A ride in Italy’s wine region
Italy is synonymous with cycling. It’s an intrinsic part of Italian culture.
So is good food and Prosecco!
The team here at European Cycle Events have therefore put together a trip to include the best of what Italy has to offer; a cycle tour through the vine-clad, rolling hills of the Prosecco growing region of Northern Italy.
The stunning scenery, quiet roads and villages create the perfect setting from which to experience cycling in Italy at its best. Dudley Samuels, the founder of European Cycle Events has strong family connections in the area so his local knowledge will ensure that you will ride the routes that best suit what you want to do. There are so many great climbs, fasts descents and ‘bellavistas’ on the perfectly tarmaced road surfaces. With coffee stops never too far away that all adds up to make this such a special place to ride.
Then to make your Prosecco immersion complete we have arranged a visit to the beautiful Villa Sandi winery. The winery also has strong links to cycling and are the major sponsor of the Prosecco Cycling Gran Fondo, held to celebrate the new harvest at the end of every September. The cycling heritage in the region runs deep and Villa Sandi’s owner, Giancarlo Moretti Polegato, takes his front-of-the-grid spot very year and races alongside 2,000 other riders.
This isn’t a Gran Fondo, but the perfect opportunity to enjoy riding in Italy at its best, in a beautiful region at a pace that can be as testing, as relaxed or anywhere in between, that you choose.
