Dating een biker
We had a lunch with typical products of the region, with all kind of wonderful cheese, ham and salami, very tasty.
As far as style is concerned, do your best to avoid letting other products, such as gel or hairspray, come in contact with the garment.Massimo is a very special person and we wouldn't hesitate to do this again.We're young, we're fit and we're Dutch, so we can cycle. The equipment is excellent and he outfits you with everything you can think of, including lights, repair kits, etc. Thanks to the English-speaking woman who helped us reserve the time.Furthermore, Massimo, the owner, "upgrades" your trip with any additional equipment you can't / won't imagine you need (rain coats, locking instruments, flashlights, first aid kit and more), detailed explanation and recommendation on routes, impressive color maps and even a bottle of wine waiting for you upon your return to the shop by the end of the day. We had a very kind and helpful guide (Willemijn), who lives in the area. Not everybody in our group was used to ride an ebike, but this was no problem.Willemijn helped where needed, in a very kind and patient way.Massimo provided us with everything we needed, the gear, maps and directions and even some bottles of water. Getting lost was our fault, but when we didn't show up where he expected us to be, he left his lunch to track us down.
He is a warm and welcoming man, really interested and passionate about his country and region. He then followed us all the way back to the shop, stopping to help our daughter fix her bike when her chain broke.
At least as good at the thickest of down jackets from the wide assortment Nelly has online.
If you want to rock the biker style, you also have plenty of choices when it comes to color.
Still, Massimo advised to use E-Bikes and boy was he right. We got a little lost on the initial part of the route, somehow he knew and should up in his van to get us on the right track. Honestly, I don't think he makes any money, I truly believe he does this because of the joy he gets from giving. Massimo was particularly flexible regarding the time we needed to start, arranged at the last minute.
Using e-bikes to see Tuscany is great, you can go up any hill even some cars are having problems with, you can go 60 km/h or faster or you can just take your time and enjoy the view. It is worth coming here to just meet Massimo, the owner and operator. There was no guide so he gave us a map and directed us.
The scenery is breathtaking and the sunset just amazing.
