Is it possible that the Italians are even more passionate about cycling than the French?

Who knows. What is beyond dispute is that many of the greatest names in cycling history are Italian: Fausto Coppi, Gino Bartali and Marco Pantani to name a few. Plus it’s the world centre of luxury bike and bike clothing manufacture.

Cycling in Italy is a dream

The roads are incredible: the Dolomites are mountain heaven, the Italian Alps and Lakes are legendary.

Plus Italian food is world famous, the climate is hospitable and the coffee is excellent.
