A journey into the heart of Tuscany and its food and wine delicacies and then, "L'Eroica"
Here the roads were laid out by the Romans and before them by the Etruscans.
In those times, wheels were made of solid wood, heavy carts pushed by hand or pulled by horses.
In just a few years, the Eroica has become a cycling tourism classic for vintage bicycles, thanks to the cycling passion of the organizers whose endeavours have made this event one of a kind.
We will visit Arezzo and Siena, two magnificent cities in the heart of Tuscany and then "L'Eroica" will take you back over the years, to rediscover a wonderful sport, made of history and humanity, for those who love the beauty of hard work and the taste of challenge.
A cycling guide and a driver will guide you for 4 days to discover this magnificent area immersed in history, the bicycle will always be our way to discover the most hidden roads and the most suggestive views and then every day we will discover new typical dishes of the region in different restaurants.
If you want to participate in the "Eroica" you will need to have a bicycle prior to 1987 and shorts and a vintage wool sweater. It is recommended to dust off your old racing bike or you can rent it at a cost of 200 euros directly at the event. There will be 5 different routes of 46-75-115-135 and 209 km.
