Riding with Cosimo began in 2012 when my wife and I moved to Florence. Our daughter married a Florentine 17 years ago, and we came to enjoy our grandchildren as they grow up. I was born in 1953, but am quite fit, and cycle daily here. While visiting I enjoyed learning the area and was astounded at how wonderful the cycling is. An old and respected part of the local culture, cyclists are welcomed on the roads.
Riding with Cosimo
I love the little roads in the countryside here. They are so fun and scenic. We will leave the hustle and bustle of Florence behind and enjoy a day in the Tuscan countryside. Stops for espresso, pastries, panini, or wine are welcomed and can be planned for.
If you wish to include a wine tasting or tour that can be arranged. If the group includes many different ability levels, I can arrange a van support vehicle so people can continue or take the rest of the day off as desired. Again, the only thing we try to do is give you a great day!

Participants have varied over the years, and no one should feel like they cannot enjoy a day of cycling with me. I have literally taken out everything from former UCI level professionals to honeymooners in flip flops. All we are trying to do is give you a wonderful, memorable day on the bike.
Typically, people rent bikes for the tours, and I work closely with a shop in town. Hybrid or touring bikes, as well as mountain and road bikes are available. The website is listed under services. I can help if needed.
The terrain is hilly here, so there is always some climbing involved. Come and enjoy a day or a week cycling with me!
Contact me to reserve a day. I take reservations on a first come, first served basis. Thank You. Mark Collins, email@example.com
