Touring Lucca By Bike

Good news for any biking enthusiasts planning a visit to Lucca between the beginning of June and the end of September. The town hall has collaborated with a local biking tour company called Tuscany Ride a Bike, to create really cool guided bike tours of some of the most scenic parts of Lucca and its surrounding countryside.

The guided 3 hour tour costs 25 euro per person and includes the cost of the rental of a mountain bike and related gear (helmet, repair kit), a guide and a technical assistent. An average of 30 kilometers, some a bit hilly, will be covered in the 3 hours, so best to be somewhat fit and comfortable on a bike if you'd like to give it a try.

Here are the two proposed itineraries with relative departure times:
