Top Guides in Gran Canaria

As Ciclismo Classico staff member Lauren Lasky says: "Cycling Gran Canaria is simply an enchanting experience. Where else in the world can you hop on your bike from under a grove of palm trees and spin along the edge of a volcanic crater in the middle of the sea?"

We're excited to announce a very special, festive Top Guide tour with Henrick Murphy and Massimo Marenco departing December 4th, 2017.

Wine, Cheese, Gold & Festivals in Piedmont

We have a long standing love relationship with the beloved region of Piedmont.

I have these vivid memories of driving through the vine-clad hills of Piedmont researching routes with La Lorena and our local guide, Claudio. On most days, after driving around for hours to find the best cycling roads possible, Lauren would get restless and eager to get out on her bike. She’d typically jump out of the car, onto the saddle and off she’d go up and over the lovely Piemontese landscape, meeting up with us in some town or village further along the way...

Harvest Season, Under the Sun

The memories of my early years in Italy remain vivid. I remember my first holiday celebrations, the special foods that were shared during those times, the various planting seasons. Abundance in Spring. Harvest time in the Fall. Festa! This period, in particular, is a time of hard work, excitement and joy for wine producers, their families and every single person involved in the creative, arduous yet joyful process of making wine.

2 Awesome Summer Family Trips: Sardinia & Tuscany

My youngest son who recently turned 11 years-old has this great habit of rating things on a scale of 1-10. He’ll rate anything from the pain level of his latest minor basketball injury to my homemade pasta dish at dinner or a weekend family Tuscan hike. He even rates our family vacations. On one of our recent trips in the Italian Alps his rating actually toppled off the charts. “Mamma, this trip couldn’t have been any better, I didn’t want it to end. I rate it a 14 out of 10.”
