Why Tuscany Bicycle
Bike delivery service
Elizabeth Miller, Managing Director for Tuscany Bicycle, is a lifelong cycling enthusiast and professional sommelier. She saw one of her life long, bike dreams come true, with the foundation of Tuscany Bicycle in 2015. Elizabeth is a native of Pennsylvania, USA, where she grew up mountain biking and enjoying terrain similar to Tuscany for cycling. In the late 1980’s, while still a teenager, Elizabeth enrolled at the Università Cattolica in Milan, and subsequently fell in love with road cycling, the racing scene, and many of the artisanal framebuilders of Northern Italy. A lifelong love affair with Italian cycling had officially begun !
In the years which followed, Elizabeth wore the prized Santini Jersey with “Campionessa della Lombardia” written across the front, three times. In the 1990’s, Elizabeth raced in numerous mountain bike, road cycling and track events, both at the amateur and pro level.
Elizabeth has been involved in the cycling active travel industry for the last 25 years, from personally guiding hundreds of multiday cycling holidays, to currently owning her own boutique cycling tour company called Tuscany Bicycle Travel, a purveyor of unique and delightful cycling adventures, geared towards discriminating, avid cyclists looking to explore the roads less traveled, known only to locals.
Elizabeth and her dynamic and energetic staff, look forward to making your cycling dreams come true – now, shut up legs !!!
