Road biking tours (not just) in Italy

We like call them cycling experiences


We love guiding group tours, talking about the places we visit, answering to your questions with the knowledge of a local guide, help creating a magical atmosphere in a group.

We love make feel our guests so safe that they only focus on their riding experience.

We love (and live for) the sad farewells - always a 'see you again soon' - as they mean we did great.

But we like also offering the great flexibility of self guided tours, since - at Italy-Cycling - it assures also the greatest level of comfort, safety and local knowledge given by our extensive documentation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's your usual support level on guided tours?

We have a strict rule since from the very beginning of our adventure: a six to one ratio, which means a riding guide every each 6 riders. Plus, a van that can keep about half riders. The van contains a mobile workshop, spare wheels, spare bikes (the number is chosen depending on the required sizes). We provide a quick lunch on the go (sandwiches, pies, juices, fruit) as well as bevareages. We have gels bars and electrolyes available on purchase. The van is constantly connected to the guide(s).

How do I prepare myself?

Our tours are suited to riders of different capabilities and fitness. For every trip you'll find the estimated fitness level (Recreational, Enthusiast, Challenge). Should you have doubt in the interpretation of that when selecting a tour, the best thing to do is getting in touch with our very experienced staff who'll be happy to help you assess if the tour you've in mind is suitable for you. As an approach, we do not sell a tour if we're not sure you won't enjoy it.

Where do your clients come from?

Many guests find it hilarious, but less than 1% of our guests are from Italy and despite we're proudly Italians, we mostly speak English at work. Our guests are mostly from the US, Canada, Australia, UK and Switzerland. We pride to have a huge repeaters' rate.

How long have you guys been doing this?

Italy-Cycling is not new. Is instead the Italian branch of the head company based in Sardinia and called SardiniaCycling.

Since 2008 we specialize in arranging unforgettable cycling tours and holidays, accommodating cyclists from all around the world in our paradise island.

Do your guides speak English?

Of course they do. Depending on guest's nationality, on the Country touched by the itinerary as well as on the specific trip level, we choose guides that beside English can speak other languages, like French or German.

Do you offer self-guided tours?

Of course we do. Most tours in our catalog have a self-guided variant. Self-guided tours depart anytime in the season and have a specific pricing that is indicated in the travel page. Services related to guided and self guided tours are listed in all the tour description pages.

What do I get if I reserve a self-guided tour?

Guests on our self-guided tours get an extensive information pack, detailed maps, road book and a GPS with loaded tracks. While on site, we arrange a briefing and we fit the bikes. Our staff are always available to help you wherever and at any time. Our network of offices allows prompt response and immediate action from our own skilled staff. So far, none of our guests have lost a single day of their tour. And its up to us to see that they never will.

Do you offer luggage transfer on your self-guided tours? How does it work?

Yes, sure. And it works in a very smooth way. You'll be asked to leave your labeled bags at the hotel reception every morning by 9.30 am. You'll find bags at the next hotel before 2 pm.

WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT US

Self Guided tour on Sardinia

What a great tour put together by the team at Sardinia Cycling. Australia is a long way from Sardinia - but it was worth the trip! The accommodation and food put together for the tour was fantastic. The logistics worked perfectly with luggage magically appearing...

S.P. Clark, Melbourne, Australia

Outstanding!

I have been doing cycling tours for almost 20 years in Europe. This is our first trip using a professional company and we could not be happier with the service, bikes, routes and overall trip. Hotels were good to very good overall. Food was excellent. Bikes were high end Canyon, many of which had Di2 electronic shifting.
