We promise this tour will show you a side of riding that you have never experienced before! It will re-ignite your senses and leave you with a feeling of admiration for the incredible cycling heroes in history who won races on wonderful vintage bikes with their downtube shifters, long brake cables and toe-clips. As Giancarlo Brocci, creator of L'Eroica, has said “We want people to rediscover the beauty of fatigue and the thrill of conquest”.
L'Eroica a non-competitive and globally renowned cycling event. With 5 different course lengths it's accessible to everyone (32km, 46km, 78km, 130km and 209km).
Prior to the L’Eroica Ride on Sunday, 6th October, we will enjoy three days of cycling on modern road bikes (Bianchi Infinito CV, with disc brakes and electronic shifters). We'll explore the Tuscan countryside and the beautiful city of Siena, while sampling the delicious local cuisine, savouring the local wines and indulging in the Italian culture.
We will then swap our bikes for a weekend of riding on a pre-1987 Vintage classic. A morning coffee ride will allow you the chance to get used to your new bike, before an afternoon of rest in preparation for the epic L'Eroica Ride!
What makes this tour one of our guests' favourites? You don’t have to worry about anything - we will provide two bikes (one new and one vintage), and supply you with your very own vintage kit... which means if you are as fashion conscious as our Italian friends then you will look just the part dressed in the classic celeste Bianchi Kit! And of course, start numbers are guaranteed.
