Preparing for Your Adventure of a Lifetime
Our experience has shown us that cyclists who have prepared themselves physically and mentally for their tour seem to have a richer and more satisfying experience. We’ve put together an array of informational materials to help you get ready for what we hope will be one of the most fun, fascinating, and memorable vacations of your life.
Start with the Introduction to a Ciclismo Classico Trip [LINK], which covers all the basics, from the daily schedule on tour to information about tipping and meals to how to remain friends with your Ciclismo bike. Don’t forget to check out our Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.
Make sure you’re in shape for your ride with our Training for a Bike Trip [LINK] guide, which provides tips for preparing for several days in the saddle. If you’d like an individual training program customized for your level of fitness and your upcoming tour, we recommend our partner Fit for Trips.
One of the most important elements of any cycling holiday is safety. Whether you’re an experienced rider or not, please read through our Cycling Safely [LINK] guide.
If you’re not sure what to bring, refer to our Packing Guide [LINK], which describes what you’ll need both on and off the bike, as well as a list of equipment that’s provided with our bikes. If you want to bring your own bike on tour, have a look at the Guidelines for Bringing Your Bike [LINK].
If you’re planning to travel independently before or after your tour, you may find our List of Recommended Hotels [LINK] useful. Our hotel manager Alessandra would be happy to help you make reservations.
Consult our Policies page for our cancellation policy and other terms and conditions. We also recommend you purchase insurance through our Partner MH Ross.
