Tour operator:  Ride and Seek Bike Tours

Ride the white roads of quintessential Tuscany, explore Siena, and discover lesser-know Maremma.

Following on from our successful tours in Puglia and Friuli this tour is another PLUS collaboration between Tourissimo and Ride and Seek. Beppe Salerno and Dylan Reynolds (owners of Tourissimo and Ride and Seek respectively) first worked together back in 2001 when they were both guiding in Italy. Since then they have both built up their own businesses with a similar ethos of immersing guests in the places they visit. The PLUS Tours are week long adventures that focus on cycling, history and culture with the + element aimed at offering more to our clientele through collaboration. They include guides from either company who are experts in the areas where the tours are focused.

The Strade Bianche tour is our first foray into the world of gravel as we continue to seek out the road less travelled. The hallowed strade bianche (white roads) of Tuscany have featured on our Eroica tours but this is the first time we’ve designed a regular tour around them. We worked with your input to design an itinerary filled with ‘white roads’, interesting stops, and authentic beauty. This tour can be enjoyed on regular road bikes with wider profile tires or, if you’re keen to embrace the the strade bianche in all their glory, you could try a specific gravel bike. Rental wise we can provide on both fronts. While Tuscany does not need any presentation, it never disappoints. The area south of Florence, around Siena and in the Val d’Orcia, will set the stage for the first part of our exploration by bike. You will visit medieval hilltop towns, abbeys, and wineries. We finish on the Tyrrhenian seacoast in the Maremma region (a natural reserve). We start in the countryside in the village of Radda in the Chianti area. From there, we will explore part of the Chianti and Montalcino production area with visits to some of our favourite wineries.

A big part of the appeal of this tour for us is the sense of adventure that comes from being able to get off the beaten track. Gravel bikes are also known as ‘Adventure’ bikes and this is a word that very much fits with the ethos of what we do.
