About
We provide everything you need for an unforgettable self guided and roadside assisted electric bike tour through the majestic Tuscan countryside surrounding Florence. With the freedom to explore at your own pace and boosted by our top quality e-bikes, you'll meander your way through cypress tree forests, olive groves and vineyards, little villages and hamlets with their ancient churches, monasteries, amphitheatres and delicious restaurants! You can sample the EV olive oils and locally produced wines, meet the owners of an organic Chianti vineyard and have the option to cool off in their outdoor swimming pool. Our route utilises the cycle path network to get you out onto the quieter country roads quickly and on the way back the cycle path route traverses the River Arno and up to Piazzale Michelangelo for great views of the city up close. The map works offline on your phone, we provide phone holders for the bikes and we are always on hand to make sure your ride goes smoothly.

What a great way to see Florence and surrounding area! Know that this isn't a guided tour, but rather a self-paced one where you follow the downloaded guide map on your phone. The instructions provided made it straightforward to download and use. To make the ride even more trouble free, the owner John, walks through the route pre-ride and shows views of the key landmarks you need to find and be aware of to navigate through the route. Very helpful. While there is some in-city riding, it never felt dangerous and once you away for city center, and somewhat outside the city, the riding is completely stress free and the views and scenery are great, especially the forest areas and the far portion of the ride that offers incredible elevated views of the city. There are definitely some steep hills, but the e-bikes make easy work of that, especially in "turbo" power mode. The winery was a great stop and offered more great views and some tasty wines. They did not have any more slots for a full tasting the afternoon we visited, but we bought a couple of glasses and shared them as an alternative. The last portion of the ride from the winery back to the shop is mostly on designated bike lanes and is easy to navigate. Tour was perfect length where we got a bit of exercise without killing ourselves and got to see the city in a whole different way. Highly recommend this!

This self-guided e-bike tour was a highlight of a recent visit to Florence!

The first thing to know is that you do NOT ride with a guide, you simply download a map, then follow it as you make your way along the route. You can stick with a group, or just ride with yourself, your crew or your partner.

To make the ride easier, John (the owner) takes time to walk through a slide show of each "tricky" step of the route, so that one has a great idea of what's to come before you get on the bike.

The route starts in Florence on semi-well traveled streets, but it never felt dangerous, particularly if one rides a bike often. There are several hills on the route, but the e-bikes make easy work of them!

Along the way you stop at a vineyard where you can purchase wine and snacks, have a chat with the other folks on the tour and take in the amazing views that are surrounding you.

One thing I really appreciated about the tour was the length - it's just long enough that you get to really out out in the hills and see some amazing views, but not TOO long that's difficult (and again, e-bikes are where it's at).

If you want to get out and do your own, unique thing, I highly recommend e-bikesflorence and John!!!

We booked this eBike tour on a friends suggestion, who said it was a highlight of their visit to Florence. They were absolutely right! Florence is a beautiful city and this tour allows you to see many different areas, both city and surrounding countryside, at your own pace. John is great and has made an easy to follow map that will leave you with some great memories and photo opps! Even had a flat tire on the road and he was on it. We were back on the road in no time flat! If you are looking for a unique way to see Florence, away from the crowds, this is a must to book!

Great opportunity to explore Tuscany in a unique way. Definitely recommend this tour to explore beyond Florence and get some exercise. Shop is not well marked with signage, and Jon is not Italian —so a 1000 start actually starts at 1000. 79R address is just the Red colored 79, and it’s not that far from the blue 79 — but it helps to know the difference. Initial overview (which started at 1030 for us) was very helpful, and downloaded map works perfectly. Winery is easily worth an hour to relax and enjoy the quiet. Totally understand why bike locks are not provided (since they cannot secure the high value battery), but it does limit exploring more of Fiesole.

Ok, let’s get this straight. I knew ahead of time that it was a self guided tour, but oh my gosh 24 miles! Even though it’s an E bike you are still climbing uphill a portion of it and it is not for the faint of heart. The owner is a super nice friendly — smiling all the time guy, but he talks very fast when explaining the route.. so you kind of glaze over a little bit when he’s talking!
Getting around town in Florence is a challenge because you don’t want to get hit. There are cars everywhere! Once you get up to the beautiful views in the Tuscany area it is breathtaking, so he end result is why I gave it 3 stars.
I would never do it again. I would much rather take a tour bus and go see the wineries in Tuscany.
But hey I did the whole thing, and I’m 63 years old, and I’m probably in better shape because of doing it!

This is a SELF guided tour with the power assistance E Bikes this provides a unique way to explore inside and surrounding landscapes of Florence. We got to see the various neighborhoods, a forest, and a nice visit to a vineyard. The E bikes helped significantly going up the hills and was my first time using them.
John provides a well designed laid out bike path tour that allows you to follow along on a map on your iPhone while in airplane mode.
Helmets are provided, but bring a large water bottle and comfortable shoes and cloths for a 3-5 hr bike ride.
You finish the ride along the river leading into town and by riding past the larger homes and tennis club before arriving the overlook at the Michelangelo Steps Piazza.
Make sure to list to John’s instructions on downloading the map the day before you tour as well as how to operate the E assist bike controls and breaking going down the hills.

We recently had a week long trip to Rome and took a day trip to Florence. Up early for the fast train, we arrived at E-Bikes Florence and had a delightful and informative orientation with John, and then headed out on a supported self-guided tour.

Our tour lasted about 4.5-5 hours with a stop at a winery and olive oil orchard. We had a lovely lunch with a glass of wine in the Tuscan hills.

This tour was the absolute highlight of our week in Italy. Hands down.

If you are spending some time in Rome and want a change of pace - quiet peaceful country side, olive orchards and vineyards, amazing forests, and profound history, this is the tour for you.

We did it all in a day trip from Rome and got to see most of the "must see" sights on top of the tour.

Do Not Miss This! Take a day from Rome if you aren't going to Florence. It is 100% worth it. Check out the view of Florence from the Tuscan hills.

As mentioned, this was the highlight of our jam-packed trip to Rome.
