The tour difficulty is primarily a subjective factor, determined by different elements and from never equal situations.
The most important of them is the effort: the more the climbs are high, the more effort is made.
But climbs are not all the same: they can be more or less steep and of variable length.
To get an idea of how many climbs are waiting for you on a tour, you should check the "elevation gain uphill". The higher the "elevation gain uphill" is the higher the number of climbs you have to face.
Another element that can make a tour more or less difficult is the climate and in particular - in summer time - the exposure to the sun.
Doing the same path in autumn or spring with 20/25 degrees is completely different if done in summer with 35 degrees.
In addition to the temperature, even the humidity, the presence of shade and the road surface can increase (even in the worst cases) the difficulty of 20%.
For this reason, there is no a unique answer to the question 'how difficult is a course' is; everybody has its own parameters and sensations that also depend on your training level, so the difficulty index is considered an indicative value.
To help you choosing a guided tour, in addition to the degree of difficulty, we ranked the tours according to the following parameters: Landscape, Nature, Art and History.
The trail winds through panoramic paths from which you can admire some of the most beautiful landscapes of the Tuscan countryside.
The tour takes place predominantly in wooded areas or crosses areas of important naturalistic interest such as parks or nature reserves.
Art and history
During the tour you will find places of great historical and artistic interest such as medieval villages, abbeys, churches and castles.
If you want to know more about the history and culture of wine in Tuscany, you cannot miss this tour; a journey through the scents and colours of the countryside, surrounded by beautiful landscapes and vineyards, where they produce high quality wines such as the Chianti di Montespertoli Docg.
We will ride up and down the gentle hills, passing through vineyards, olive groves, cypress trees typical of the Tuscan landscape, and where history has left its mark: as the beautiful church of San Pietro in Mercato, the Castello di Poppiano, and if you want to know about the history, culture and traditions of the wine of this area we can visit the Wine Museum (ticket not included in tour price).
We will reach "Lucardo", an ancient fortified medieval village of which today remains the old gateway, some houses and the small church of St. Martino and Giusto, and than we will return to Castle of Sonnino where immersed in the sweet perfumes, the history and the traditions of wine we will rest by visiting the ancient cellars and tasting its excellent wines.
Then we will live a unique experience; we will go on top of the castle tower, where we will enjoy a spectacular view of the countryside of Montespertoli.
Important things to know before you book a tour
Our guided mountain bike tours take place mainly on beautiful off-road routes, allowing us to reach places unreachable by any other means and to enjoy unique landscapes in contact with nature.
However, although they are relatively easy, they may have some more technical features that require a bit of technique when riding a mountain bike.
For these reasons, to participate in a guided tour, whether you choose to do it with a traditional or an electric mountain bike, it is necessary - in addition to being in good physical condition - to be able to ride a bicycle on dirt roads and to know the use of the gear and brakes.
- Always choose clothing suitable for the type of route and weather conditions. The use of slippers or sandals is not allowed.
- The water bottle is not supplied. It is therefore important to have a backpack to carry 1 or more bottles of water.
- During the tours, the guide must not be exceeded.
- Given the length of the tour, to participate, we recommend a good level of training, spirit of sacrifice and ability to pedal for long distances uphill.
- Read also our tips to ride safely.
For this reason, a liability assumption will be required during the booking process of a guided tour.
