Can I choose different routes within the same group ?

Yes, it is possible to mix and match routes for different levels of fitness within the same group. We will help you find what is right for you.
We offer two kind of standard tours:
- a weekly plan of road bike tour : six main / principal /easier routes (80 km – 50 miles approx with some climbs), six challenging / avid / long routes (80 / 100 km – 50 / 62 miles approx with many climbs ) and three extra daily rides.
Each day you'll decide between an easier route with some climbs and a challenging option with more climbs.
- a weekly plan of gentle cycling tour : eleven rides (50 km – 31 miles approx with few and short climbs).
All the rides of weekly plan are interchangeable.

Who goes on your rides ?

The one thing that all our guests share is a love of being outdoors. Other than that, our guests come from many backgrounds and have different levels of cycling experience: from the casual cyclist to the serious amateur cyclist wanting to test themselves on challenging climbs.

Is there a certain day to do the Madonna del Ghisallo ride ?

No,there isn’t.
We decide the day together with our guests.
We have a weekly plan, however you can change and to do an extra daily ride like "Madonna del Ghisallo".
It’s an all-day ride. We can come back to hotel by bike or by train.

I ride a lot. Are there rides that will challenge me ?

For more advanced riders, there are some great and long rides up into the hills in the Northern Area.
Please look at the challenging / long routes (80 / 100 km – 50 / 62 miles approx with many climbs ) in weekly plan of road bike tour.

I am a beginner. Will I be fit enough ?

Many beginner riders come on our rides. Our area is characterized by a continuous up and down. It has a typically hilly and mountainous landscape in the northern part (approx 3,280 feet - 1.000 metres a.s.l.) and relatively flat (approx. 980 feet - 300 metres a.s.l.) in the southern part. The average elevation gain is approx. 300 feet - 100 metres every 6.20 miles - 10 km.
You might think that, alas, this is not the place for gentle and slow cycling. And you would be right. However, we planned itineraries where you can avoid cycling any big hills and medium sized hills too. We are adept at avoiding as many as possible main busy roads.
Please look at the eleven rides (50 km – 31 miles approx with few and short climbs) in weekly plan of gentle cycling tour.

Is there a support vehicle for assistance during the rides ?

No, there isn’t.
Mechanical breakdowns, accidents or falls sometimes happened, however we always took our guests home quickly.
Our guest are never abandoned, and the assistance is fundamental part of our rides.
Anyway we regularly regroup in any spot or at the top of the hill.
