If you’ve ever considered a bike trip to Italy, chances are that you’ve come across a company called Ciclismo Classico. Celebrating its 30thanniversary this year, they offer rides like Cinque Terre & Tuscany, A Feast in Umbria and Majestic Dolomites. Italy-obsessed biking enthusiasts know they’ll get a great workout, feats on regional specialties and immerse themselves in the culture, which is why the company has an astonishing 75 % repeat traveler factor and gets raves for their local guides.
