Having lived and trained for many years in his favorite Italian town of Lucca, Thomas has truly become a ridemeister of this beautiful part of Tuscany. After leaving the Netherlands, Lucca and its surroundings became the area where Thomas lived most of the time during his professional career. He still loves coming back here for obvious reasons. Just look around and take a ride and for sure you will be coming back too.
What Thomas says about this special; “Bella Italia! I moved to Lucca when I was 21 years old. I found Italian life wonderful and soon felt at home. Lucca is a beautiful town and still feels very special to me. From Lucca we can head into serious mountains and do great climbs, or we can cover the notorious ‘Strade Bianche’ or we can do some nice cruising along the seaside boulevards. Even better, we can do all three. I would say Lucca has it all, hence why you can easily spend multiple days cycling here, and feel you’re discovering something new every day.
Lucca is a cycling minded city, so all you need and would be looking for on and off the bike is there. After the rides, back in town we will enjoy dinner at my favorite restaurants to recover and prepare for a next day of riding. Needless to say that eating and drinking here in Italy is probably just as good as your bike riding. Although during my professional life I was somewhat restricted because of the professional cycling diets, today the two go hand in hand together perfectly. So let’s enjoy Lucca, Tuscany and a unique experience here.”
