Great holiday - much better than expected
All days were great in different ways – but as an experienced mountain biker the final day was probably my favourite as it included a number of downhill sections and generally some slightly more technical sections uphill too.
Thank you, Skedaddle, for inventing this tour.
What an opportunity to see the Tuscan countryside in such an intimate way as cycling / mountain biking. How else could we get a guided tour – the best trails, lodging and meals all figured out for us?
When one guest lacked stamina the first day, Skedaddle got him an e-bike and for the rest of the days he did great. When another guest needed stitches a guide took her to the hospital in the van right away. These are examples of good service.
Gianfranco was excellent, friendly and efficient. He really cared that each one of us had a good time. Also Juditta and Stefano were excellent. Very good at their jobs and always smiling so they brought a friendly atmosphere to the trip.
Excellent riding – Hard to single out one day. The mix of technical and fitness was great and I particularly enjoyed the climbing (I know, I am weird). Great planning by the guides when the original route was not suitable due to the weather – we had a great day around Montalcino.
All the scenery was stunning
All the scenery was stunning, so all days were enjoyable. The last day in particular as it was the only real day with any singletrack was most enjoyable in terms of MTB riding.
Favourite day was the final day with best singletrack and with fantastic views of Pienza to finish the week’s riding.
A truly memorable trip and has already got us planning to revisit the area. The crew on the ground were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The cycling was a little harder than I imagined (as was the amount of wine we drank!!), but such great company and organisation/pace mean that it was still a holiday and not too much of a grind. The accomodation/food/routes were all stunning. Thanks so much. A dopo!
