“…what truly distinguished the trip was the camaraderie of carefully chosen like minded enthusiasts and the warmth of the reception from Joao’s Italian neighbors…We were treated as family and experienced the pleasures of the roads, the countryside, the table and the wine cellar as locals.”
It all started with a basic idea that was so simple that it fit into a tweet:
“Thinking of doing a ride, eat, drink EOY bash here in Chianti October 12-18th.” said Joao after a long season with the Cervelo TestTeam. “Share my favorite things about this place. Who’s interested?”
Four guys signed up immediately for a trip that was then just four weeks away. It boiled down to two main activities: riding and eating. There were no security deposits, no liability waivers, just twitter and as one guest put it, “a huge amount of trust.”
We’ve come a long way since that first trip but the spirit of the original adventure is still at the core of what we do. Share the most iconic roads Chianti has to offer, pair that with amazing food and wine and then invite a few friends along to create the best cycling experience you can have.
Whether it’s being pampered by a real professional soigneur, watching our mechanic take care of your bike or riding next to one of your cycling heroes we have created the most iconic trips to give you an experience that will be worthy of a check on your bucket list. See you on the road.
