    Golden sunbeams, aromas with spicy and fruity notes, cypresses and expanses of vineyards: this awaits you in the famous Chianti region. And if that's not enough, you can venture out on a very special bike ride on the white roads of Tuscany, following part of the permanent route of L'Eroica.In case you haven't heard of it yet, L’Eroica is a cycling event for fans of vintage racing bikes. Once a year, around 7,000 heroic cyclists, complete with wool jerseys and leather shoes, meet to pay homage to cycling of yesteryear. Although largely unpaved, the routes can also be tackled with a racing bike, as long as it is equipped with robust and sufficiently wide tires (25 mm and up). Obviously the gravel bike is the most suitable.This loop tour only partially follows the route of L'Eroica, whose original route is over 200 kilometers long. Your adventure starts and ends in Pianella, a town east of Siena. The campsite is about ten kilometers away: it is therefore possible to reach the start of the tour by bike and thus add a few kilometers to the adventure.The tour extends for about 60 kilometers north of Siena and leads to the discovery of countless villages that lend themselves to pleasant breaks. Along the way, you will be able to fully enjoy the Tuscan landscape, which has always been an icon of beauty and a source of inspiration for artists and vacationers. At sunset you can treat yourself to a good glass of Chianti or Montepulciano to end the day in the best possible way.
