Guided Ride With Alison


Are you coming to Lucca (or Florence) and want to go for an unforgettable bike ride… or two, or three or four… but you don’t know where you’re going?

Just ride with me — I’m your dedicated domestique. Your trusty teammate. Your guiding light.

Guided Ride With Alison

Tell me about you or your group below (rather than separately over email). Include ride date(s), names, average annual mileage and if you'd like to stop for lunch.
This info helps me arrange a meeting point convenient for you.
I'll let you know if a similar ride request comes in. If you accept, you'll pay the per person rate and I'll refund the difference to your credit card.

Let the Good Times Roll

Consider me as your training partner, tour guide, or coach. Pop in your details (via the "Add to Basket" form) and I'll take care of the rest.

Up for a challenge? Keen on rolling hills, glorious views, and cappuccinos to your heart's content? Maybe a selfie with the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Count me in.

There is no rider too slow, too fast, or too old. I'm here to make your ride in Tuscany the highlight of your vacation.

Cycling Tips

She became my first cycling coach when I turned professional and has continued to guide, encourage, and challenge me throughout my career.


As a #newbie, it was an absolute privilege to take on cycling in the Italian country side with Alison.

Guided Tour

Is Alison a guide or a coach? Hard to say — I honestly think we got 2 for 1!

Guided Tour

My guided ride with Alison in the hills around Lucca was the most fun I've ever had on a bike!

I practically got a training camp and a guided tour!


Alison’s love of cycling and Italy is truly inspiring for both the somewhat new to cycling and the lifetime aficionado.

Tour Guide

Riding with Alison is a gift.


I had never ridden on a road bike before, but Alison was an incredible coach providing me with the best tips and tricks and within the first few kilometers, I felt very comfortable and confident on the road.

Guided Tour

She immediately put my fears to rest and led me through parts of the landscape that I would have surely missed left to my own resources.

Lucca to Siena

At the risk of hyperbole, riding from Lucca to Siena is a transcendent experience.
