A 25 kms bike ride followed by a wine tasting in a local farm, discovering the Piana di Lucca and the rural areas that surround it, rich in olive groves and vineyards, where some of the best olive oils and wines of Tuscany are produced.
Starting from the city center, you will find yourself immersed in the quiet of Lucca’s countryside in the blink of an eye, riding up to the foot of the most evocative hills of the area, where you will visit a local farm that will offer a generous wine tasting and a snack based on typical products of Lucca.
The ride will take place along secondary roads, mainly flat and away from traffic, on trekking bikes or e-bikes, depending on your needs.
On request, it is possible to have the tour on Pinarello racing bikes (surcharge € 30 per person), or along a longer or hillier route.

Presentation of the host
Paladino and Pietro are two professional cycling guides certified by the Italian Cycling Federation with a great passion for cycling and their territory. In 2021 they conceived and started up a cycling education program called “Chronò Young”, a completely free of costs, introductory course for urban and sport cycling, open to children from 7 to 14 years old. In 2022, together with Puccini Experience A.P.S., they designed and organized the first edition of the “Ciclo Classica Puccini”, a cultural cycling event in which about 400 participants took part.
Paladino, 55, a lifelong cyclist, owns Chronò and has been managing it for more than 25 years. Chronò is a sales and rental bike shop of all types of bicycles (urban, trekking, road and e-bike) in the historical city center of Lucca. Here you can find some of the best Italian cycling brands, including Pinarello, Cinelli, Guerciotti, Ganna, and cycling clothing made in Italy and Switzerland, as Santini and Assos. His business has always stood out over the years for the passion with which it is carried out, following the concept of riding a bicycle as a means of living an experience: not surprisingly, over the years he has been leading the visitors of the Piana di Lucca during their bike rides, letting them experience the truest, most genuine side of our territory through unique experiences under a human, touristic and cycling point of view.
Pietro, 24, cyclist and bicycle mechanic with 7 years of experience, has been working in Paladino’s business for 5 years now as a mechanic and guide. In 2018, he had a work experience in the Netherlands, working in the bike shops of Het Zwarte Fietsenplan, the main bike sale&rental business in Amsterdam. His love for his land brought him back to Lucca, where he is now continuing his career as a mechanic and cycling guide at Chronò, dedicating himself in his spare time to the implementation of initiatives and projects which deal with the world of cycling.
