Avete mai sognato di pedalare in Toscana su una bici di alta gamma, un capolavoro dell’arte ciclistica italiana? Allora adesso è giunto il momento di farlo!
Tuscany Bicycle inserisce dal 2017 la Pinarello GAN nella propria flotta: una full carbon monoscocca, meraviglioso purosangue marchiato Pinarello. La GAN ricalca in parte il design della Dogma F8, utilizzando però il carbonio T600 invece del top di gamma. Il gruppo è completamente affidato a Shimano, con l’Ultegra 11v, e le ruote sono le ottime Fulcrum 3, perfette sia per salire in scioltezza che per scendere in velocità le colline del Chianti Classico.
Cosa potrebbe esserci di più esilarante di un giorno in sella tra i paesaggi della Toscana?
!!! NOVITA’ 2019 !!!
DISPONIBILE DA MARZO

Tuscany Bicycle è orgogliosa di offrire la possibilità di noleggiare biciclette d’epoca. Abbiamo una serie di misure disponibili da 48 cm fino a 63 cm, tra cui biciclette di marchi noti come Bianchi, Moser e Viner. Tutte le nostre bici d’epoca sono in ottime condizioni meccaniche, revisionate e testate da una locale officina specializzata. Naturalmente, le bici vintage sono differenti da quelle moderne in fatto di tecnologie dei materiali e nella meccanica: la scelta dei rapporti del cambio si riduce, minore è la capacità frenante, in generale sono più pesanti delle biciclette di oggi. Le biciclette eroiche richiedono un alto livello di esperienza per poterne godere appieno.

Forniamo in affitto biciclette vintage in ottimo stato per tutte le manifestazioni storiche della Toscana come: L’Eroica, L’Eroica Primavera, L’Intrepida e la Marzocchina.
(Nota bene: Le dimensioni delle biciclette d’epoca sono limitate, soprattutto durante la settimana del l’Eroica. Consigliamo di prenotare la tua bici d’annata per l’evento il più presto possibile).

