Self-guided Eroica cycling Tour on a road bike
L’Eroica is an annual non-competitive cycling event which takes place since 1997 in the province of Siena, Italy. The theme of the event is vintage cycling, with participants using vintage (= pre-1987) bikes, accessories, and clothing, and the route often includes unpaved roads. It is held on the first Sunday of October.
The whole itinerary of the Eroica cycle event (plus part of Chianti Fiorentino) is tackled in three stages with stops in Siena, Radda in Chianti, and Buonconvento; the tours are difficult, both for the distances and the accumulated climbs and for the long parts on white roads that turn out to be more challenging to ride than asphalt.
Cycling in Italy is great, especially in the beautiful region of Tuscany and Chianti. You will discover the peaceful countryside roads with very little traffic when you climb the rolling hills of Chianti. Beyond all cycling activities, you also visit the vineyards of the Castello di Brolio
The race starts every year from Gaiole in Chianti and reaches Siena only after some kilometers. Since it is much easier to reach Siena by public transport it’s better to start the tour here. You will have time to visit this wonderful town on arrival day and on the last morning. Despite this change, the whole circuit will be completely done.
