Montalcino with Gusto Cycling

Eroica Montalcino

Weekend 26th to 29th May 2023

Eroica Montalcino takes place in the beautiful and enchanting hilltop medieval town of extraordinary beauty, Montalcino, located south of Siena, your right in the heart of the stunning Val D’Orcia region, declared a UNESCO World Heritage area in 2004 and is the home of the world-renowned Brunello wine. Here you will be surrounded by many Brunello wine estates, stunning scenery which includes “Strada Bianche” gravel roads and fabulous Tuscany cuisine.

The weekend event is much lower key than its big brother L’eroica in Gaiole in Chianti (held in October ), which in turn gives it a more charming experience without the huge crowds. The routes will visit many iconic towns and villages, such as Pienza, San Quirico d’Orcia & Buonconvento, plus stunning white roads.  

The 70-kilometre route is suitable for those who want to start discovering the heroicity of a heroic journey on legendary places like Castiglion del Bosco.

BRUNELLO ROUTE 46km Elevation 900M
The 46-kilometre route is suitable for all those who do not want to tackle the long route but who would like to see some of the legendary sections of the long path of L’Eroica, like Castiglion del Bosco.

FAMILY FUN ROUTE 27km Elevation 580M
The 27 km route was designed to give the possibility to families with children as a result of being able to pedal on our wonderful territory and discover the wonders of  Brunello.

MEDIUM ROUTE VAL D’ORCIA 96km. Elevation 1,900M
The route of 96 kilometres is not to be underestimated; this route is suitable for trained cyclists who do not get scared off the slopes.

LONG ROUTE 153km Elevation 3,005M
The most challenging route develops 153 kilometres through the Val d’Orcia and its UNESCO treasures. True heroics will fall in love with this path! Get ready to sweat and enjoy as much Heroic as you can imagine.
