Bike adventure holiday on the Eroica roads continues to follow the events of our ATWS expert group (Adventure Travel World Summit). it’s October 13, 2018 and we are located in Pieve Sprenna agritourism in Buonconvento in southern Tuscany. The Pieve Sprenna farmhouse is an old country house set in a peaceful setting of vineyards and olive groves. The gardens and swimming pool with whirlpool system are surrounded by cypress and pine trees. At the restaurant, you can taste the delicious Tuscan cuisine, created with local genuine products. It is cheese, wine, oil, mushrooms and truffles in season. The rooms all enjoy a wonderful view of the Sienese countryside, which harmonizes the work of man and nature over the centuries.
A magical scenery with a corollary of enchanted villages, towns and cities. Buonconvento, Siena, Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Bagno Vignoni, beyond Siena and Florence. The best of the most iconic Tuscany seems here at your fingertips. Simone Cervo expert guide of Bikemood reaches us. The program is as simple as it is tempting: cycle on a noble stretch of the Eroica race. The EROICA is a real Woodstock with pedals where everything turns into black and white.
The Eroica is a condensation of the cycling of the past, the one of dust, of tantalising fatigue and of heroic sporting gestures. The bike adventure holiday on the Eroica Roads, takes place on the beautiful white roads mainly in the province of Siena. But before proceeding we resubmit our heroes.

This also marks the end of our bike adventure holiday on the Eroica roads.
