Welcome to the first of its kind in Italy, the Unpaved Tuscany tour is about to start and we are all ready to ride, learn and enjoy, because after all, it's what we love doing.
The guys are full of energy and ready for ADVENTURE!
The day starts with refreshing rain, but that doesn't stop the smiles on these warriors' faces. We do a short ride down to the training ground and begin our day with some exercises, it's all about weight balance!
The afternoon takes us through some beautiful roads and amazing forests up in the mountains before returning to Barga for a well deserved dinner.
As expected, a bit of rain to come our way and a long day to see plenty of things. First stop, Grotta del Vento, or cave of wind. Very cool cave formation used as a fridge back in the day.
After a couple of hard days between the riding academy and the first ride through into Emilia Romagna, we continue through this beautiful region of Italy, the longest straight might just be 50m long as Mickey well mentioned!
Day rises with more rain, but high spirits. We're looking forward to our ride as it is full of unpaved sections. Some fog here and a temporary river there don't stop us from having a great ride.
After a long week riding through Tuscany and Emilia Romagna we cone to our last day. Two groups would leave with both guides to get to see some beautiful scenery. This region has so much to offer. Some went up to Passo Muraglione to enjoy a coffe in one of Pablo's favourite places.
