Tuscany Bike Tours
Mountain and Road… Exciting Tuscany Bike Tours in Italy! Your Tuscan vacation is a great opportunity for a magnificent adventure on a biking tour using back roads and trails, catered to your capabilities.
Biking the hills and countryside in Tuscany.
The best months for cycling or touring Tuscany on bike are from March to June and from September to October. July and August are hot months and outdoor sports are limited to early mornings or late afternoons, or mainly for mountain bike outings at night. Other months can be cold or rainy, and during winter it is best to avoid mountain passes. In truth, Tuscany is great all year round for cycling aficionados!
The Discover Tuscany Team and licensed guides offer one day and multi-day bike tours in Chianti, Siena, Mugello and Florence, in the region of Tuscany, Italy. Single day Tuscan bicycle tours include winery visits, Chianti or Brunello wine tasting, visiting a Tuscan hill town and lunch in an authentic Tuscan style restaurant. Multi-day bike tours designed by professional guides show you the beauty of the Tuscan countryside while considering the guests ability and desire to challenge themselves.
Below we offer a few road bike and mountain bike itineraries, all of which we’ve done ourselves. A few are quite long and challenings, most are rides suitable for everyone.
On each itinerary we’ve indicated an assessement on the difficulty of the course. To give you an idea of our measuring parameters, we are more cyclo-tourists rather than cycling amateurs and even if we like challenging ourselves with long distances, we go at a moderate pace and with many stopes along the way, especially when we stop to snap a few photographs. On those itineraries where it is indicated, a GPS route and high resolution map can be downloaded on our forum.
But whatever tour you choose, by whatever mode, we promise an experience that is special, flexible and very personalized. You can be confident that in riding with locals (and not in a large group!) you will see the very best of Tuscany and all it has to offer — at a pace of YOUR choosing.
Vacation villas and apartment rentals are available in Tuscany and we can suggest and confirm some of the most charming accommodations. Active vacations include bike tours, hiking tours, white water rafting, water sports (scuba diving, snorkelling) and so much more. We can design a complete package for your family and friends travelling with you.
Our experienced and certified guides have the skill to show you the best that Tuscany has to offer.

A mountain bike or mountain bicycle (abbreviated MTB or ATB (all terrain bicycle)) is a bicycle designed for mountain biking, either on dirt trails or other unpaved environments. The sport originated in the U.S. state of California, on Marin county’s famous mountain, Mount Tamalpais. It was not until the late 1970s and early 1980s that road bicycle companies started to manufacture mountain bicycles using high-tech lightweight materials. Tuscany offers the perfect versatile landscape for weekend and custom designed mountain bike tour packages. The forest of Lucca, vineyards of Chianti, olive groves in Regello and rolling hills of Siena are the ideal setting for a mountain bike tour.
