RoadBikeToursItaly was set up thanks to a desire to share our appreciation of the beautiful landscapes, history and culture which Italy offers together with a passion for cycling. Our mission is to make sure that your road bike tour in Italy is a memorable experience, cycling among some of the best countryside in the world, with local personalized assistance to guarantee absolute peace of mind.

To ensure optimal service Road Bike Tours Italy is totally focused on attention to detail.

So we’ve chosen to organize trips only for small groups (min. 4 / max. 7 persons). Since we wish to take care of our customers personally, right from when you get in touch with us and throughout the entire trip, we prefer to personalize our attention by taking care of just a few participants.

The constant presence of a minibus, both for the transport of your luggage, and for any type of assistance that may be required, and the presence of a technical guide cycling alongside you, guarantee customer satisfaction and confidence.

Luca and Michela personally take care of each phase, both during the organization stage and the tour itself, studying the best routes, providing support, interacting with the cyclist on the road at all times: this is a new and original approach that allows us to offer high standards of service and to ensure full and complete reliability for a carefree vacation.

The choice of the best hotels and agritourisms, where you can enjoy delicious local dishes, dinners at acclaimed restaurants and pleasant evenings with the rest of the group and your Italian guide LUCA, who speaks excellent English, will be the background to this unique and unforgettable experience, and ensure that you get a taste of the real Italy, which ordinary larger tour companies cannot provide.

Our considerable experience in all types of cycling, also at a competitive level, the perfect knowledge of the territory thanks to years of traveling and previous work experience provided the ideal starting point to start an organized road bike tour service that aims to deliver the best results, and therefore the highest customer satisfaction.

Your memorable bike tour winds its way through the picturesque scenery of the Tuscan hills, the ancestral atmospheres of ancient villages, the amazingly panoramic roads overlooking the shores of beautiful sea, the indescribable beauty of the lakes of Lombardy and the challenging climbs to Alpine Passes, scene of epic battles of the Tour of Italy.

When I was young my holiday was in a bike, so, carry in my bag, tent and sleeping bag and go to see the world.. I was being in Corsica, Austria, Croazia, Sardinia, Dolomiten Alps and the lake of Garda, always with my girlfriend, now became my wife.

Cycle tourism is the best way to visit new places, because you can perceive the morphology of the landscapes around you, feeling the flow of the time and the day like anything else, I feel part of the world, and nothing is better than start the day on my bike.

My family grew, we became 5, so, stop for few years cycle tourism, and I have started to do randonneur, always with the spirit of travel and discovery, I did 2 Paris Brest Paris, Valtellina Extreme Brevet and many others brevets of 200, 300, 400, and 600 Kilometers.. the excuse to get on the saddle and travel independently to discover new places and people with the same passion.

I think that none of our small daily sufferings resist to a good ride
