Bike Florence & Tuscany shows the same care in choosing quality equipment as we do in selecting organic vineyards and authentic food partners on our tours. Each aspect of the bike is carefully considered for the type of riders and the destination on their exclusive itineraries in the discovery of Tuscany.
Relying on our years as amateur bike racers and Piero’s intense experience as a bike shop owner, we selected the best equipment for our guests which is most suited for their safety, pleasure and skills.

No one should ever be excluded from enjoying a slow travel adventure!
Is there someone in your group that doesn’t go cycling anymore yet would love to join the pedalling party in Tuscany? Or someone who is a casual biker and the idea of a few Tuscan hills makes them just bit nervous?
For those who are concerned about not being in shape, or for those who haven’t saddled up on two wheels for a while we have an alternative so that they don’t have to sit on the sidelines for this beautiful experience.
For a quality ride, we have chosen Bianchi e-bikes, an Italian brand known for its quality production. After years of testing, they have developed a sophisticated system that uses a combination of pedalling and a battery operated motor which kicks in on the more challenging parts of the itinerary. With no extra controls or switches, the motor will softly add a bit of sprint in to help lighten the effort allowing the biker to pedal naturally.
– MTB 24″ for heights between 130 – 140 cm / 4’ 2” – 4’ 5” ft/in
– MTB 20” for heights between 120 – 130 cm / 3’ 9” – 4’ 2” ft/in
A Tow Bar (suitable for the 20”MTB, small children) converts a standard child bicycle into a trailer bike. The child can be attached to the parent bike or pedal/freewheel independently of the towing adult. When in the towing position, the front wheel of the child’s cycle is raised away from the ground to prevent them from steering independently. Should your child be capable of riding, the tow bar can be either unfastened along the way or definitely not provided to allow him/she to ride independently from you.
