Bikers love the Maremma. The region offers well maintained trails through forests and along the coast, with full flow and lots of more technical courses. And there’s much more for discoverer spirits: a varied range of tours lead you through the breath-taking landscape with stopovers at stunning viewpoints and in historical spots, with famous wineries and the best addresses for local cuisine along the way. The mild Mediterranean climate is perfect for long days in the saddle and, as the finishing touch to a full day, the sea is always there for you. Glistening in the sun, the cool waters and remote beaches that you can often only reach on foot or by bike beckon you for a refreshing dip.
Lush green hills climbing to an almost alpine 2000 meters above sea-level, overlooking the infinite expanse of sea, true Italianità – the Maremma is a biker’s paradise that you simply must experience.
Sleep in the dunes in the shade of the ancient pines
The perfect point of departure to discover Tuscany by bike is the Reka Holiday Resort at Golfo del Sole in Follonica. There are over 270 modern apartments, hotel rooms and bungalows with sea-view to choose from. The well-kept facility covering 100 hectares and consistently geared to sustainability offers all you need for wonderful biking holidays by the sea – your own sandy beach, pools, bars and a very varied gastronomical selection right on your doorstep. And, of course, there’s plenty of space for some privacy to enjoy a refreshing glass of wine as you relax and sift through memories of a magnificent day’s ride.
Guided tours and professional guides
In addition to tours on your own, you have the possibility of taking advantage of all the experience of the top trained guides in Golfo del Sole, under the supervision of former elite mountain biker, Simon Zmoos, and 1996 road world champion, Barbara Heeb, who know the “locals” and the region like the back of their hands. They have quite a few insider tips to share with their bike holiday guests – the lively supporting programme is part of this!
Bike station with all the trimmings
Repair shop, washing area, lock-up cycle room – bike fans are enthusiastic about the bike station and its comprehensive infrastructure at Golfo del Sole which enables them to enjoy a carefree biking experience. If you prefer not to bring your own bike with you to Italy, high-quality bikes are available from the Swiss brand Thömus on a daily or weekly rental basis.
