Dreams do come true, ride a pro level Pinarello, in Tuscany, Italy. Now’s your chance: Italian style, performance, road handling, stiffness, lightness = pure exhilaration. End of discussion. Again. Pinarello Dogma F12 and Pinarello Gan Disk. Two Italian thoroughbreds, available for rent at Tuscany Bicycle.
Turn heads with the new Pinarello Grevil Shimano Ultegra Disc Adventure All Road Bike (Gravel Bike), and experience the thrill of a bike that has been engineered for unrivalled capability on all surfaces, from smooth asphalt road to challenging trails. Versatility and adaptability are key, as are style, beauty and inherent capability. A gravel bike as only Pinarello could imagine it. She’s both a beauty and a beast, all in one bike.
The Bianchi Via Nirone, which has a frame which once raced the Paris-Roubaix, is Bianchi’s classic entry level bike – but the Via Nirone isn’t such an entry level bike as it actually features and shares some of Bianchi’s most technical solutions which are found on higher level carbon fiber road bikes.
Ride a true classic Italian road bike, in Tuscany. Ride like a Tuscan!
The Pinarello Nytro is a true road bike thoroughbred, with racing in its veins, derived directly from one of Pinarello’s flagship road bikes, the F10 – the Nytro features a slightly longer wheelbase and slightly higher stack, resulting in a more comfortable and less extreme bike. The understated and elegant motor unit, manufactured by Fazua, provides a realistic and natural pedal stroke assistance, with three levels of assist.
The Focus Thron 2 is an attractive, pure fun machine, dual suspended E-MTB, equally at home on paved roads as well as trails. It is extremely versatile and agile, and features the powerful and dynamic Bosch Performance CX motor unit, as well as 625 watt integrated battery.
The C Sport Hybrid is proudly designed by Bianchi, the world’s longest established bicycle manufacturing company still in existence. Bianchi’s C Sport Hybrid features the spirit of a true racing bike with the control and comfort of a city bike.
We provide high quality, well maintained vintage bikes for rent for all historic bike rides in Tuscany such as: L’Eroica, L’Eroica Primavera, L’Intrepida and La Marzocchina.
Riding a vintage bike is like stepping back in time, to another era and dimension, reliving glorious cycling moments. Tuscany, and in particular Chianti Classico, provides the perfect venue for enjoying all things classic bikes have to offer.
All of our bikes come equipped with a helmet, lock, repair kit, spare tube and tire levers. However, this is not the case for vintage bikes: we do not provide repair kits, nor spare tubes nor tire levers for vintage bikes.
Our entire fleet comes equipped with standard, flat pedals included in each bike rental. Clipless pedals (Look Keo, Shimano Spd Sl, Shimano Spd MTB) are available for rent for a nominal extra fee.
Tuscany Bicycle water bottles are available for purchase in our store. Water bottles are not included in bike rentals.

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.
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!!
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.
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.
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!!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!!
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
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!
