A training week with that Italian vacation touch takes you to Tuscany. There you can look forward to varied scenery with different landscapes each day. On quiet roads with very little traffic you will explore the area between Florence and Siena, with breaks in typical local bars and restaurants in picturesque medieval villages.

Besides the physical aspect, you will enjoy a real feelgood factor. We stay at the best hotel in the square, a 4-star hotel with a spacious spa area. And, at evening meal time, we can share our impressions of the day together over high-quality regional cuisine.

La Dolce Vita by bike!


The Guides

Jan – The Boss

quäldich-Guide Sahner Jan

Founder and CEO of Epic Climbs and, as such, on a very special mission - with his inimitable style he motivates his flock to perform great deeds in the saddle. Sometimes does great things in the evening programme, too!

Ricarda – The Newcomer


As a veteran of the Flensburg-Garmisch and Garmisch-Florence, Ricarda never missed an opportunity to swim in a lake. Now she's shaping up to be the Guide Discovery of 2017. How to recognise her: pink fingernails.

Otto – King of the dolce vita

quäldich-Guide Otto Gehrlein

Leading the relaxed group, he takes the wind with stoic calm. A typically good-humoured Palatinate native with incredible endurance.

Client Reviews

„Die Toskana ist landschaftlich ein Traum. Die Touren waren – wie man es bei quäldich kennt – gut geplant. Essen und Hotel hervorragend, der Aperitif nach dem Radeln ein Genuss. Die Gruppe war wieder sehr sympathisch. Da es so schön war, haben wir für nächstes Jahr wieder die Toskana gebucht. ”
