Bike Tour
01.03.2012 - 31.05.2012
Country Home La Fontana - Amelia
Eventi in Campagna


From Spring 2012 we will be offering professional bike tours around southern Umbria and in Tuscany.

Here is our first "Bike Tour".

Biking in Tuscany is a real joy as one sees the countryside at speed of man. You can discover art, culture, or simply enjoy nature so much more direcly and intimately by riding a bike. This region, with its variety of roads and great landscapes, offers a lot of opportunities for cyclists. I have worked out some routes to fit everyone's capabilities, ranging between 25-200 kilometers of length ( 15-125 miles) on mostly paved level roads, although more demanding routes are possible. Each route is connected with a particular aspect of the territory (Nature, History etc).
The tours will be operated in different areas: Around lake Bolsena and into Maremma, from Maremma into the Sienese hills and around the Val D'Orcia. The Val di Cornia, an area near the coast, with its several natural parks to visit,cradle of the etruscan civilization and its interesting necropolis.
During the tours a stop will be made to get refreshed and eat a light lunch in a winery or at an Agriturismo. The tours are from 5 to 6 days day long, (longer tours are possible on request), start and finish on the requested spot. A minivan fitted with a bike carrier will take you to the starting point and pick you up at the end, and will be at your disposal all the tour long, in the event that assistance is needed.
An English speaking guide will ride with you at your pace and give you information and assistance. You can take the tours with your own bikes; otherwise I can provide you with an Italian premium road or mountain bike, the right size to fit you, with aluminium frame and 24 speed to tackle every slope. Helmets and water bottle will be provided as well.
