The New Year will be here in the blink of an eye. Have you already started dreaming about where you’d like to travel in 2016? When you have limited vacation days, combining them with paid holidays makes a lot of sense. Including a paid holiday in your travel time reduces the number of precious vacation days you have to use.

I am frequently asked “What is your favorite place to bike?” I am hard pressed to come up with a venue I enjoyed more than Corsica. It epitomizes the Mediterranean region. Although it is now part of France, it represents a fusion of French, Italian and Corsican cultures, history, languages, terrain, cuisine and love of cycling.
As with any winter outdoor activity, layering is key. Fortunately, Ciclismo Classico tours run spring through fall in Europe so you usually won't need to layer up unless you have selected an advanced tour in, let's say, the Pyrenees or French Alps, where you will reach high altitudes and lower temperatures.
