What people are saying about Pisa

Great service from the shop just by the Lucca Station, fabulous route to and from pisa, electric bikes made the trip fabulous, bike carrier and pannier mean everything was stowed. Great bikes with massive range Still loads left at the end of the day, thoroughly recommended for a full day out

The staff was friendly. The bikes were good. It was a nice way (there nicer than back). It would be helpful to note that you should first load the Komoot app. All in all a very successful trip!

Great tour! Easy enough for non-regular cyclists, but little shade on the way to Lucca, so bring lots of water on a hot day!

Very helpful staff at the shop. Fun way to see Pisa once we got used to the scooters

Do not do this alone! Too many things could go wrong!
