Umbria & Tuscany Family Biking Tours

“What an amazing holiday!! From someone who hadn’t been on a bike for years and was a bit nervous about the week it way surpassed my expectations!”

The very best experiences are shared with loved ones.

Being able to cycle together is a wonderful experience and made all the more enjoyable by an eBike. Whether cycling with aged parents or young children, sharing the sights, aromas and sounds of rural Italy is a treasured memory in the making.

Stop at the road side restaurant for a light lunch on the sunny terrace or stop for a moment in the meadow to admire the view.

 

Your eBike & Equipment

Your e Bike is one of the best available. The Raleigh Motus is a step-through design to enable easy mount and dismount and is powered by the best pedal assist system from Bosch. Not to mention gel-saddles and suspended seat post, your bike is equipped with a handle bar mounted water bottle and rear view mirror.

Quiet Roads & Safety Ideal for Family Bike Holidays

“From the bike rides, to the hotels and the food, everything was perfect. E bikes are my new favourite thing! ”

The rural roads of Umbria and Tuscany are quiet country style roads. The Inspired ITALY itineraries are designed to keep you away from busier roads. And frankly, the traffic is rural Italy is very light even when its busy!

 

Italy ❤️Cyclists

Italian’s love cyclists. Cycling in Italy is one of the most popular pastimes. Drivers are used to cyclists and give them lots of room and consideration.

Of course, it only takes one idiot to spoil your day, so always act with reasonable caution.

You will be given a full briefing on road safety and etiquette before you depart.

Small Bikes for Small People

“..great cycling. eBikes were amazing and enabled the whole family with different levels of cycling experience and fitness to enjoy a really memorable holiday”

We have two small frame eBikes suitable for younger children. In Italy, a child can ride an eBike without restriction. The bikes are suitable for children from around 7/8 yrs to early teens. The real restriction is size, not age.

With these wonderful eBikes, your child can ride with you and between Mum and Dad.

Burley Bee Trailer for Very small People

The Burley Bee is ideal for small, young children. Carrying to children of up to 25Kg in comfort and safety. When we experimented wit our first trailer, our mechanic, Federico brought along his young son Nicolò for the test ride. You can see him on the photos above. He didn’t want to get out. He really enjoyed his test ride.

Fitness & Age

“All the pleasure without the pain of cycling - up hill and down dale without a thought or a groan so time to drink in the views and enjoy 'the warm wind in your hair”

We say, Leave the Lycra at Home because you do not need to be an enthusiast to really enjoy an eBike holiday but you do need to be reasonably fit and comfortable riding a bike.

Our oldest guest is Geoffrey who at 85 yrs long took on the Umbria 7 night eBike Safari as part of a guided group. You can see Geoffrey in the video.

Our advise to you is do take sometime to re-familiarise you ‘derrière’ with a bikes saddle. Few of our guests mention being fatigued but sore cheeks can be an issue!

 

You and Your Luggage

Each day your luggage magically appears at your destination. Usually, the magic has been managed by Brian or Gerry who are your back-up and support team. Not to mention our Inspired ITALY WhatsApp Virtual Guide. Each morning starts with a message and a short reminder of the day to come. It is a huge help in emergencies, not that we have many or even if you want to know what that particular ingredient is on your pizza!
