Guided Ride With Alison

295575

Are you coming to Lucca 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.
