As soon as you arrive in Tuscany, your Gravel Camp begins. We will arrange to transfer you from the airport to the Bike Villa in Buonconvento. Once there, a delicious lunch will be waiting for you and the welcome pack will be in your room. After lunch, when everyone has arrived, we will take a first ride together. After dinner, there will be an introductory meeting and we will discuss the week's programme
After a delicious breakfast, today's route is dominated by a mix between Eroica and Strade Bianche roads, where the highlight is the most famous stretch of all: the 'Monte Sante Mari' or 'Fabian Cancellara' stretch. Before dinner, we take an aperitif where we also review the day and discuss tomorrow's route.
On day 3 we ride a fantastic but also challenging route along the most beautiful sites of the Val D'Orcia region and the Crete Senesi. Along the way, picturesque villages, vast vineyards and whiter-than-white gravel roads. Along the way, there are two rest stops where you can refuel and enjoy the great views over the rolling Tuscan hills. During our daily aperitif, we will tell you more about the location and surroundings where we are staying.
This is a 'must-do' ride where we cycle with the group to Siena and ride the final of the Strade Bianche with finish at Plaza del Campo. We'll take time at this mythical spot for photos and, of course, a delicious Italian 'gelato'! Along the way, we will ride on wonderfully beautiful gravel lanes, known from the Strade Bianche and the Eroica Nova. After the ride, there will be the opportunity for a massage. Dinner will be accompanied by a local wine.
Time to recuperate today with a coffee ride or a full rest day to give the legs a rest after some solid gravel days and the necessary altimeters. Cycling is on your own for which we have several routes available. In the afternoon, there is a free programme and you can make your own plans. A wine tasting, to the beautiful village of Montalcino where you can visit the Eroica shop or just relax with a book by the pool. It is also possible to book a massage. The choice is yours! In the evening, we organise a workshop on sports nutrition.
This day is all about enjoyment. We ride through the Torrenieri wine region through an undulating landscape on the most beautiful gravel lanes in the Buonconvento region. Local guide Alessandro cycles with us today and tells all the ins and outs of this beautiful area. Over an aperitif, we discuss tomorrow's Eroica day.
To cap off the week, we close with the route of the Eroica Nova (an All Road cycling event in pure Eroica style). This beautiful route is for anyone looking for a unique and epic experience over the most beautiful white roads. You can choose the full route of 130km. or the 'short' version of 90km.
Unfortunately, it's already time to go home again. With a wonderful experience, new cycling friends and new insights richer. We hope you achieved your goals for this week and enjoyed it to the full! At the end of this week, we'll make sure you're back at the airport in time for your trip home.
