Our first gravel tour and it doesn't disappoint!
May 20 - 27, 2024
Sept 29 - Oct 6, 2024
Tour cost is US$ 4,250 (request the tour summary for description and inclusions).
We'll ride the white roads of the famous Eroica and of the Strade Bianche professional race, plus many more miles of gravel that we've discovered throughout the years on our own adventures.
Tuscany Strade Bianche
The Strade Bianche Race has made Tuscany’s iconic white roads famous, but riders started grinding gravel along these routes long before the professional cyclists and fans began flocking to the area.
Many miles of white gravel roads wind through Tuscany's countryside, many going unnoticed by tourists and cyclists. We've traveled many of them and have included our favorites on this challenging and beautiful tour.
This itinerary is filled with “white roads,” interesting stops, and authentic beauty. While Tuscany does not need any presentation, it never disappoints.
It is hard to believe there are still so many unknown and hidden corners of this wildly popular tourist destination, but there are, and these are literally the roads less traveled - and more graveled - but still fully supported in high style.
