Fantastic personalized experience from Elizabeth and her crew. High end Pinarello road bikes available so you can leave your bike at home. Quality helmets included in price to make your packing even easier! Delivered bikes to our hotel in Montalcino which is about an hour from the shop.
But best part of service was that they came all the way back the next day, at short notice, to exchange a bike (my fault, not theirs). EXCELLENT!

Whether you are a very serious rider or haven’t been on a bike for years Tuscanybicycle have a huge selection of amazing bikes to suit everyone. We have visited Tuscany many times and I have to say seeing the countryside around Gaiole in Chianti on a bike was probably the nicest way we have seen it. Elizabeth set out a really fantastic route with incredible views and points to stop off mostly on the quiet tar roads but also with a taster of the famous white roads. Taking the e-bikes out meant we were able to cover 50km plus with some big climbs even with a group of 8 mostly non cyclists and still fit in a 2 hour lunch ! The bikes are really nice spec and in great condition. The batteries easily lasted all day even with one of the group having it on “turbo” the whole time. They also have some amazing non e-bikes. Next time we’re there I will be trying the Pinarello F12 dogma for sure !

Elizabeth and her team provided an excellent bike tour for our group of 7. We were a group mixed between electric and regular bikes, and she was able to ensure that we all managed the trip equally well. She even had a van follow us and carry belongings. She brought us to a wine tasting, and thanks to her expertise and connections, was able to ensure we tasted the highest quality wine available. Based on her local knowledge, I also relied on Elizabeth for lunch reservations and was not disappointed!

We rented 2 great Pinarellos from Elisabeth, who throughout the process was extremely helpful. Elisabeth answered our questions immediately, provided us with maps, and the delivery and pick-up was smooth.
The bikes were great and top class - they were cleaned, oiled and ready to roll.
Tuscany Bicycle is highly recommendable, and next time we are going to rent bikes in Tuscany we will rent here.

We have just returned from a fabulous bike tour (off road and our first experience of electric bikes) with Elisabeth as our guide. The bikes were tremendous (high quality, well serviced, new) and booking was straightforward and very efficient. The experience was out of this world. The views were heavenly and the spots Elisabeth took us to we would not have found ourselves. Elizabeth’s combined knowledge of bikes, Tuscan hill routes and wine is a potent combination. Our trip was a little bit of paradise on wheels. Could not recommend highly enough.

We spent 10 days in the Tuscany area but the day we toured Chianti with Elizabeth, was by far our favorite day. She took us to two stunningly beautiful wineries where she shared her own knowledge of wine, which was extensive and so very helpful. She customized the tour for us, was great company, and kept us safe. She knew the people at the wineries very well and was clearly respected by them all. We will definitely be back for more with this company!

Elisabeth took me along for many scenic and fascinating biking tours through the soft Chianti hills. The Pinarello bikes are light and great to ride.
Elisabeth is an excellent sommelier with an outstanding competence in the Tuscan wines which made the tours unforgettable. We visited several wine producers & enotecas on our biking trips. The combination of biking and tasting selected wines of specific wineries together with a sommelier is unique ! We have learned about the most beautiful places in the Chianti, but also about the excellent qualitiy of Chianti wines, realizing I have neglected them in the past years. Elisabeth is very well connected in this beautiful area and recommended us many excellent restaurants or other tours in the cities. Thus, there are many reasons to come back ! I can highly recommend Elisabeth, Tuscany Bicycle!

I went on a 5 day cycling trip to Toscane in September and rented a Pinarello Dogma F12 from Tuscany Bicycle. Usually I am quite critical, but must admit: everything was perfect! And this is why:

Friendly and professional service from Elizabeth
1) During the booking process she was very helpful in giving me advise and was answering all the questions I had via email very rapidly
2) I booked the service "drop off and pick-up" and that was great: she was there right in time. This saved me quite some time, since I was staying near Siena.
3) Bike fitting: she offered me great help with the correct bike fitting

The bike
At home I ride on a Trek Madone SLR7, so I am used to a high end bike. This was the reason I also wanted a high end bike in Toscane, it just adds to the whole experience:-). The Dogma was absolutely phenomenal! Stiffness combined with great comfort! It was a great bike for climbing, descending, riding on gravel roads!

So my general conclusion: absolutely 5 star experience and I will certainly return next year, thanks again Elizabeth!

Elizabeth and her team are an absolute joy! The rental fleet is jaw-droppingly gorgeous, and the upkeep and maintenance are bar-none. I can't recommend highly enough. The white roads are bucket-list stunning, and there's no better way to tackle them than on one of Tuscany Bicycle's exceptional steeds.

Rented a Pinarello Dogma F12 for 2 days - fab service from booking to returning the bike at the end. Great suggestion of routes on the website as well - would also suggest a guided tour of you have the time.

Excellent service guys!
