Why Siena so famous in the world of international cycling?
Maybe it's for the most compelling race that opens the season the first weekend of March: the stradebianche or for the famous Eroica, first weekend of October, a unique competition with vintage bikes and Nostalgic atmospheres of cycling's great champions.
The fact remains that in recent years they have become unmissable events for all bike lovers who, unlike many other competitions, have the chance to cycle the same routes throughout the year.
So, come on, you just have to organise a weekend of cycling in Siena.
Spring is definitely the best time of year, when the longer days combined with a not-too-hot temperature make an easy game.
If we then add the beauty of the Crete Senesi and the Val d'Orcia in this season, even your pics will be amazing!
The Hotel is the most important choice in order to optimise time.
Borgo Grondaie is strategically located just a few kilometres from both Chianti and the Crete Senesi. So you will cycle in the very heart of Tuscany, making easier reaching the most beautiful roads. Moreover you might have the chance to do different itineraries in several days without changing hotel.
