Bike Chianti to Radda  30 miles – over gently rolling to rolling terrain

The Bike Chianti to Radda tour start outside the wall of  Siena, from here we set off into the verdant green valleys of the Chianti, along winding roads that cut through the forests and lead upward into Radda. From here we follow the so-called via dei castelli to San Paolo, Ama</; and Lecchi.
