Tuscany: Cycling Activity Holiday
Sun, dolce vita and picturesque towns...
Tuscany’s landscape lends itself to the perfect cycling holiday. From amateur to professional, you will find a cycle tour for your fitness level. Cyclists in Tuscany stick together, and if you do find yourself in trouble on the side of the road, someone will stop and help you. The best months for cycling or touring Tuscany on bike are from March to June and from September to October. July and August are hot months and outdoor sports are limited to early mornings or late afternoons or mainly for mountain bike outings at night. Other months can be cold or rainy, and during winter it is best to avoid mountain passes when cycling in Tuscany. Many villages have water fountains, so take advantage and fill up your water bottle when you can.
