Eroica in 2 stages

The whole itinerary of the Eroica cycle event is tackled in two stages with stop in Siena and Pieve a Salti, along one of the most beautiful white road; the tours are very difficult, both for the distances and the accumulated climbs and for the long parts on white roads that turn out to be more challenging to ride than asphalt.
The race starts every year from Gaiole in Chianti and reaches Siena only after some kilometers. Since it is much easier to reach Siena by public transport we chose to start our tours here. So our guests will also have a time to visit this wonderful town on arrival day and on last morning. Despite this change the whole circuit is will be completely done.

Stages

Independent arrival in Siena
Day 1
Independent arrival in Siena and settling into the hotel. Siena can be reached by local trains from Pisa and Florence, where Tuscany's main airports are. Private minibus transfers to other destinations and airports can be arranged on request.
Pieve a Salti -  Radda in Chianti - Siena*
Day 3
lenght: 119 km 
accumulated climb: 1900 m
We turn northwards and head into the Crete Senesi: here the hills are mostly bare and gently undulating as far as the eye can see, dotted with lone trees and isolated farmhouses on the hilltops, and in places clay turns the soil blueish-grey, giving the landscape a lunar feel. There are so few buildings in sight that man seems almost absent. This is perhaps the moment when we feel the most "heroic", in close contact with the land. We will pass Asciano, Castelnuovo Berardenga and a few other towns on the way to the Chianti region, our beloved vineyards In the Chianti area it is easy to come across authentic and fascinating little towns such as Radda and Gaiole in Chianti, and famous wineries like Castello di Brolio, jewel of the properties of Ricasoli family, beautiful views which will guide us up to Siena...
*available on request a shorter stage of 69 km and accumulated climb of 900 m, skipping Chianti area
 
Siena-Montalcino-Pieve a Salti
Day 2
lenght: 87 km 
accumulated climb: 1600 m
We leave Siena riding happily on local and white roads along the gentle hills south of town to reach Buonconvento: the second part of the route can be circular, passing through Montalcino at the southernmost point, then taking in Val d'Orcia before heading back on unpaved roads to our wonderful accommodation lost between "Crete Senesi" and Val d'Orcia, a perfect place where relaxing in the swimming pool or simply on a meadow, far from the "civilization" (and taste great Tuscan food). The most challenging tretch of the day will be the long but enjoyable ascent to Montalcino, a land devoted to producing the excellent Brunello wine which is a large part of everyday life here.
