Tuscany Cycling Season
The events, people, stories and landscapes that shape cycle culture in Tuscany.
Pag. 16 Garfagnana EPIC.
A green mountain, with ancient villages, castles and valleys at the limits of your imagination. The Garfagnana boasts epic scenery waiting to be explored by mountain bike.
You don’t need to be epic, just well-trained, but in the end, as you ride through the Garfagnana’s landscape, it’s true you will feel very special.
The “Epic” trail is one of the many mountain bike trails that give you a glimpse of the true nature of this immensely green mountain, inland and all up for discovery, close by to detours that head to the coast and sea, with the beauty of the Apuan Alps always on the horizon providing constant bearings.
Amidst medieval villages, ghost towns and film-worthly scenery.
The idea behind Tuscany Cycling Season is to celebrate the Tuscan region through its long-standing love affair with cycling. It is a story both about the region and about bikes, illustrating that the best way to enjoy the stunning local landscape is through the many cycling events and bike itineraries on offer.
We take inspiration from legendary cycling locations around the region and its most heroic cyclists, such as historic champions like Gino Bartali, Fiorenzo Magni and Gastone Nencini. Today, Tuscany still hosts some of the most important cycling races in the world, which pass through towns and countryside to become an essential part of the local heritage.
The region is full of places and events that all have their own unique take on cycling, with everything from bicycle tourism to mountain biking and Enduro trails.
The cycling season, it’s all around.
