This is an old one, but it’s always good to see Ultra Romance, aka Benedict, aka Poppi’s Pizza, aka Jøtul, doing his thing.
This looks amazing! Count me in next year…
“What is Tuscany Trail? It’s an adventure, not a race, in other words an experience: an unusual, exciting and uncertain experience. A bikepacking experience. It’s unsupported: there’s a start and a GPS track, but nothing more. Everybody has to plan the course looking at their needs and attitudes or listening to what their body communicates. There’ll be who is challenging himself and who’s taking it easy, relishing the stunning view.
640 km (400 miles), with an elevation gain of 12000m (39000 feet), where half of them are on gravel roads and singletrack.
This is Tuscany Trail.”
Hey Minneapolis, I love you. In fact, your river bottoms are a lot of fun. If you’re a local, head over to this Vimeo page for details as to how you can help preserve one of the best places to ride bikes in America’s #1 city for cycling…

Keeping up with current demand, State Bicycle Co has launched a new off-road division, including a fatbike and singlspeed cross bike:
“Say hello to the newest and most tenacious members of the State Bicycle Co. family: The Off-Road Division. This premiere line of Cyclo-Cross Bicycles and Fat Bikes were consciously built to take you as far & wide as your spirit of adventure can go.
We took our Team Riders out to some of the most singular landforms of the West Coast and Southwest, Cyclo-Cross and Fat Bikes in tow, and sent them barreling into terrain that gave us genuine pause. Three states, eight locales, more than a few attempted daredevil stunts, and a broken arm later, we realized something: it doesn’t get much better than adventuring through the unbeaten path with your friends.”
More information to come from State.
