The white roads of Tuscany. We have watched the pros at Strade Bianca and now is our chance to fly over the same roads of this unique race. Nova Eroica is an event that brings a competitive twist to the well know vintage bike events of the Eroica brand. Six timed sections of varying length let you have a real crack at the gravel but the sections between ridden at a casual pace with mates, brings us the perfect mix of social and competition. Well stocked feed stations and a fun afterparty makes for an incredible environment. We are offering you a 5 day trip of riding in the heart of Tuscany with the Nova Eroica event the crowning moment of the trip. This trip is a mix of mostly road with some Tuscan gravel, though the dirt roads of the area are very hard packed and quite smooth, rideable on a road bike and heaps of fun!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Arriving into Florence we will be there to pick you up and take you to our first accommodation of the trip, just on the outskirts of town but already into the incredible Chianti region. From there, we will do our first ride heading towards our beautiful Agritourismo in Asciano. Over the next few days, we will combine a perfect amount of riding, good food and a splash of the local wines before taking on our main event on Sunday. A good dinner that evening before making our way back to Florence on Monday morning to catch our flights home.
This trip is limited to 10 riders, so book quick!
