Benvenuto a CycleItalia: This is a match made in Paradiso!
We’ve married our unabashed passion for Italy with our extensive experience leading high-performance bicycle tours to produce hand crafted, small-group Italy bike tours that we personally guide through cycling heaven – Italy. In no other country will you feel such respect for the sport of cycling. Come share the Italian passion for all good things in life: friends, food, wine, beauty… and the sport that comes from the heart.
CycleItalia ciclismo come una volta (cycling like it used to be)
CycleItalia began, as many things do, as a “better mousetrap” idea. We enjoyed the better part of a decade working with one of the first operations to offer challenging cycling tours in Europe for cycling enthusiasts. When they took their first group to Italy in 1989, Heather and Larry were there – in fact that’s how we met.
Passion — We chose the name CycleItalia because we believe the best place on earth to be a cyclist or cycling enthusiast is Italy. No other country comes close. We’re not just passionate about Italian cycling, we’re passionate about everything Italian, including the food, wine, culture and lifestyle.
Each summer we share our passion for “la dolce vita in bicicletta” with you, either on our guided tours or by helping you produce your own “Fai da Te” self-guided adventure. Heather and Larry are not only the owners of CycleItalia, they personally guide every tour. We know Italy better than most Italians. You’re treated as “friends of friends” everywhere you go, enjoying the benefits of long-term relationships that are just not possible on tours staffed by hired guides, no matter how professional or courteous.

COMBINED POSTAGE FOR THE PURCHASE OF SEVERAL ITEMS
Our internal shipping charge calculator will tell you the cost of your postage prior to your checkout. In most cases buying more than 1 item will result in cost savings to you.
- Small items up to 500g cost around $7 postage. Depending on the weight and size you will get 2 sometimes 3 small items posted for this amount.
- Most larger items post for about $12 and you will generally be able to add 1-3 small items at no extra charge
- Once you purchase products over 3 kg in weight there is generally, only a small amount of extra postage charged
COMBINED SHIPPING CHARGES FOR BULKY ITEMS
You can add smaller items together with bulky items and there will generally be no or a small added postage cost. Ordering items such as 2 bike cases may not result in any savings due to their volume. Ordering mid-size items like two fluid trainers together will result in very good savings though. You will get your quote for shipping costs before you checkout.
