Cycling, including riding an e-bike
, is certainly the best way to really experience rural Tuscany and especially the Chianti Classico wine area
. Cycling is environmentally friendly, it is quiet and it takes you back to the slower pace of life that we rarely experience these days. Chianti
is a hilly area of Tuscany, filling the triangle formed by the municipalities of Castellina in Chianti
, Radda in Chianti
and Gaiole in Chianti
. This is the zone that gives life to production of the famous Chianti Classico wine
, one of the wines most appreciated and sought after by wine-lovers.
Chianti is an ideal and wonderful area to tour by e-bicycle
. The famous Eroica cycling event
was born on these roads, a symbol of epic cycling during the early 1900's right up until today.
Travelling by electric bicycle in Chianti is an extraordinary experience that leaves the pleasant flavour of a return to the past, back to a cycling fatigue and dirt roads, pleasant encounters and glimpses of pristine landscapes.
Vineyards, ancient castles, abbeys, monasteries and especially the dense network of white roads (strade bianche)
criss-crossing vineyard-covered hills and small villages of incredible charm, make Chianti a wonderful area to explore by bicycle or by e-bike.
We propose some e-bike routes
, all of them personally tested, for either self-guided or guided e-bike excursions
. Some are quite long and demanding, others are rides suitable for everyone. For each tour, we indicate an assessment of the difficulty of the route. With our e-bikes anyone, even the less energetic, can experience the wonderful feeling of "Made it".