Went to EROICA and rented 4 vintage bikes with my friends. Everything was easy going. We did a quick bike fit days before the event . Stored the bikes and picked up just in time for starting line. We returned the bikes without any trouble. The shop is very close to the finnish line. In a few minutes after our arrival we were bike free and enjoying eroica pasta party. I do recommend the shop. Fillippo is super patient and avaiable guy. Great job tuscany bicycle!
Visited Gaiole for my first time after riding from Nice to Tuscany. Contact with Gina Joy at Tuscany Bicycle was professional and prompt at all times. It was comforting throughout my arrangements knowing that I was dealing with a professional. The vintage bike hire was handled with ease for my friends and I. In person, Gina was equally impressive as she was during our pre ride communication. A real ‘JOY’ to deal with and couldn’t recommend highly enough. PS the L’Eroica ride day was a fantastic experience and the Chianti region a superb destination with great food, wine, scenery, culture and people
We had a fabulous time and took Filippo’s suggestion to go up the hill to the castle - not sure we could do it, but the e-Bike made it NO PROBLEM! Fantastic- would do it again...my 77 year old mother did it with me - bravissimo!!
My brother and I rented hybrid bikes and did a three-hour ride around the region. I was very impressed by the service we received. We got to the shop at the opening time, it opened right on schedule, and we were soon on our way. We got great recommendations about where to go and the staff gave us a map with suggested routes shown. The area is beautiful to bike around with the legendary white roads which although steep made for some exciting riding. Highly recommended!
Excellent treatment and service by Tuscany Bicycle. We are from Madrid. We rented 3 Pinarello gan Disk for 2019 Strade Bianche. They brought the bikes to the place we chose on time and with the 3 bikes mint condition. After the race they picked them up also in the place and time we chose. The bikes were brand new! 2019 model. They accepted all changes we suggested for oor preferences. EXCELLENT treatment by fart of Filippo, the owner.We will repeat with them for sure. Perfect.
Hired a bike from these guys before we left home. Had great service and advice on rides of interest. Bianchi gravel bike was clean, serviced and set up with pedals and after a quick bike fit was good to go. Highly recommend this company. Thanks guys.
We had 4 days in Tuscany and time to ride on 3 days. Having never been I was heavily relying on Tuscany Bicycles to get me going. Pre-reserved a bike, etc. Upon my arrival I was thrilled to receive a top shelf carbon fiber road bike in terrific condition. Additionally, Fillipo went out of his way to spend time looking over a map with me, making recommendations based on my interest in mileage, vertical, etc. and then programmed a Garmin accordingly. He absolutely nailed his recommendations and I had 3 of the best road rides of my life! Additionally, Fillipo and Elizabeth couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating both over email in preparation for the trip or upon arrival. Wonderful, helpful people who truly want you to experience the time of your life!
Fillipo dropped off all 6 bikes at our villa and we rode for 6 days all over Chianti. He provided some suggestions for routes and how to manage the battery power and where to charge on the road if required. The bikes were great quality with the Bosch drive system. Hills were a breeze and we were able to ride at least 60 km with tons of hills no problem. We mostly stayed in eco mode (minimal assist) and then moved to tour mode (more assist) to help with the hills at the end of the day. In the evening we used sport and turbo mode to get to the nearest town for shopping and supper. They supplied rear racks, panniers, helmets and locks. There are so many cool places to ride and an e-bike is the best way to see it. I highly recommend Tuscany Bicycle!
Just back from an awesome 11 days in Tuscany. Rented our bikes from Tuscany Bicycle and Fillipo and Elizabeth could not of been more accommodating, delivering our gear in our departure town and picking them up in San Gimignano. This is a spectacular region to bike with LOT'S of hills and beautiful views & charming towns. Our bikes were perfect for the topography. Would recommend Tuscany Bicycle without hesitation!!
We recently returned from a two week visit to Gaiole. I decided to rent bikes to ride some of the many dirt roads around town with my children. I reached out to Gina who was so helpful with locating a second children’s bike and Fillipio one of the owners who offered much useful advice on route selection for small children.
On our recent trip to Tuscany, six in our group wanted to do some cycling on our own during our one week stay at a villa in Barberino Val d'Elsa and chose to rent bicycles from Tuscany Bicycle. Communication with Elizabeth was easy and timely (she was very patient with our large group) from the first time I contacted her. When we had to make some last minute adjustments to the rental period and the drop-off and pick-up times, they did not hesitate to accommodate us. All six bikes were delivered to our villa and set up by Filippo and he made sure we were all comfortable with our bikes (he worked very hard.) The bikes were excellent and in great working order. My husband and I had the Bianchi Gravel bikes (mainly because it was one of the only ones big enough for his 6'7" height) which were excellent. Just a side note here: the three in our group who chose the Cobra Hybrids did wish they had chosen one of the lighter bicycles after experiencing the hills! Here is where Tuscany Bicycle went above and beyond in providing outstanding service: when the bikes were delivered, one of our members knew that he would not be happy with the bike he initially booked and talked to Filippo about possibly getting a different one. By the next morning, Elizabeth and Filippo had sourced a suitable bike from a partner company (their own inventory was fully booked) and made arrangements to come back to our villa and exchange the bikes. They did not need to do this but went out of their way to make sure we would all have a great experience. We did!! We are incredibly impressed with the service (and the bikes) provided and would not hesitate to choose Tuscany Bicycle again. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to ride on our own in Tuscany for a few days and being able to rent good bicycles that could be delivered to us made that possible. Great experience, outstanding service!
Elizabeth and Filippo were awesome. They not only are partners at Tuscon Bicycle but are hands on and involved in every detail in the planning and execution of the rides. They amazing, scenic, and safe routes for our group that one day including wine tasting/lunch and on another, a wonderful lunch in a sleepy picturesque Tuscan village. The quality of the bikes were excellent (carbon fiber upgrade) and our guides very professional. We've ridden with the big name companies and there's nothing like the personalized service and attention that a smaller company brings to your experience. The van support was also a plus. Elizabeth will help you plan a biking trip of your dreams.
How fortuitous of me to find Tuscany Bicycle on a google search! I worked with Elizabeth (co-owner) for a couple of months designing and organizing our rides - through several changes to our itinerary and our specific requests - and she was top notch! I couldn't have asked for better service. The carbon bikes we received were in pristine condition and the routes we were taken on for our day trips were nothing short of perfection! We had lovely backroads, they were safe, incredibly picturesque, challenging but doable (with the van for support if needed) and our stops in local villages were so sweet. Elizabeth organized lunches both days - one day at winery, Tenuta Torciano, for an incredible wine tasting with lunch. It simply doesn't get better than that! The owners were extremely knowledgeable not only of the region and biking but also gave us wonderful recommendations for restaurants and wine in the region. My husband and I have done several Backroads and Butterfield Robinson trips, so our standards were high, but Elizabeth and Tuscany Bicycle exceeded our expectations immensely! I can not wait til next Summer to plan another trip! Brava!!
Uncanny that one bike company can provide a group of riders of varied speed preferences with all of these things: superior quality bicycles, challenging, yet manageable and safe(!), courses, ever-present and friendly support, incredible views, photo-ops, and final, glorious descents that lead to delicious food and wine. Elizabeth, Fillipo, and Chris managed to do so with aplomb. They are smart professionals, knowledgeable about the local terrain, food, and wine, and all around wonderful people to spend the day with. They go the extra mile so your miles (substitute kilometers as necessary) will be fun, safe, and delicious.
