MEET YOUR HOST!

Hi! We are Paladino and Pietro

We are two professional cycling guides certified by the Italian Cycling Federation with a great passion for cycling and our territory. In 2021 we conceived and started up a cycling education program called Chronò Young”, a completely free of costs, introductory course for urban and sport cycling, open to children from 7 to 14 years old. In 2022, together with Puccini Experience A.P.S., we designed and organized the first edition of the “Ciclo Classica Puccini”, a cultural cycling event where about 400 participants took part in.

Paladino Meschi

Paladino, 55, a lifelong cyclist, since more than 30 years has been owning and managing Chronò, a sales and rental bike shop of all types of bicycles (urban, trekking, road and e-bike) in the historical city center of Lucca. Here you can find some of the best Italian cycling brands, including Pinarello, Cinelli, Guerciotti, Ganna, and sells cycling clothing made in Italy and Switzerland, as Santini and Assos.
His business has always stood out over the years for the passion with which it is carried out, following the concept of riding a bicycle as a means of living an experience: not surprisingly, over the years he has been leading the visitors of the Plain of Lucca during their bike rides, letting them experience the truest, most genuine side of our territory through unique experiences under a human, touristic and cycling point of view.

In 2018 he had a work experience in the Netherlands, working in the bike shops of Het Zwarte Fietsenplan, the main bike sale&rental business in Amsterdam. His love for his land brought him back to Lucca, where he is now continuing his career as a mechanic and cycling guide at Chronò, dedicating himself in his spare time to the implementation of initiatives and projects which deal with the world of cycling.
