  • Difficulty Level
    Level 5
    X

    Level 1: Occasional

    Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.

    Walking – 6-10 km (4-6 mi.) a day on country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.

    Level 2: Recreational

    Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.

    Walking – 8-12 km (5-7 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.

    Level 3: Enthusiast

    Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort.

    Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.

    Level 4: Avid

    Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.

    Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) over terrain that varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.

    Level 5: Expert

    Biking – 50-60 km (30-45 mi.) a day over both level and tougher, hillier terrain with multiple 100 km (62 mi.) options. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.

    Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over fairly hilly terrain offering lots of challenges. Routes are along high meadow paths and/or well-maintained cliffside or alpine trails, with a few steep ascents to make you feel invigorated.

Experience the Strade Bianche route

While we’ve been travelling to Tuscany for decades, this is the first release in our challenging trip series. We’ve paired famous race trails with the crème de la crème of gravel bikes. The payoff is not just the challenge of riding along gravel with heart-pounding ascents and thrilling descents, but also the unbelievable places it takes you.

Activity Level What’s Included Gear Extend Your Trip

Level 5

The riding on this trip is aimed at the confident and strong rider who likes to climb! Some of the hills can be avoided with the occasional transfer, and we will be riding a mixture of gravel and paved roads. The bikes are superb on both surfaces but if you bring your own pedals then MTB shoes are the best option in case you need to walk a section.

What’s included? Everything you need. Plus everything you’d
want. Plus a few things you never knew you wanted ‘til you got them.

In a word: everything. In ninety words? Signature B&R guides; local experts; unique, unforgettable biking and walking routes; private tours; authentic local cuisine; lessons and demonstrations; local artisanal wines; wine tastings; all victuals and libations; all the endorphins you can handle; new insight; interesting, fun and like-minded travel companions; a feeling of total freedom. In short: an extraordinary, hassle-free journey of discovery.

The Bikes

This particular gravel bike has taken design to the next level. Each curve and detail contributes to making the Exploro 3T an exceptional full-aero bike. Why does full-aero matter? Well, as our expert friends say at 3T, it helps you go slow faster. The sleek, aerodynamic frame helps you cut through the air making for an incredible ride. The geometry and tire size ensures the ride’s as comfortable on gravel as it is on asphalt. Of course, we’ll also equip you with a helmet, bike computer, and water bottle.
