The way to breakaway
Eroica Nova Tuscany
18-25 June 2023
Eroica Nova stands for everything that makes cycling beautiful and terrible! The Eroica is the foundation for Strade Bianche. An event where challenge, beautiful white gravel roads, super company, a touch of heroism and delicious food come together in a unique way. This event will take place on Saturday 24 June 2023. Registration is open to anyone looking for a unique, epic experience and an amazing cycling holiday in Tuscany! From Sunday 18 June to Sunday 25 June, we will organise a gravel week entirely dedicated to Eroica Nova
Stay
We provide a delicious and complete stay. Each day we start with a full cyclists' breakfast, there is sports nutrition during the ride, a delicious aperitif after the ride and dinner in the evening. We stay at Bike Villa Pive a Salti in Buoncovento in the beating gravel heart of Tuscany. Pieve a Salti is in a beautiful location, right on the famous gravel lanes. This place breathes in every aspect of its rich history. You share your bedroom and bathroom with another package participant, though you do have your own single bed at your disposal. Bike Villa Pieve a Salti is an authentic Tuscan agriturismo with several flats and excellent cycling facilities. Here you can fully enjoy your cycling holiday!
Nova Eroica
This week is all about Eroica Nova on Saturday 24 June. The programme is designed so that all you have to do is ride and enjoy! We prepare you optimally for this gravel feast; we provide beautiful challenging gravel routes on GPX so everyone can cycle at his or her level. With these routes, we already explore a large part of the Eroica routes. There are 3 distances on Saturday, namely 130km (2000hm), 90km (1200hm) and 60km (750hm). You can bring your own gravel bike or rent one through us. There will always be a bike coach/mentor on the bike during the rides who will share tips & tricks with you in addition to routes and information. During the rides, we have our own support car at our disposal. Here you can store your extra gear and we will bring repair gear, sports nutrition and drinks for the road. It will be a week to enjoy to the max!

Programme

We have put together a beautiful, challenging and educational programme for you. Below is a description for each day!

Buonconvento route

Arrival dayDay 2

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.

Monterroni D'Arbia route

Gravel dayDay 2

After a delicious breakfast, today's route is all about getting used to the environment, altitude and gravel lanes. Together we cycle a nice gravel route to Monteroni D'Arbia and back. This route is also part of the Eroica Nova. After dinner tailored to cyclists, there will be a workshop on nutrition.

Siena route

Gravel dayDay 3

This 'must-do' ride we'll take 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 is the opportunity for a massage.

Pieve a Salti route

Recovery dayDay 4

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 several routes are 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 up to you! In the afternoon and evening we will hold individual talks to go over the "race plan" for Saturday.

Torrenieri route

Gravel dayDay 5

This day is pre-eminently dedicated to enjoyment. We ride through the Torrenieri wine region over an undulating landscape with 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 and Saturday when it's D-day!

Eroica Nova "village"route

Recovery dayDay 6

Today we will collect the start ticket and participant pack. It is also a perfect time to taste atmosphere at the Eroica Nova "village" and the start/finish in Buonconcento. For those who want to loosen up their legs, there is the possibility to ride to the start on your bike, relax for a few metres and put everything on edge for tomorrow's big day! For those who want a rest, there will be the opportunity to collect the start tickets by car. The rest of the day will be all about resting and preparing everything for D-day!

Eroica Nova

D-DayDay 7

Today is D-Day! Perhaps one of the most beautiful and spectacular gravel events you will ride in your life; the Eroica Nova! A day you are not going to forget, just because of the breath-taking landscapes and unique atmosphere. Whether you go for the 130km or the 90km distance, it will be enjoyment and suffering all in one! This week of gravel fun will end afterwards with a delicious BBQ!

Back home day

Departure dayDay 8

Unfortunately, it's already time to go home again. With a wonderful experience, new cycling friends and enriched by new insights. 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.
