As we pedal our passion throughout the month of February, we invite you to join us for some amazing discussions with guides who will be sharing the highlights and stories about the thrilling rides for the following tours: Liguria and Portugal with Massimo De Laurentis; Piedmont and Follow the (100th) Giro d'Italia with Enrico Pizzorni, and gourmet discoveries in Costa Brava with Alessandro Allegro.
Enrico Pizzorni has spent the Winter pouring over maps and routes sorting out the zillions of details related to designing our Follow the Giro d'Italia tour departing in May. In this interview Enrico reminisces about The Grand Italian Race and how he experienced this important annual event growing up in a small Northern Italian village. Read on as he shares many enlightening and heart-warming Giro stories!
It takes motion to create excellence. In Italian: eccellenza. And our exceptional tour guides are not only active but taking action--on each and every trip--to deliver nothing less than excellence.
We know that our guides raise the standard. They have a standard of perpetual motion, outdoing self to the next level each and every day on tour – and that has become the Ciclismo Classico standard of excellence:
Go beyond the norm; be distinguishable; and be excellent.
Feeling Forever Young in The Soul Stirring Galapagos
This past summer I fulfilled a life-long dream of traveling to the Galapagos Islands and witnessing up close a myriad of amazing birds and sea creatures. Scouting our Galapagos Magic journey, I enjoyed 8 days on our small luxury boat La Beluga, peacefully immersed in these magical islands and surrounded by creatures who were not afraid to wander or swim near me and say "hello." It was beyond my wildest imagination.
Last November, I had the pleasure of accompanying our first group of travelers on our long-weekend cycling escape to Bermuda. The group was made up of four "first-timers" and four who were on their second bike trip of the year. Only a 2-hour flight from Boston, this island-nation is a true gem in the sub-tropical Atlantic whose beauty and charm created a long-lasting surprise-and-delight effect on those visiting for the first time. It has the same effect on me every time I return!
Our Bike Across Italy trip stops in the most incredible villages, including Gubbio, where every spring they celebrate the lively, colorful Festival dei Ceri. Read more here about this illustrious event happening during our May 2017 trip--and other Spring festivals across Central Italy.
