We offer all the services for your bike tours in TuscanyProfessional services and all our love for cycling for an unforgattable experience.
Anima Toscana offer daily and weekly bike rental, you can decide to rent this kind of bicycle:
Hybrid bike: the hybrid bike or trekking bike are simply an effective combination of both a road and a mountain bike. They have smooth tyres for high speed on road but are comfortable and strong enough for gravel and Tuscany white roads. Hybrids have a more upright riding position; great for visibility and control. If your commute is mainly on road but with some cycle trail action, this is what you’re looking for. These bikes are perfect for our one day bike tour.
Road bike: road bike or racing bike, this is your fastest way to ride to work, but not the most comfortable. Road bikes are designed purely for efficiency and speed on tarmac. They are very light and aerodynamic but unforgiving on rough or unmetalled roads. If you want your commute to be fast and the roads in your area are in great condition, a road bike is for you.
Mountain bike (or MTB): perfect for off road riding. They are great commuters because of low gears and an upright riding position. They are slower on road because of chunky tyres and suspension, but will inspire confidence on unpaved roads or gravel paths. A mountain bike is ideal if your commute is on rough roads with slippery cycle paths. Suggested for Via Francigena bike tour.
Electric bike (or e-bike): the e-bike is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. It's easier to use compare to the normal bikes, specially on steep hills. The e-bike is perfect for beginner cyclist.
Vintage bike or Eroica bike: with Anima Toscana you can rent vintage road bikes, built up to and including 1987. These are the only bikes accepted to participate to L'Eroica race. We suggest this bike for advanced cyclist.
