Join BICI ITALIA and Phil Tinstman for 'il secondo'
September 23-30, 2018
The second annual Phil Tinstman epic Tuscany cycling week, or 'IL SECONDO', promises to provide amazing road and gravel rides, chef-prepared meals, wine and birra, sunset pizza, and sightseeing sans cycling gear. It's a week to 'live like an Italian cyclist' and enjoy all that Tuscany has to offer.
Together with Phil, BICI ITALIA has crafted a premium, concierge-style trip guaranteed to be a trip of a lifetime. Whether you've cycled in Italy before or are looking to cross it off your bucket list, this custom trip vows to be an unique experience.
You will stay as our guest at a typical (but far from ordinary!) Tuscan villa agriturismo B&B . The kind of place were Mama makes handmade pasta & pastries, were the house wine really IS the house wine (and designated Chianti Classico at that!), and your insalata misti is plucked fresh from the garden after you order it. Buonissimo!
After a ride, you'll clean up, enjoy some antipasti and visit neighboring towns & cities for site seeing, wine tasting tours, castles & local markets. The evenings are spent relaxing at your 'Italian Home', watching the sun set & enjoying delicious, authentic Tuscan meals.
September is a premium time to ride in Tuscany with ideal weather conditions, and most likely, you will get to partake in wine harvest.
