BICI ITALIA L'Eroica originale tour

Our annual signature event for all cycling enthusiasts! L'Eroica, is a period cyclotouristic rally on the infamous Stradi Bianche (white gravel roads) of the Chianti region.  Truly a unique event that takes a step back in time to the heroic early days of cycling. Amazing atmosphere and camaraderie for race participants as well as spectators. While this event focuses on cycling's past, it is very much an event for the modern day cyclist thanks to the massive swap meet and thousands of cycling enthusiast that participate. Come celebrate the 'heroic' days of cycling and experience an event of a lifetime!

We offer full trips that will get you 'geared up' on the strade bianche of L'Eroica before the event or simple DIY accommodations. Our location, less than a kilometer from the gravel roads and in close proximity to Gaiole, makes our B&B an ideal home base. Our on-site bike shop, restaurant, apartment-style accommodations, also make for a hassle-free & enjoyable stay.

Join us for our 12th year at this amazing event. It's the highlight of our year!
