You'll pedal quiet back roads around Florence, Chianti, Siena, Val d'Orcia and elsewhere. Personalized service with pick up and drop off at or near your hotel. All fitness/skill levels and fully van-supported. Several rides to choose from for varied interests, including wine and olive oil tasting, gelato tasting, historic castles and off-the-beaten path medieval villages. First-rate equipment (and electric bikes too!). Ask about our new cooking class ride for foodies! Florentine Marco Vignoli, a former bicycle racer, founded I Bike Tuscany. His wish is to share with you his passion for amazing scenery, adventure, great food and wine and, of course, biking. It's his belief there is no better or more exciting way to experience the singularly beautiful region of his homeland than from the seat of a "bicicletta," and so has worked hard to create some very special and unique itineraries that we're sure will have you believing the same. We look forward to your joining us for a day (or trip) you'll keep in your heart, take home with you and never forget. « less

Hi Elizabeth, My first day back in the office I wanted to tell you that the Trip with Paula was the highlight of our Italian Week. My Sister, Niece and I were completely spoiled by Paula. She took care of everything, including rain ponchos when we had a brief burst of rain. The route was beautiful and we have some... More

I took 6 American high school kids to Italy at the beginning of June and while we were in Tuscany we did a ride with Marco and two of his outstanding guides. The 17 miles kicked our butts (I was only able to do 16 of the 17 miles) but it was an awesome feeling when we finished! When we... More

Marco is a fantastic tour guide and this ride was amazing! This is a very laid back ride - all downhill - that's perfect for people who don't bike all the time. The area was beautiful! The tour also includes a gelato making demonstration that was very fun and tasty! Also Marco showed us two beautiful Tuscan towns - Castellina... More

We arranged for a private day-long bike tour in the Chianti countryside with Marco, the company's owner. The day was amazing and well put together. In addition to an exciting and safe journey, which was created based upon our interest in locations to visit, Marco provided options for specific route directions we may want to take. Excellent wine tasting and... More

Amazing! We did the Florence to Siena ride with Marco and Jodi. They were absolutely fabulous. The bike ride was exhilarating and beautiful. But, in addition to the great ride, Marco and Jodi introduced us to the Tuscan area through visits to local villages, winery tours with tastings, and an afternoon in the beautiful city of Siena. It was a... More

We had a great day with Marco and his crew! He custom created a 15 mile ride for a group of 8 of us. It was a great ride followed by a wonderful lunch and then a wine tasting. We started with a lot of downhill riding so we thought we had it - no problem. But then came the... More

Wow! We did the wine ride with Elizabeth in Tuscany and had the absolute best time. We were a group of three and ended up being the only ones in the group. Our private tour through the Chianti wine region was spectacular. Everything was planned for us and we got to sit back, ride and drink. Elizabeth knew so much... More

Where do I start!? My husband and I booked the Chianti 2 single day ride a couple of months prior to our honeymoon in Italy based on Tripadvisor reviews. To say we weren't disappointed is an understatement of the century. We started our tour off in Radda in Chianti. I was a bit nervous as I had not spent much... More

My wife and I had the the most memorable experience of our anniversary trip with Marco in Chianti! Prior to our arrival to Italy, Marco provided us with clear communication about the details of the tour. We were picked up very close to our hotel, on time and transferred to the starting point in a comfortable and clean vehicle. After... More

This 'Chianti 1' cycling trip was the absolute highlight of our recent trip to Florence and fantastic value for money. You require a reasonable level of fitness and cycling experience for this ride, but are rewarded with stunning scenery, wonderful romantic small villages and quiet roads and tracks. We loved every minute and Elizabeth our wonderful host was always on... More
