Cycling the Italian Alps as never before!
By Allan Halsall
ActivityBreaks main activity centre in the Lower Alps is located in the middle of some spectacular passes and lakes and on the route often taken by the Giro D’Italia tour. Using this unique location, where Activity Breaks also have an office and hotels, the company have launched a brand new exclusive group cycling package which is available now.
This new package is aimed at cycling enthusiasts as the break includes daily cycling excursions up and down some of the famous tour routes. You are required to bring you own bike, which is the preference of many serious road cyclists instead of riding a hired bike.
The cycling package is aimed at cycling groups of 8-10 or 16-20 persons and includes your own private professional guide who will lead each excursion and can tailor it to your group’s requirements in a briefing session at the start of the Holiday. This makes this package perfect for Cycling Clubs, Societies and of course just groups of friends too.
It isn’t all about the cycling however, as you are staying at the 4* Rizzi Aquacharme, an accredited “Italy Bike Hotel” with storage and maintenance facilities and just 50 mins from Milan Bergamo airport. The package includes daily afternoon access to the hotel’s fabulous spa and also to the extensive fitness centre room (worth 30 Euro per day) to soothe or tone those tired muscles. The package is on half board basis with a specially created cyclist menu in the highly regarded Acero Rosso restaurant.
Breaks are from 3 to 7 nights, with a 3 night package starting from just €265pp including 2 excursions and the option to create bespoke packages.
This unique package is a great reason why cycling groups and enthusiasts across the country will not be discovering the beauty of the Italian Alps and lakes this summer from the saddle of their own bike!
