Gravel bike on the Eroica path 

Gravel bike day trip is an amazing one day bike trip experience leading you through the path of the most famous gravel roads around  Siena. The tour start from Rapolano Terme.

Riding on the  gravel road until the climb to Monte Sante Marie until to Siena or either the Chianti Area .

What is Eroica:

The Eroica Strade Bianche was born in 1997 as a recreational bike race for vintage bikes only.

This event is still held once a year the day after the professional race on the white gravel roads around Siena.

L’Eroica is the name of the most famous  non competitive vintage bike race.

A race inspired by classic cycling in black and white.

By convention the year 1987 is the borderline between classical cycling and modernity.

The Eroica events is only for Heroic Bicycles or Vintage Style Bicycles.

For Heroic Bikes (or Vintage Bicycles ) we mean all road racing bikes built until 1987.

Included both with gearbox and without gearbox, such as those built in the late 1800s or early 1900s.

The white gravel roads

The white gravel roads, characteristic of the tuscan countryside, provide the unique character of the race. They are usually country lanes  called strade bianche or sterrati in Italian, twisting through the hills and vineyards of the Chianti region.

The longest and most arduous sectors are the ones in Lucignano d’Asso (9.5 km) and Asciano (11 km).

Some of the dirt roads are flat, other sections include steep climbs and winding descents, testing riders’ climbing abilities and bike handling skills. Riders who take three Strade Bianche titles have a sector of gravel road named after them.

Fabian Cancellara is the first rider with a stretch named in his honour: sector 8, an 11.5 km section at Monte Sante Marie.

With the modern Gravel bikes you have the opportunity to fully enjoy these roads thanks to their adaptability, versatility and ruggedness that make them the perfect commuter bike, an ideal light touring or audax bike, a great winter training bike, or simply one bike that can tackle any sort of terrain you care to take it along.

We ordered a 6 day self guided private tour for 9 persons in Tuscany. Everything was excellent. We received custom-planned routes, as per our request. The hotels ordered were really nice. But most of all, the support was really at the best level. For example: we had a problem on a Sunday, and Luigi arrived within half an hour with a spare wheel. And the best part: Luigi and Sara were really friendly, almost like a family. I .highly recommend making a trip with bikeridingtuscany. They and Tuscany are really an excellent combination for an unforgateable experience.

I have cycled with many companies all over the world and I can’t recommend these guys enough. Sarah took us on such an awesome ride giving us choices on routes along the way, keeping our pace. Luigi fitted us with nice bikes that had zero issues- we passed many cyclists with flats on the roads but our bikes were well checked and maintained. can’t wait to come back and do it again

My wife and I did a ride with Luigi and Sara and it was absolutely fabulous! The selection of routes -- with a lot of back-road gravel roads -- , top quality gravel bikes, and their friendly and attentive service were all top notch! We would highly recommend riding with them -- we hope to do it again soon!

Wir haben Räder (Canyon Grizl) geliehen und konnten damit die Umgebung von Rapolano Terme erkunden. Die Räder waren in einem Top Zustand! Gigi ist ein toller, freundlicher Mensch, der für den Sport und seine Heimat lebt. Vielen Dank! Wir freuen uns auf die Sattel-Review. ;)

I rented the Canyon Gravel bike for the Strade Bianche and felt I had made the optimal choice. The booking process was very easy, Luigi is extremely kind, knowledgeable and helpful, the bikes are beautiful, perfectly maintained and adjusted to your needs and the price is more than fair compared to competitors. 5/5 stars. I would come back any time.
