Touring routes in Europe- mainly Italy.
Hi! So my fiancÚ and I are living in Pisa, Italy for 6 months and would like to find some appropriate rides for our skill level, which is verrrrry much beginners. As in, one week of riding. We've been doing rides that are 16-24 km and (4 of those) without any pains or problems, except the very uncomfortable cold weather! Thes rides have been near Pisa and very, very flat for the most part.
We love it! We're trying to get our hands on some books that have good paths, but to get them in English we think it will be a while. First, do any of you know a website that has maps with descriptions of the rides?
Also, suggestions would be great! I'm curious about if there's a route we could handle going through the Pisan Hills? Also, any suggestions of safe roads/paths that would take us to different cities, like Florence and routes through Tuscany and Umbria.
And if you happen to have any suggestions about other areas we are already planning on traveling, that would be great, too! We will be visiting Paris, Amsterdam, Zurich, and Vienna. For these tris, we may bring our bikes, but would likely be looking into renting to avoid bringing the bikes on long car rides and planes.
