Countless hours saved, less traffic and zero guesswork:


This guide made our trip stress free. We planned our bike rentals, lodging, food, and 10 days of riding using only this guide . . . saved us countless hours of research. The riding in Lucca is world class, but it's not easy to navigate and figure out on your own. The guide and GPS routes made it a breeze and we were confident we were hitting the best routes every day. Well worth it.

As someone who thoroughly enjoys researching and planning routes, I never thought Alison's services would be as valuable as they are! Thanks to her thousands of hours riding through a spider's web of roads in all of Tuscany, we discovered gems I would have never found on my own. From planning 230km+ epic rides for me to my fourteen-year-olds first road ride, having the "in" on the best cafes, restaurants, and most importantly, gelato is... priceless.

I come from San Cassiano di Controne (close to Bagni di Lucca) and live in London. I visit 15 days each year. There's a dense network of roads surrounding Lucca (and Italy in general) that's impossible to know in its entirety without living in the area. Alison's guide takes out all the guesswork and has shown me roads/routes I never knew existed. The convenience and stress reduction this guide offers is a no-brainer whether you ride alone (like me) or with your friends.
