Cycle Italia Cycle Italia was formed to serve those whose passion for cycling is matched only by their passion for Italian countryside, wine, and cuisine. During a decade of work with another tour company, we heard countless clients yearning for smaller groups, more charming accommodations, more authentic local foods and wines and travel in parts of Italy less frequented by tourists.
At CycleItalia we research ride routes that challenge the body while delighting the senses as they wind through sleepy stone piazzas, climb toward hilltop castles, glide along terraced vineyard ridges, and plunge down corkscrew descents. Each vacation offers an average of 100 kilometers (60 miles) per day (Tasting Series Vacations average less). Our aim is to satisfy even the fittest and fastest riders while providing options for the rest of us.
Our carefully-designed ride guides include detailed maps, computer-generated direction charts with cumulative and intermediate distances, custom elevation profiles, and useful information on local sights, wine, and cuisine. Legendary Climbs feature detailed accounts of each climbs racing history.
CycleItalia clients are serious recreational cyclists desiring the “ultimate Italian experience.” They want more than challenging rides, they share the philosophy of “pedala forte, mangia bene” (ride hard, eat well) that is the essence of Italian cycling. You need not be fast or supremely fit to enjoy our vacations; attitude, proper gearing, and our support vehicles will enable most any cycling enthusiast to enjoy their experience.
