Bike Tour Cycles Through Culture, Food In Italy

bike tourThe Chefs On Bikes Tour is a guided cultural and cycling exploration of the culture, foods and wines of Northeastern Italy. Scheduled for June 24-30, the 7-day tour follows one of the former trade routes that distributed spices and goods from the East throughout Western Europe.

Hosted by specialty guide service Italiaoutdoors, cyclists learn from the culinary expertise of Chef Kathy Bechtel on a route covering 20-35 miles per day. The tour travels through the Veneto at the foot of the Dolomite Mountains and along the shores of the Adriatic Sea.

Recognizing the different riding levels of participants, the small-group size (maximum 8) allows for daily customization, including longer rides, and an immersive culinary and cultural experience.

Days typically begin with a scenic bike ride meandering through flat farmland, around volcanic hills and into the foothills of the Pre-Alps followed by a culinary exploration with cooking lessons and wine tastings led by Chef Bechtel.
Priced at $3895 per person, the program includes accommodations in four-star villa hotels, all transfers, all breakfasts and snacks, five dinners with wine, plus entry fees to museums and other venues. The program can also be scheduled as a private group trip of 4-12 cyclists.
