Our guide, Michel, was excellent. He showed us the backroads and small villages north of Pistoia and led us to wonderful footbridge that is a “must see”. My wife used an ebike and I a regular mountain bike. I got a good workout on the hills thus earning a tasty lunch in Gavinana. We then rode back to Pistoia to catch the train back to Florence.
