Everyhing about our interaction with Paolo at Tuscany Ride a Bike was fantastic! We emailed with him a few days before arriving in Lucca, as my husband and I wanted to do some biking but were unsure what the weather and terrain would be. Paolo made several suggestions of routes, tours and weather predictions - we ended up picking the ride & wine tour option. Not only was it a great combination of scenery and biking, Paolo was extremely generous with the ride options, conversation, and general suggestions for other things to do in Lucca. He clearly cares about his clientele and made us feel like old friends - he even suggested several local ( no touristy) restaurants for us to eat at during the rest of our stay. If not for Paolo, we would not have had such a wonderful weekend in Lucca!
As for the ride, I'm fit but not in the best shape so I was happy to know that Paolo could accommodate fast ( my husband) and slow riders (me). Our tour followed the Strada del Vino in Lucca to Montecarlo - ending at a beautiful winery where we had several tastings and a typical Tuscan "lite" lunch. I was tired from the first part of our day so Paolo took us back on a flatter route - which was extremely kind after so much food!
I would recommend Paolo's business to anyone who wants an authentic experience.
