Although the wait for late arrivals (rather than start on time) was frustrating, the tour was otherwise terrific. The bikes were comfy and in good condition, and our knowledgeable guide managed to navigate a well-paced course through the busy streets to a remarkable range of "sights", providing an informative and interesting hiSTORY of Firenze, its people and architecture. The size of our group (about 10) was manageable, but this number of riders may not "work" if (m)any did not have basic bike etiquette/handling skills.
Having not realized the need to book well ahead if you wish to get into the Uffizi during peak season, we were delighted to pay a few extra euros in order to be able to get in and also by-pass the ridiculously long, slow queues. The process of getting in was a breeze (both metaphorically and literally - a relief on the hot day we were there), but I'd recommend shelling out for an audio guide when you get inside the Uffizi to help make sense of the enormous collection (which we found a bit overwhelming)
