BIKE TOURING IN ITALY

As we enter 2022 the way of travel is changing for many, but for those that enjoy riding bicycles there is a renaissance occurring.  COVID stopped travel to Italy in 2020 and most of 2021, but prior to that Italy had already started devoting more time to develop better green friendly travel options.  The bicycle has always been a passion in Italy and now the country is making an effort to expand bike paths and routes throughout the peninsula. These routes combined with the Classic Climbs of the Italian Alps and Dolomites make a perfect destination to enjoy great rides, history, food and wine, and local culture.
