Training Week in Tuscany (Colle di Val d'Elsa)

Experience the unique heart of Italy – 5/05-12/05/2018

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 Jan Sahner

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!

Klaus – The Saxon from Lago

quäldich-Guide Klaus Hoffmann

Since Klaus moved to Lago Maggiore for family reasons, he's been unstoppable on the bike. On his first Epic Climbs trip as a guide, he's definitely far more than a linguistic support for the team.
