Associazione Abcycle is a registered Italian cycling association formed by a group of cycling enthusiasts living and riding in Abruzzo, Italia. We believe that the best way to travel in Italia is riding a bike. Since 1999 we provide road biketours to our members and we organize Bike Vacations in some of Italia's most lovable areas.
Our biketours address a wide range of cycling abilities. From sightseeing to training you can ride at your preferred speed. We have tours at fixed dates and tours that start weekly.
Fully van supported and with cycling guide(s). Support van with your luggage is within reach all day and it can be boarded at any time if you wish to take part or whole day off. Each rider is provided daily with a detailed map.
A van with an English speaking driver transports you and your bike from and to the Airport and moves your luggage from inn to inn. You are provided with daily maps with detailed itinerary and assistance on call.
We can organize custom tours from budget to luxury for different abilities. MAIL US asking for a Biketour designed according to your group preferences in terms of dates, accommodations, mileage, sideshows.
Double rooms w/bath in selected Agriturismi and 3 or 4 stars hotels. Singles available on request.
We put great care in choosing the right places to stay. Expect to find warm Italian hospitality and care for your comfort.
FOOD AND WINES
Despite the miles and climbs you will have an hard time losing weight. Our bike trips are also an excellent excuse for a dive in the local cuisine and wine scenes. Our selected Agriturismi are also producers of fine natural food: organic wheat, meats and cheeses, vegetables, wine, olive oil. The freshness of the ingredients and an unmatched cooking ability combine to offer you every day the real taste of the traditional, homemade, regional Italian cuisine.
While cycling is the core of our tours we like to offer our guests a full immersion in Italy's everyday life. In all our tours we include wine-tastings, visits to art landmarks, ancient villages, fine artisans and bike shops. When possible we like an after ride swim in the ocean believing that this is the best treatment for sore muscles.
