Vintage bikes tour the vineyards of Tuscany as thousands complete Italy's L'Eroica cycle challenge


More than eight thousand cycling enthusiasts completed a tour of Tuscany in the 25th annual L’Eroica vintage cycling festival in Italy.

Using bicycles manufactured before 1987, participants could choose from a 46km pedal through Chianti or a longer 209km trail.

It was a chance for some to dress up in costumes from the early 20th century and for others to enjoy the scenery and hospitality of the region.
