cykelresa italien

Do you enjoy shaking legs and drops of sweat on your forehead? Of course you do, and most people enjoy the combination of wonderful challenging bike rides and good food, plenty to drink and great company!

We invite you to a bike ride among mountains and valleys in close proximity to Bergamo. Everything is here! Winding roads without heavy traffic, one or two cows perhaps ... but also a couple of classic climbs that formed a stage in the Giro di Italia, which 2017 passed our valley, Valle Brembana.
Let our guide Marco take you on bike rides where he knows roads, curves and climbs like in his own pocket, Marco lives just outside Bergamo and has cycled many miles around. We will see both Como lake and Iseo lake and the trip also includes an overnight stay at the vineyard where we enjoy good food & drink!


Welcome to a wonderfully tough, challenging and tasty bike ride!
