Welcome to the bike trip combining fantastic moderate bike rides and cooking lessons, special tasting: olive oil, wine and cheese.
La  cucina Toscana – simplicity in its purest form.

Tuscany cooks take advantage of the freshest seasonal products and tamper with their natural state as little as possible. The cooking and the cycling aspects will please anyone who has a strong interest in one or both of these great passions.

Be aware that in Italy a genuine  meal can tell the story of local culture.

A variety of bike rides pursuits get you deep into some of the world’s most iconic and famous landscapes, while a sampling of food and drink experiences keep your mouth watering as you dig into the real way Tuscan people eat.

Personally, we selected the best region and areas to discover by bike from many points of view – scenic & quiet road, history and art, food & wine; nice lodging.

First of all Tuscany – then our top list is Sardinia, Puglia, Umbria, Piedmont, Mallorca, and Sicily.

When we started we have been pioneers offering so well organized self guided itineraries. Now we are expert, we lived the evolution in technology and popularity, we consider ourselves part of Italian Excellence that makes the world dream.

Gravel biking is the new project, we love it and we think is the best way to skip traffic and enjoy scenery.
