“The essence of Tuscany encapsulated in one nearly 600km ride, passing through enchanted forests and century old towns and villages. A challenge against yourself, emotions to treasure forever.”
May 3rd 2020
A region, Tuscany, whose only name is one of the most famous brands in the world. A succession of beautiful and unique landscapes. Medieval centres interspersed with a stunning nature shaped by man. Lines of cypresses, country houses, medieval villages, streets carved into the tuff, marble quarries, the Maremma geometries drawn between sand bars and dunes, crystal-clear sea that refreshes sunny islands. This picture is completed by the unparalleled food and wine excellence offered by this region. Last but not least, the hospitality of the Tuscan people is noteworthy.
All that in a 560 km ride on your bike, from North to South, self-sufficient as true adventurers of the 21st century. Same route for everyone, uploaded on the GPS, to be covered at one’s own pace, without time limit, because adventure is a right that must be within everybody's reach.
The first and original “unsupported bicycle adventure” to date, it is the event in Europe having the largest number of participants: nearly 800. This route prefers the famous white Tuscan roads (a.o..known from "L'Eroica" or the "Strade Bianche" road race) but it also offers secondary paths away from traffic. Many words could be used to describe this event but without being exhaustive. The Tuscany Trail allows to see more than 35 different nations together, and you can browse among the many varieties of bicycles chosen by participants, ranging from 29" to gravel bike.
