Anima Toscana offers daily and weekly bike rental, you can decide to rent the following type of bicycles:
Trekking bike: trekking bikes are a combination between a road bike and a mountain bike. A trekking bike offers smooth tyres for high speed on road but are comfortable and strong enough for Tuscany gravel. Trekking bikes has a more upright riding position; great for visibility and control. If your commute is mainly on road but with some cycle trail action, this is what you’re looking for. These bikes are also perfect for the one day bike tour.
Road bike: road bike or racing bike, this is your fastest way to ride to work, but not the most comfortable. Road bikes are designed purely for efficiency and speed on tarmac. They are very light and aerodynamic but unforgiving on rough or unmetalled roads. If you want your commute to be fast and the roads in your area are in great condition, a road bike is for you.
Gravel bikes: More durable than a road bike and much faster than a mountain bike. Gravel bicycles present an interesting option for the riders who want to travel on ride on gravel road or off road. These are the best bikes to complete the Eroica route or Strade Bianche Gravel tour.
Mountain bike (or MTB): perfect for off road riding. They are great commuters because of low gears and an upright riding position. They are slower on road because of chunky tyres and suspension, but will inspire confidence on unpaved roads or gravel paths. A mountain bike is ideal if your commute is on rough roads with slippery cycle paths. Suggested for Via Francigena bike tour.
Electric bike (e-bike): the e-bike is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. It's easier to use compare to the normal bikes, specially on steep hills. The e-bike is perfect for beginner cyclist.
Vintage bike or Eroica bike: with Anima Toscana you can rent vintage road bikes, built up to and including 1987. These are the only bikes accepted to participate to L'Eroica race. We suggest this bike for advanced cyclist.
