L´Eroica is a vintage Gran Fondo ride which is held in the Chianti region (Tuscany, Italy) on the first Sunday of every October. This is a truly traditonal and unique cycling event. To get you in the spirit of the event you will even ride a vintage pre-1985 steel road bike! The ride includes many kilometres on the famous strada bianca which are the white gravel roads of Tuscany.
The experience is truly rewarding – cycle from dawn to dusk, from a tankful of energy to those last final drops, from exhilaration to fatigue ...
We have designed a memorable tour following the landscapes and most picturesque towns AND cities of Tuscany: Florence, medieval Siena, Pisa and the smaller villages of Lucca, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Gaiole, Greve and Radda in Chianti. You will immerse yourself in all things Tuscany including its diverse districts and traditions, superb food and fine wine: Viva la Toscana!
Why not join us for what will be a step back in time to take in the joys of yesteryear cycling!
L´Eroica and the Strada Bianca are Italy´s version of Paris Roubaix!
