Global Cycling With Local Character

We often wonder: what is it about bicycling that moves people so deeply?

Is it the universal thrill of balancing on two wheels that unites people across diverse cultures and thousands of miles? Is it the bicycle’s size and human-powered pace, which are ideal for navigating the back alleyways, country roads and wilderness paths that reveal a place’s true nature? Or is it sheer exertion that causes air to feel fresher, food to taste better, sleep to be sounder, and all worldly cares to fall by the wayside?

Whatever it is about bicycling that moves you, there’s no denying the magic of exploring the world by bike.

Since our first guided cycling tour of Italy in 1972, our family pastime has become a family business, our bicycle routes are now found in more than 20 countries, our people have been recognized with awards, our customers keep coming back, our library of resources is flourishing, and our reputation—as one of the longest-running, most trusted companies in the business—makes us beam with pride.
