The perfect blend of riding and relaxation

Tuscany is an epicentre of art, fashion, food and of course, wine. It's also one of the most beautiful places in the world to ride a bike. From our converted 8th century Etruscan village, owned by winemakers in the Gallo Nero region of Chianti, you'll explore the rolling hills, roads and gravel tracks made famous by the Giro and Strade Bianche races.

Who is it for?

Rapha Travel pioneered the idea of the cycling Retreat, a luxurious break where the emphasis is as much on unwinding and enjoying stunning surroundings as it is on challenging yourself on the bike. With exclusive accommodation in which to stretch out, and the best regional specialities, local wines and culture, the Retreats set a standard that other trip providers cannot match. Rapha Retreats are always based in one stunning location, for the ultimate in stress relief, and you can tailor-make the riding itinerary to suit you. Choose 150km over the high mountains, or a gentle coffee spin before an afternoon of relaxation; guided or solo, it’s up to you. Non-riding partners are welcomed along to share the experience with you.

How Hard is it?

Retreats suit all types of riders, except for those who want packed days and relentless riding. Although you will have the chance to do big days in the saddle and test yourself on amazing roads, your time can be as demanding or as gentle as you like: wine tastings, market trips, swimming and massages are examples of indulgences that are positively encouraged. You’ll return home fitter and happier, and recharged in mind and body.

FAQ

Can I bring a non-riding companion?

We welcome non-riding partners on our Retreats, but not on other trips.

Am I strong enough for the trip?

All our trips are physically demanding, but some are harder than others. Retreats are among the most relaxing. Our guides, soigneurs and mechanics will support every rider to go beyond their usual level of riding. Each individual trip is rated for difficulty.
