My bike tour in Tuscany (Italy)

From the 17th to 25th of May, I have been to the beautiful Tuscany (Italy) to ride my bike for seven days straight, riding a total of 811 kilometers through the hills.

I´ve published two articles on the Futurumshop blog. The first article was about my preparation and the second article was about the trip itself. I was really keen to use a GPS in Italy, so I was lucky that Futuromshop provided me a GPS from Garmin, the Edge Touring Plus Europa. It was a great addition to my rides due to the data about my current position when I was attacking hills and which direction I had to take in an unfamiliar area.

A picture says more than a thousand words, so I have made a collection of my favorite photo´s that will give an impression of my adventure.

A challenging road. Again on of the weird things you come across in a trip like this. Seeing so many things in such a short time.
