumore dei motori si ode raramente pedalare su queste strade significa immergersi completamente nella pace e nella tranquillità di un paesaggio intergo dove si viaggia in compagnia degli elementi. Ovunque si avverte la presenza discreta dell’uomo che qui ha saputo creare capolavori di arte e squisiti gusti in cucina,insieme all’anima selvaggia di un ambiente rimasto autentico e immutato nei secoli.

La bicicletta è sicuramente il mezzo che più di ogni altro esalta il contatto con la natura e con l’uomo, e non è nemmeno difficile riuscire ad incontrare animali selvatici;ma le nostre terre costituiscono anche un luogo lontano , un’esotica via di fuga e due passi da casa!

Numerose sono le possibiltà offerte dal nostro territorio, tra queste segnaliamo alcuni percorsi che sono davvero entusiasmanti e adatti a tutti quelli che hanno un minimo di dimestichezza con la bici e di allenamento. Le bici possono essere anche fornite da noi previa prenotazione con una settimana di anticipo. E’ previsto il trasfer con van fino all’inizio della tappa
(massimo 40 minuti)
