Make your way to the town of Fiesole outside Florence (a 20-minute bus ride from Florence) to meet your guide and get your bike and cycling equipment for the tour.
Set out from Fiesole with your guide, admiring the verdant green hills around you. Pedal past groves of olive trees and lanes lined with Tuscany's quintessential cypress trees leading to historic villas. Ride along secondary roads with less traffic and away from the bustle of the city.
