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.

We had 5 excellent days of gravel riding (self guided Tuscany tour). The routes that Luigi provided us were a good mix of paved and gravel, and of course hills! The bikes (Canyon Grizl) were very nice and the luggage was always waiting for us at the next hotel. Luigi was accomodating, modifying the routes based on my requests. I would definitely recommend doing a trip with this company.

The route was wonderful, with amazing scenery and history at every turn. Our guides, Sarah and Gigi were the best. They are both very accomplished and personable riders, provided interesting history of Tuscany during the tour, and emphasied safe riding while keeping everyone within sight. They are also great dinner companions!

Luigi and BikeRiding Tuscany were an absolute pleasure to deal with. The bike was in incredible condition, delivered to my hotel and Luigi even arranged for a local mechanic to help with a small mechanical issue after my first ride. The experience from start to finish was brilliant. The communication friendly and quick. Simona was equally helpful on collection of the bicycle. I would love to join Luigi for a cycle tour as he seems very knowledgeable about the area and a good rider. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to explore Tuscany or Siena.

Exceptional self guided tour. I highly recommend for all levels (but especially for a road cyclist). This is the tour company to book with! Bikes - excellent high end bikes. I rode a Canyon Ultimate CF SL Ultegra - light and fast and we'll tuned with new tires. My wife road the e-mountain bike which she really enjoyed. Routes - beautiful. We did 50-60km a day. Rapolano de Terme, Pienza, Montalcino, Siena and Castellini in Chianti. Varied terrain, vineyards, great climbs and beautiful medieval towns. Extremely well thought out. All on quiet roads. Hotels - all 3 and 4 stars with loads of character. The ones with pools were our favourites. All of the hotels were able to let us check in very early (it was hot so we rode as early as we could manage). Hotels all came with breakfast. Really great. Service - Luigi was a gem. Easy to contact, quick to communicate (before we came and during the tour) and passionate about cycling. He gave us a lot of great recommendations to help maximize our tour. I cannot say enough positive things about this trip and Bike Riding Tuscany. This was truly memorable. Highly recommended.

I was on a trip around the world and stopped in Italy. A friend recommended BikeRidingTuscany to me for an unforgettable experience and it didn’t let down. They planned a custom 1 day gravel ride for me that took us from Rapolano Terme to Sienna and back. The pace was perfect and they were gracious with any requests for breaks or stops for water/food. I enjoyed myself so much that I extended my stay to do a run on the gravel amongst the beautiful sunflowers. If you’re adventurous, and seeking some safe fun riding, this is your team
