Elena

To me a bicycle represents freedom and happiness.

Ciao! I’m Elena,
I always enjoyed learning new languages and meeting other people from different countries, and this has given me insight into seeing things from a different perspective as well as other cultures.
I followed the specialized training in “Expert cycling mobility promoter” at the University in Verona and afterwards I got involved with a new job concerning bike tourism. I like to help people to find what they need to fall in love with cycling, just like I did, discovering the best places and having a great experience in Tuscany.
I ‘m super interested in promoting women and intersectionality in cycling.
For this reason I decided to be host for the town of Pisa, of the “Fancy women bike ride”, an international cycling event, to promote cycling among women, using this means as transport during their daily life, as symbol of their freedom.
So, let’s meet at Smile&Ride, it will be my pleasure!
Ci vediamo a Pisa!

Mario

To me a bicycle represents an opportunity to travel and explore both near and distant shores!

Ciao! I am Mario. I have always been passionate about sport and outdoor life. Over the last ten years, with a small group of close friends, I have visited many parts of Europe as part of our cycle tours, that you can see in this blog:

I am delighted to report that our cycling activities, have been transformed into a worthy cause, fund raising for research into cystic fibrosis, going by the name of “PedalaPerUnRespiro” (www.pedalaperunrespiro.it).
It will be my pleasure to share with you my knowledges, to support your bike experience in Tuscany.

Alejandro

Who goes Slow and steady wins!

Hey there! I’m Alejandro!
I have been a bike enthusiast since my childhood. Riding a bike is a part of me, on my bike I have no boundaries. In Venezuela I studied international cooking, but when I arrived in Italy and I met this amazing couple Mario&Elena from Smile&Ride, another chapter of my life has begun: I knew new cultures, I have fallen in love with the bike world and all experiences that can give, especially in Tuscany. I’ll take care of the bikes to keep them in the best condition for your trip!
