Cycling outside of Siena

We are staying for one week at Frances Lodge early in July of this year. While we have a rental car reserved (whether we get our promised automatic is another story), we are also interested in the possibility of day trips by bike from Frances Lodge. We are both capable of 50 k round trips and are wondering if anyone can recommend routes. We appreciate we could be riding at perhaps the hottest time of the year and that we would have to likely contend with some good climbs.

Thanks in advance for any and all advice.

1) the Eroica route is all very well signed, split into 60-80 km day trips it is manageable!

2) a nice trip on the west side of Siena, all around the 'Montagnola: Monteriggioni, Strove, Scorgiano, Pievescola,Passo Incrociati, Ancaiano, Costalpino, Monteriggioni

3) Casole d'elsa, Mensano, Radicondoli to San Galgano, via Chiusdino

The best thing is to buy or borrow one or more of the excellent cycling route books for your area. Some of them are listed and reviewed here: greve-in-chianti.com/bicycling/bicycling-eng…
