There are many ways to see the Italy that we see in all the picturesque travel guides and postcards. One way to explore the beautiful sights of Italy and also maintain fitness is to enjoy road cycling trips and tours with Inspired ITALY.
While fitness is at the heart of these tours, there is also a chance to experience the local sights and culture as well. Inspired ITALY offers a variety of tours that suit any cyclist, no matter their experience level. Though these trips are aimed towards more experienced adventurers, all are welcome.
Some emphasise more on experiencing Italian culture while others are more focused on fitness. Cycling trips offer a blend of physical activity and vacation, which takes you through an experience of Italy you can’t do otherwise. No matter what option you choose, it’s a unique experience.
Led by Tim Hudson, a British skier, cyclist and hang-glider pilot, Inspired ITALY started from a group of friends travelling to different parts of Italy and creating lifelong memories. Since then, he has combined his own passions of cycling and skiing and his love for Italy to benefit all. All trips are led by experienced cyclists.
