A lovely day of biking in the Umbria valley
Mar 2017 • Couples
We did a full day of mountain biking with Gira L'Umbria. Antonella met us at the station Foligno, as we had travelled from Perugia, which was quick and straightforward. All of the kit was ready to go and in very good/new condition. Antonella talked us through the route to insure it was appropriate for our ability, as my partner was relatively inexperienced. We set off on a route following tracks through olive plantations and vineyards gently meandering higher up the side of the valley. The route followed a section of the Saint Francis way through a number of small villages all with picturesque old buildings and churches. We stopped for a quick refill of our water bottles from a natural spring and continued to Trevi, which is perched on the hillside. We stopped at a little restaurant to refuel on pasta and a beer. The pace of the trip is really up to you and Antonella changed the route after lunch to suit our slower pace. We followed the river back up the valley to end back in Foligno for ice cream in the main square. I would really recommend the company, Antonella is super friendly and informative about the region and our trip went without a hitch. 5 stars 😎

Bike delivered to my hotel in a nearby town from Foligno. Everything included, even a map. Great people to work with and excellent equipment. The countryside of Umbria is spectacular when seen over the handlebars.

Great bike and awesome service
Dec 2016 • Family
I recently rented two mountain bikes over the XMAS break. The guys were great delivering the bike to our farm house with maps, helmets, safety tops, tubes etc. The bikes were in great condition and the flexibility shown by the team in terms of drop off and pick up was excellent. If only my legs were as flexible up some of those trails. Nonetheless, riding around Antognolla was amazing.

An Amazing Trip!
Jun 2015 • Couples
During the planning of our 25th anniversary trip to Umbria, we found Gira l’Umbria and its owner, Antonella Tucci, by an Internet search. We finally met Antonella six months later, when she delivered the bicycles for our tour of Umbria. Though we had taken some basic Italian language lessons, her English language skills are excellent. Antonella did all the trip planning for us, picking stellar routes that minimized our exposure to Umbria’s busy highways while highlighting the remote countryside. We toured through the countryside on her Specialized Sirrus touring bicycles without a single problem. The bicycles were well equipped, with panniers, extra tubes, pumps, and tire changing gear. She provided both a GPS, with tracks downloaded, and written directions for our planned routes, allowing us to enjoy the views rather than worry about taking a wrong turn.

All in all, we had a fabulous experience with Gira l’Umbria and Antonella. We put our complete faith in someone on the other side of the world to make our 25th anniversary trip special and she delivered big time! Thank you Antonella!

A Special Ride
Mar 2015 • Couples
My husband and I were planning to spend 2 weeks at a house we rented in Umbria and a friend of ours, who had traveled there a couple of years ago, recommended that we book a bike ride and picnic with Antonella from Gira l'Umbria. We took his advice and were so glad we did--the ride was a highlight of our trip. Antonella is a terrific guide, who provides everything you'll need (bikes, helmets, even gloves) and who also knows the area really well. She even arranged for us to have a gourmet picnic featuring local foods and wine at the end of the ride. We planned to spend another day with Antonella, but were rained out. We hope to book with her again the next time we're in Umbria.

great service, with a smile

At Antonella's suggestion, she and her husband (and daughter) met us from the train with the bikes. We tried them, and without being rushed at all made necessary adjustments (seat height, putting my pedals on etc..)
When after the next day's ride I needed a change of seat post there was no problem with coming over to our b&b with a replacement.
The bikes were sturdy (sirrus) with racks to take our panniers and pretty much ideal for touring.
We completed about 300 miles around Umbria encountering some pretty hefty climbs and some variable road surfaces! We had no mechanical problems although basic tools and tubes were included in the package (I carried my own mutitool and chain link just in case) I don't doubt that Antonella would have responded quickly to any emergency distress call and in fact made sure we had her mobile number. She was flexible with the bike return time and didn't quibble about my altering the rendezvous when we were delayed.
We could not fault the service provided and would, without doubt, use again if we planned a return trip
Thanks Antonella!

Fantastic cycling adventure in Umbria.
Jul 2013 • Family
We wanted to do something different, but we're not experienced cyclists and nervous on Italian roads. Antonella met us, took us to the start of a beautiful cycle path and supplied us with top-class bikes for the ride. She speaks excellent English and made sure we had all we needed for our trip. We had a great day out, riding through gorgeous countryside and thankfully all on the flat!
Antonella adjusts her service to suit individual customers and we'd highly recommend her.
