Frequently asked questions:

How many people will be in the group?

Since we believe smaller groups mean better experiences, we usually travel in groups of two to ten people.

We are also offering private tours. The minimal number of people for an individual group tour is only 2 (tw0). For more info please contact us info@bolgherilocals.com


Who will be guiding us?

The tours are led by experienced and certified local cycling guides, who know the tour locations like the back of their hands. They will be there for you with their experience and skills any time you’ll need them. They’ll try to make every tour more exciting with the right stories.


What about food?

All of our daily tours are planned with stops, where we can find local culinary specialties.


I’m not a PRO cyclist. Can I join?

Our cycling tours are suitable both for those who cycle regularly and those who take a cycling trip occasionally. We use electric bikes on our tours to turn even the most difficult trips into an enjoyable journey for those with less stamina or technical skills. Plus, we adjust every tour to your skills and abilities.


What should I bring on a tour?

Most importantly, you should wear comfortable sports clothes (sport shoes, two-three layers of clothes, if you have a wind jacket is recommended. If it is foldable it’s better.). Please bring a bottle of water and sun protection in the summer months.

We provide all the cycling gear (bikes, helmets, first-aid kit, …). Any additional gear or clothes can be stored in a van or in our office.


Can we bring kids with us?

Kids are also welcome, as long as they are 140 cm high and they can cycle independently and ride an e-bike for at least 20 kilometers. Please notify us about any children joining when you book an experience or a tour. That way we can adjust the difficulty of the tour to them.


What about the bad weather?

Unfortunately, the weather is not up to us! So, even good plans might be ruined due to bad weather. We’ll make sure the tours and experiences happen even in less ideal weather, but we need to put your safety first. In case your tour gets canceled due to bad weather, we’ll fully reimburse you.


What should I wear?

Wear comfortable sports clothes. In particular, we recommend you bring sport shoes, a t-shirt, a jumper, and a wind-stopping jacket. Depending on the season of your tour or experience, you can adjust accordingly. You should also know some of the tours take place in the hills above Bolgheri or in the bush, where temperatures can be fresh even during the summer. You should also consider a waterproof jacket in case of bad weather.
