Useful tips for a bike tour:

Departure is approaching and you’re wondering… what should I put in my luggage?

Here are some tips for your cycling holiday:

1 The right “attitude”: with the right attitude you are ready to face everything!
Whether you’re going on a tour in freedom, as a group, as a couple, with your family, camping or on a boat, the right attitude is the first thing to put in your backpack!

2 A sturdy and “trustworthy” bike
It is essential to start with the right bike, suitable to face days of intense use on roads of all kinds … without falling apart! Maybe your beloved city-bike is not the right vehicle for this task? Don’t be afraid! With us you can always rent a comfortable bike suitable for your needs and the chosen route. But even those who do not want to abandon their faithful bike are welcome!
Finally, if you don’t want to work too hard, we always have E-Bikes available,

3 Waterproof jacket, and sun protection
We can arrange everything for your trip… but we can’t do anything for the weather. So keep an eye on the weather forecast and always bring a waterproof jacket/jacket, sunscreen cream and several layers of clothes with you (you are expecting “onion” clothes).

4 Sportswear
Provide some cycling pants or underwear (padded) when I get off the bike at the end of the day you will be happy to have worn them!

5 Sports shoes
Comfortable sports shoes for cycling and short excursions.
The use of a helmet is not compulsory in all countries, but for your own safety, it is best not to get on the saddle without adequate head protection. Especially for the little ones!
