Imagine Yourself Cycling In Italy!
It's the views that take your breath away and the Italian sun smiling down on you. It's the friendly people, the stops for cappuccino and gelato... the promise of a delicious, well earned meal after a ride. It's all those things. In Italian it's ciclismo italiano. In English it's...
This is the eighth year I'm taking friends (and friends of friends) riding in Italy's Veneto region - the heart of Italian cycling. I rent out a lovely B&B and invite my cycling pals to join me for a week or two of pedaling in paradise. Since we stay in one place, there’s no need to pack up and move every day, but I promise you there is never a shortage of glorious rides. Whether you’re in the mood for a challenging climb or just a nice, easy spin through the Brenta River Valley, you will be delighted every day.
On a typical morning you stumble out of your room around 8 for cappuccino, breakfast and a talk about where we’d like to ride that day. By 9 we’re on our bikes and on the road. Maybe we’ll do a short ride to Asolo or Marostica or an adventurous trek to the peak of Montegrappa. After a stop for a simple lunch, we're back at the B&B around 2. Then the afternoon is yours to enjoy. Go for another ride. Take a nap. Explore the nearest city, Bassano Del Grappa. Take a walk along the river. Around 7, we go out for dinner at one of the wonderful ristoranti, trattorie or pizzerie near our B&B.
So what does all this fabulous cost? $1200 for a room for a week. ($600 each if you and a friend share a room.) That includes a lovely, immaculate room with a private bath, a healthy breakfast and (weather permitting) a guided bike ride every day that you'll remember for the rest of your life. Our B&B has only 3 guest rooms so there are almost never more than 6 guests at a time.
