Gian Marco Ceni
I was born in 1965 in Siena, and live in Radda in Chianti. Since very young, I have always been very enthusiastic about all forms of cycling. I am president of the local cycling club (ChiantiBike), which my company has sponsored for many years. I am very familiar with quiet roads with little traffic and also off-road trails through woods and open countryside. I am married to Monica who is a chef, with two daughters and I manage the retail operation of a furniture business. I love to be in contact with nature and explore the local territory on my mountain or road bike in search of new routes. I am passionate about our wonderful countryside and hope to be able to share with you the changing scenery, each season with its own fascination. I am a qualified Mountain Bike Instructor and can accompany a single cyclist or small groups for various types of tours; personalized itineraries can be organized by special arrangement.
