A sense of freedom

The first edition of the B-KING Mountain Bike Race (Mountain Bike Tour Toscana) took place on 18th October 2015 in Fiesole. FiesoleBike embraced with enthusiasm the suggestion of the Veloce Club Firenze to organize an MTB race in Fiesole, and helped identifying the basic racing track thanks to its deep knowledge of the territory.

b-kingThis was a one-of-a-kind opportunity for all participants and two-wheel lovers to discover this little mountain bike heaven: a maze of trails and country roads winding through an unrivalled landscape, just a few pedal strokes away from Florence!
Though remaining almost exclusively in the territory of Fiesole, we managed to create a racing track of 48 km and a vertical drop of 1800 meters!

We would like to thank the organizers for making this possible, and we wish them every success with the race over the coming years!

Our travel philosophy

The bond we have with a place and its people is not a matter of words, it can’t be created in a studio, and it can’t be witnessed with a beautiful picture. It’s something that grows with time, experience, observation, hand-shaking, chatting. Season after season, year after year, generation after generation…
When we travel, we hope to catch something in the places we visit, and to be left with a trace, an encounter.
Our aim is to give you at least a glimpse of our land, with the hope that someday you or your children will come back, and we or our children will be there to welcome you. Because our homeland is our greatest wealth, it protects our roots and our own identity.

 

 

THE NATURE IS YOUR WORLD, YOUR GYM

Fiesole mountain bikeOur experience and solid knowledge of the territory allow us to organize bike tours of any length and technical level.

Sono molto felice di annunciare che FiesoleBike ha ricevuto anche per 2014 il riconoscimento ufficiale di “Do the Right Mix” la campagna della Commissione Europea per la Mobilità Urbana Sostenibile.

Dopo i Mondiali di ciclismo in Toscana, dove Fiesole ha avuto un ruolo di primo piano, uno sguardo al futuro, “oltre la salita”, oltre lo sport.

FiesoleBike, attività di Noleggio bici e di Guida ambientale escursionista  strettamente legata al proprio territorio, spera così di contribuire concretamente a promuovere la mobilità sostenibile, in particolare abbinando la bici al bus pubblico, ed incoraggiare le persone, turisti e non, a diversificare le modalità di trasporto negli spostamenti fra Fiesole e Firenze alla scoperta di un territorio unico!

Quest’anno anche ATAF collabora alla promozione del servizio ed uno sconto del 10% è offerto proprio a chi utilizza il bus pubblico per raggiungere Fiesole.

La campagna è gestita dalla Direzione generale della Mobilità e dei Trasporti e finanziata attraverso il programma Intelligent Energy Europe – programma di sostegno dell’UE per le azioni non tecnologiche nel settore dell’efficienza energetica e delle fonti rinnovabili. Il suo obbiettivo principale è promuovere i vantaggi che si hanno combinando differenti mezzi di trasporto, al fine di migliorare la salute, le finanze e l’impatto ambientale.

La campagna rientra nei progetti legati alla Settimana Europea della Mobilità Sostenibile, che si svolgerà dal 16 al 22 settembre, giornata accompagnata dallo slogan “Our streets, our choice”.

I’m really happy to announce that FiesoleBike also in 2014 has been chosen as an official action of “Do the Right Mix – the European Commission’s  Sustainable Urban Mobility.

FiesoleBike, Bike rental and Environmental guide service, closely linked to the territory, hopes to contribute concretely to promote sustainable mobility, in particular “mixing bike and bus service”, and to encourage people, tourists and locals, to diversify the modes of transport between Fiesole and Florence, to discover a unique territory!

This year, also ATAF takes part to the promotion of service, and a discount of 10% is offered to those who take public bus to reach Fiesole.

The campaign is managed by the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport and funded through the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme – the EU’s support programme for non-technological actions in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. It’s central objective is to promote the advantages of combining different modes of transport in order to improve health, finances and environmental impact.

We will pass by Montececeri, a hill towering over Florence, from which Leonardo da Vinci plausibly launched his “first human flight”.
This is the ancient heart of Tuscany, where lived Michelangelo Buonarroti, which is also recalled in Boccaccio’s novels. The view on Florence and the Arno valley is amazing. These places are also famous for the extraction and processing of the Serena stone, a material used ever since the Renaissance age, which has been massively used for the construction of art works such as the Brunelleschi Dome and the Loggia of the Uffizi Gallery
