our mission

Tour Director Andy Mackie has long believed that cycling shouldn’t be exclusive. After all, it’s a mode of transport powered by you. Everyone should be able to enjoy it. Andy founded the LA CORSA with a single aim: to help you enjoy cycling as much as he does.

 

WE HAVE EVERYTHING COVERED

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PEDAL

 

LA CORSA is on a mission to provide you with the best of everything at the best possible price.And we do. LA CORSA offers the best value of any other cycling tour on the market.

but how?

LA CORSA is run by the people who own the company. We don’t pass on our overheads, because we don’t have any. It’s as simple as that. And we don’t scrimp on anything, in fact we give you more. Like standard single occupancy included in the price of every Tuscan, Chianti tour.

Take a look at our tour itineraries and you’ll see we’re giving you amazing value. And you can relax as we have everything covered. There won’t be any surprises.

“The service was seamless. From the friendly welcome at the airport, right through to drop off at the end, I felt completely looked after. And I didn’t have to think about my bike once. It was cleaned and ready to pedal every morning.”

— James, Reading.

who we are

ANDY MACKIE

A lover of cycling, Italy, fine food and wine, Andy created the LA CORSA experience, using his intimate knowledge of Tuscany. Andy prides himself on his local knowledge, from the best off-the-path stops for espresso con panna to the little bakery that serves the the sweetest torta. Once upon a time, Andy was well known for going quite quick on his bike, but then the others caught up. With decades of cycling experience as a racer and tour guide, he was into cycling before it became cool, racing alongside Bradley Wiggins and Chris Hoy… before the gold medals and knighthood. (Let’s be honest: he had an excellent view of their backsides before popping off the wheel.) Andy loves to share his passion for cycling and his experience, including all the special places, views, cafes and roads you won’t find in any guidebook.

CHRIS SMALL

A former professional squash player, Chris moved to Italy in 2007 to ride his bike in the best locale in the world. Suffering on a bike is his joy, and he can be found climbing the hills of Chianti seven days a week, whether guiding or riding alone. His cycling addiction is all-encompassing, and he’s always ready to discuss anything from the best-tasting sports gels to which café serves the strongest espresso. A tour guide in Tuscany, Chris is known throughout the area for his gravity-defying abilities on a bike; a Strava celebrity, he’s collected KOMs from well known pros on many of the most notable climbs. When not competing, Chris truly enjoys conversing with guests and sharing his knowledge and love of Italy. He’s never far away when anyone needs a push or a bottle  — or wants to learn how he charmed an Italian beauty into becoming his wife.
