DIY Guide to Lucca


Here's your shortcut to livin' la vita Lucca. Tap into tried-and-true advice backed by thousands of kilometers, year in and year out.

From beginner to advance, this do-it-yourself guide reveals the roads less traveled and the art of soaking in the Tuscan sunshine.

Solo, with family or a few friends, hit the roads with a complete route library uploaded to your GPS device. From casual rides to epic mountain passes, discover places locals spend years finding.

Consider this DIY Guide as a North Star. You’ll find ideal areas to stay with wow, bike-friendly accommodations. Scan -> select -> book because who doesn't love easy vacations?

You won't find solid routing or handpicked recommendations anywhere else—not on free mapping sites, Strava, or Tripadvisor forums. Thoughtfully designing free time is a creative pursuit and nothing beats on-the-ground experience in real time, year-round.

Delivered digitally and viewed on your laptop, tablet, and Ride with GPS mobile app, you'll get:

  • 15+ cycling route library starting/finishing from the gates of Lucca’s wall
  • Route descriptions with photos and ideas for lunch, coffee, and gelato stops
  • Turn-by-turn voice navigation
  • Where to stay in Lucca’s historic center or just outside the wall
  • Places to eat: aperitivo bars, restaurants, gelato and coffee shops
  • Things to do and local events you won’t want to miss out on
  • How to get around including from Pisa and Florence airport
  • Responsive email support for questions related to the guide

Note: You'll need  European maps uploaded to your GPS device to optimize navigation. The PDF guide walks you through the steps if needed.

All sales final. I've ridden every road, tried each restaurant, and update the guide every six months. In other words, I put in A+ effort and I'm sure you'll agree.
