These tours will test both your mental and physical strength, and are for the more enthusiastic cyclist who wishes to pedal in the tracks of some of the sports most celebrated athletes whilst simultaneously enjoying, hopefully, some of the most breath-taking scenery on the planet.

As with our more leisurely cycling holidays, your accommodation, maps and itineraries are all included as part of the package, as is your road bike hire, of which we usually have a superior/high-end standard available too. Our road bike cycling tours are not all about challenging yourself though, throughout the evenings and daytime stop offs, we encourage you to sample the incredible local cuisines and wines. After all, spending a week or more in the hills of Italy without enjoying a velvety glass of Barolo or sweet sparkling Asti would be regrettable to say the least!

With daily rides of 70-150km per day these cycling tours really do require a level of fitness. If you are unsure whether they are right for you please do get in contact with us as we would be happy to advise you and make recommendations.
