Holiday Information

A fantastic road cycling tour in the undiscovered mountains of the Garfagnana region of Northern Tuscany in Italy. The chances are that you won't have heard of this region of Italy, but this is good for us, as it allows us to get off the beaten track of "tourist" Tuscany, yet we're close enough to still reap the advantages.
Our destination for the week is located in the middle of two mountain ranges, the Apennines and the Alpi Apuane. These diverse mountain ranges allow us to have incredible variety during the week - each day we'll have different landscapes, new challenges and superb views.
During the week, you will experience the best of the road riding here - high mountain passes one day, quiet backroads of the Garfagnana and Lunigiana the next, cafe stops in tiny mountain villages, climbs made famous by the Giro d'Italia, even a visit to the beach - this trip has it all - more than enough to make you want to come back again!
Our local guides know the area inside-out, so days can be made longer on request by adding in an extra climb or another loop, or shortened to have more time at the pool with a glass of wine!
To learn a little more about this amazing road cycling area check out Skedaddle Olly's article on our website - Garfagnana The Land of the Enchanted Forest.
