• There is no need to be a professional sportsperson, but we do reccomend that you prepare for the tour with workouts levelled to the the chosen difficulty.
  • We recommend using clothing made specifically for cycling; dress in layers to best handle the changes in temperature during the different legs, and, of course, don’t forget a good pair of trousers/shorts with gel padding for your seat!
  • If you are renting one of our bikes, you will be equipped with a rear rack and special bags in which you can store items and clothing you’ll need for the day; we do not recommend the use of backpacks on your shoudlers because they will make you sweat a lot and their weight will be disruptive to your correct pedal strokes.
  • For those of you using your own bikes, both for Self and Guided programs, you should have them checked by an expert before departure and bring with you at least a spare inner tube and a multi-tool set for bicycles; we will of course be at your complete disposal and support if any unexpected situation should occur.
  • Good nutrition is essential to tackle a full day properly, especially by starting with a good breakfast to avoid dips in your in sugar reserves during your stages; hydrate to have the right amount of fuel to support your effort.
  • Let’s get your suitcase ready together: What should you really bring with you?
