“Outstanding experience... from the inside out”
Review of Umbria by Bike

Umbria by Bike
Attraction details
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Francesco and his family offers a great service! We just were overwhelmed by their generosity... We felt more of being part of the family than being clients or tourists... If you are looking for an "out of the box" experience, go for Umbria by Bike. This guy knows how to do it!
With Francesco, my friends and I went on pilgrimage... by bike. Yes, we visited all the places where Saint Francis and Sainte Claire had passed, took all the time that we needed to pray, visit...take photos... meanwhile Francesco was waiting for us outside watching the bikes. This being said, there's nothing "formal" in this experience, not at all... Francesco was one of us, very friendly, always helpful and generously attentive. He even treated us a typical Umbrian breakfast generously prepared by his mom at his own place! By the end of the day, we went back to his place, had dinner with his parents... and what a dinner! These people knows how to do it... the right way, and by that I mean, with heart. Cherry on the cake: Francesco's father has a ceramic shop in Assisi... we wished we had some time to go visit as well.
Thank you Francesco for making this day one of the best in our whole trip ! Thanks for your generosity and for making us feel part of your family. Thanks for your great parents as well !
We are constantly sharing this moments with our friends and family.
If you don't want to be "just a tourist" in Umbria, call that guy.

Francesco does an excellent job. He delivered the bike to my Agriturismo near Assisi, brought all the equipment I requested. When the helmet didn't fit me, he went to some trouble to get me the outsize helmet I needed. He is friendly and very helpful. I needed to break off the trip early (planned for 7 days, cycled 3 days). He only charged me for three days, picked up the bike from the train station in Maria Degli Angeli, and sent me off with lots of charm and good feeling, and a can of his family's "Umbria By Bike" olive oil.
All in all, I can strongly recommend this service. It was a great experience.

Francesco Pieri from Umbria by Bike speaks English and offers friendly, extensive, expert service on bikes and equipment. He also has extensive knowledge of riding in the Umbria region. I would highly recommend Umbria by Bike.
