With almost 50 kilometres of unpaved road, the long GeoGravel Tuscany route is a romantic challenge between Mother Nature and her daredevil explorers. The entire route is easy to ride, and the only difficulties are dictated by some sloping sections or by the road surface, which can be gravel in places. Among the grey roads that cross the hinterland towards the sea, the route runs through several nature reserves and a large part of the most unexplored territory in the Val di Cecina.
The turning point of this adventure is undoubtedly Bolgheri, a worldwide reference point for Tuscan culture and excellent wine such as Ornellaia and Sassicaia. The ancient village, sung by the poet Giosuè Carducci, develops around a medieval castle surrounded by vineyards and is a privileged spot for a tasty break between one dirt track and another. Ten hours in the saddle to reconnect with the most authentic part of one's nature, amidst the scents of the Mediterranean scrub and the salty air coming from the sea.
