WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?
The experience is built for all riders able to ride for 3-5 hours. This is not a race or high intensity riding, but rather a true cycling adventure across one of the most picturesque countries in the world. We will ride as a group on the rolling terrain and as individuals or small groups on the short climbs, so that everyone will enjoy the ride. On top of each major climb we will regroup to celebrate and refill our bottles, and then enjoy the descent together. As a team, we’ll support each other during the ride and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy! All cyclists interested in exploring a new region and learning about local culture while amidst magnificent scenery will enjoy this incredible experience!
Everyday we will offer 2 riding options: a regular route for all kind of riders and one extension for anyone looking for an extra challenge!
