Cycling Information
On this journey you cycle 161 km over five days (an average of 32 km per day) with further optional rides available. The rides mostly follow well-asphalted country lanes and quiet secondary roads (busier near the major towns) and there are some sections with cycle paths and gravel roads (splits as roughly 70% asphalted roads and 30% cycle paths and tracks). The terrain is flat with some hillier sections on days 4 and 6. We have graded the route as easy.
Included Bike
21 gear Hybrid Bike.

Electric bikes (e-bikes) are available for an additional cost for the duration of the holiday (£65). You will be required to pay a refundable deposit upon collection of the e-bike in country. Please contact us for more details or to request your e-bike.
Luggage Transfer
Included between each hotel and on day 6 the accommodation owner will take you and your luggage from Vinci to Empoli train station for your train journey to Florence.
