Lunch is optional. Gusto Cycling Offer a wide range of Tuscany cycling options to suit all tastes. Tuscany has it all, History, Art, Culture, amazing gastronomy and great wine! plus the added bonus of enjoyable cycling through its varied countryside and medieval places which have hardly changed for over 600 years!! Its no surprise that Tuscany is so popular and draws people from walkers and cyclists. Its undulating countryside, hilltop medieval towns with rewarding and far reaching views is a satisfying end to great days cycling as your own leisurely pace.

After deciding to travel to Tuscany Italy this summer, I did a google search and found Gusto Cycling. My friend and I couldn't be happier with the choice and It couldn't have been easier working with Marco to put together a personalized itinerary for 4 days of cycling through the Chianti Region. Marco put together wonderful cycling routes (based upon my specifications - medieval villages, breathtaking vistas, wineries, and countryside) and a fabulous choice of hotels for us. He met us before our trip, was there for us throughout our trip and always checked in to see how we were doing, and met with us after to hear all about our adventure. And what a wonderful adventure it was! The memories will last a lifetime. Thank you Marco Mori, you are the best!

My brother and I had a great time over the four days in Alta Badia and in no small part thanks to the well organised package Marco Mori of Gusto Cycling tour put together for us! The hotel Lüch da Pcëi was excellent and the staff super friendly. However, riding back to the hotel I never looked forward to the last 30 meters @ 9% :-) The Maratona itself was quite an experience and proved to be a serious test of one’s abilities. The first climb Campolongo was somewhat frustrating due to the number of people as I had to walk at least once. I also took care on the decent as Marco rightly pointed out in his email (cheers!).

All in all, a most memorable event not to mention the breathtaking scenery which at times seemed quite surreal!

Now to convince my wife to join me next year!

Gusto Cycling provided top-class arrangements, frequent email updates leading up to the event, various tips, training plans, etc!! Needless to say, I'm more than happy to give Gusto Cycling my highest recommendation!!

Until next time/year??

Marco did a great job organizing the trip. The hotel he booked was great and I really appreciated the regular and quick communications. As this was my first time riding the Maratona, the tips and extra information he provided in advance were very helpful. I very much enjoyed the experience.

Marco organised our trip to watch and participate in the strada Bianche and spend the rest of the week exploring Pescia and the cycling it has to offer. Marco was very flexible to our needs and circulmstances and he had to be, starting with a day and half delay due to snow both in UK and Pisa airport but marco flexed the holiday and we traveled directly to Sienna. The guide and B&B marco arranged was excellent staying with his contact Andrea and family we were perfectly located for the strada. The week started with a wet reccy on the white roads and the following day we watched the pros. Andrea and Marco obviously knew the area well and we were able to see the epic 2018 runnign of the race from many vantage points and get back in time to get great spots on the final climb to watch the drama. The day of the sportive was well organised, we arrived early got setup and its was a great challange, the showers after the event whilst not keen were a great decission and the pasta party was very good. Problems with the Cassa Nona Heating meant we moved to one of Marcos contacts and stayed elsewhere but for the rest of the week . again early season (Feb) we were the first to stay there in 2018 so you have to expect these things and Marco was excelent lookign afters us.
