Rode a couple days with Tuscany Bicycle and could not have had a better time. Ricardo was absolutely amazing and the best guide we could have asked for. Extremely nice, personable, knowledgeable, and really made both days amazing. We did both the Chianti Villages West tour and the Gravel Tour and thankfully had Ricardo both days. The wine and people at Le Miccine Winery were the best we experienced on the entire trip as well. Absolutely amazing experience from the planning stages to the rides themselves. Great communication all around and the Pinarello bikes they have are top notch (now I want SRAM etap shifters…). Roads were quiet with not too many cars and again, Ricardo was awesome. Wineries and lunch spots were absolutely amazing and 1000% better than anything you will find in guide books. Highly recommend this company and wish we could take Ricardo with us on other riding adventures around the world.

We LOVED our tour with Elizabeth! She choose the perfect scenic, downhill ride for us as beginners. She was so knowledgeable about the wine tastings we stopped for and the cooking class she selected was excellent! Cannot recommend enough!

A huge thank you to Elizabeth, to Ricardo and the whole team at Tuscany Bicycle for the scenic and beautiful tours on great bikes like Pinarello! We hired racing bikes, gravel bikes and e-bikes, the roads in the Gaiole area are amazing, nice, soft hills and with a great panorama. Thank you Tuscany Bicycle, we shall be back!

I just wanted to leave a quick review to say a huge thank you to Gina and everyone at Tuscany Bicycle for going the extra mile (or kilometre?) I hired a Cervelo gravel bike a couple of weeks ago, but on my flight out, my luggage didn't make it. I thought about skipping the cycling, what was the point with no gear? But Gina sorted me out with cycling kit - love the shop, btw! - helmet & shoe hire etc, all I needed, and got me on my bike, quickly, no fuss - super friendly and with smart advice on routes to try. The roads around there are amazing, great hills, and so, so scenic. The bike was brilliant, on road and on the strade bianche. Rides to remember and fab customer service (more than can be said for British Airways...) Thanks Tuscany Bicycle, I'll definitely be back!

Elizabeth Miller owner of Tuscany Bicycle is an amazing host and guide. She is extremely bright, personable, and very knowledgeable about biking, the region and wine. The two bike shops in the beautiful town of Goige Nin Chianti are really great. We highly recommend the ebike tours with Tuscany Bicycle. This the ONE thing and place you want to book in Italy!

We can't say enough good things about Tuscany Bike. Like many 'self guided travel agents' we booked our own plans throughout our travels in Italy and were new the country. So when we looked to book a bike tour we selected Tuscany Bike. From start to finish the staff at Tuscany were top notch! The team answered all our email questions before we every got to Italy, they recommended lodging in Siena, helped provide transportation to and from the biking location (Gabriele was our AMAZING driver and even showed us around town after our ride to do some shopping before heading back to Siena!), Ricardo is a retired professional cyclist who so graciously guided our tour ( of just my husband and myself), told us about the local landscape, kindly took our pictures, and was a delight to spend the day with. Elizabeth (owner) and Gina (staff) were very kind and of great help as well. I am picky/selective about tours and always wonder "It is really that good?" Trust me..this company a no brainer..a 100% homerun! Nice bikes, nice route, beautiful countryside and WONDERFULY FRIENDLY staff!

Elizabeth was wonderful and the perfect guide. The Ebike tour was incredible. Her bikes are literally brand new and made the ride seem flat though we did 2k feet of elevation on our 26 mile ride. She will custom tailor your ride based on your interest and riders ability. We rode on a very hot day yet she managed to find us amazing terrain and scenery that kept us cool.We loved the restaurant she selected for lunch. Outstanding food, service, and away from the hot Tuscan sun. I can't say enough, it was a once in a lifetime experience. If you decide to ride in Tuscany, look no further than Tuscany Bicycle. You will enjoy every minute.

For the third year in a row: perfect top-tier road bikes and service! We are a group of between 15 and 20 colleagues from Germany touring Tuscany for 5 days every year. Wouldn‘t go anywhere else!

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 !!!
