Bicycling routes in Tuscany - Biking in Tuscany




Biking in Tuscany is one of the most enjoyable activities you can engage in here. On weekends, the roads are lined with streams of racing bikes being ridden by extremely fit-looking Italian males so car drivers are very used to cyclists and accidents are rare. For tourists, ordinary touring bikes and also mountain bikes, are a fantastic way to see the countryside and really to engage with it in a way that is less easy when travelling by car.

It's generally agreed that the bicycling possibilities throughout the Chianti region are extremely good - smooth roads, beautiful scenery, challenging climbs, long down hill runs, and historical sites and vineyards on almost every route. Impruneta lies near the centre of the great ride from Siena to Florence, and is in fact an excellent base for circuits literally to all four points of the compass.
