In the words of Ciclismo Classico's Founder Lauren Hefferon, "life should always be active, fun, delicious, educational, flowing, strengthening, energizing, and deeply connected to beautiful places and their people." If you haven't yet experienced such places from the seat of a bicycle––the dream is out there, waiting for you. With a personal guarantee for joy and her innate words of wisdom, Lauren shares how she followed her passions, and why taking just a few steps towards your dream can make that first imagined adventure a reality.
This is a dream cycling vacation and for sure; the coolest trip you could ever imagine. We think so. And, Bicycling Magazine agrees.
We're extremely excited for a whole new year of trips–some old and some new–to share with you for yet another season...our 30th, to be exact! So as we gear up for the all the fun, we thought it would be interesting to share some of our amazing peak moments—the delightful trip highlights and unbelievable off-the-charts experiences that typically leave Ciclismo Classico guests stunned and in awe. So, without further ado, here is a peek into some of the peaks of our best bike tours.
The best part of our job is to hear your stories from the road, whether it was a guide who helped celebrate your special moment (anniversary, birthday, etc), or if you experienced or learned something new on our tour. We're inviting past and current Ciclismo Classico alumni to share their fondest memories and experiences through our social media.
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!
