JOIN BICI ITALIA & LAURA SANDER FOR WOMEN’S CYCLING RETREAT

 AUGUST XTH THROUGH AUGUST 17TH, 2020

 

Having two BICI ITALIA trips under her wheels, Casey Cohenmeyer & Co return with her own trip to crush some gravel, take some PRs &Q/KOMs, laugh (maybe cry) and generally give no f*cks. Trip promises to provide amazing road and gravel rides, chef-prepared meals, wine and birra, sunset pizza, and sightseeing sans cycling gear. It's a week to 'live like an Italian cyclist’, eat all the salami, drink all the wine and enjoy all that Tuscany has to offer.

Together with Casey, BICI ITALIA has crafted a premium, concierge-style trip guaranteed to be a trip of a lifetime. Whether you've cycled in Italy before or are looking to cross it off your bucket list, this custom trip vows to be an unique experience.

You will stay as our guest at a typical (but far from ordinary!) Tuscan villa agriturismo B&B. The kind of place were Mama makes handmade pasta & pastries, were the house wine really IS the house wine (and designated Chianti Classico at that!), and your insalata misti is plucked fresh from the garden after you order it.  Buonissimo!

After a ride, you'll clean up, enjoy some antipasti and visit neighboring towns & cities for site seeing, wine tasting tours, castles & local markets, or just relax by the pools. The evenings are spent relaxing at your 'Italian Home', watching the sunset & enjoying delicious, authentic Tuscan meals. 

End of September/Early October is a premium time to ride in Tuscany with ideal weather conditions, and most likely, you will get to witness the final stages of wine harvest and perhaps go on a truffle hunt.

This trip also lands on our area’s biggest cycling events…L’Eroica. Harkening back to the grand era of ‘heroic cycling’, this original gravel gran fondo is ridden on vintage bikes, in vintage apparel, on the famous Strade Bianche (yes, this event was the precursor to the Strade Bianche Pro Race). Surrounding the event is a cycling swap meet and overall celebration of cycling’s history. Even if vintage bikes aren’t your jam, it’s a great week to be in Chianti.
