When it comes to jumping, or I should say biking, off the beaten path, we must choose our guides wisely. I’ve been researching a few options and wanted to share one DuVine discovery…
The Who, What & Where
DuVine Cycling and Adventure Company designs and leads luxury bike trips in the world’s most amazing places – from the rolling hills of Tuscany and storied medieval villages of Provence, to the Andean foothills of Argentina’s wine country and the lush vineyards of Sonoma.
Young professionals can get in gear in a classic cycling region like Tuscany, Umbria, Piedmont or Provence, but more adventurous spots like the Galapagos and Croatia may appeal.
I’m also not surprised that Mallorca is becoming popular with epic scenery and incredible food and wine. I drove around the island way back, but I can imagine biking the island would be miles better.
Can’t cross the Atlantic? There are also tours that open up the Santa Barbara coastline and wine country. Their Cape Cod trail diverts through super scenic Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, and allows you to dig into the freshest seafood.
Do I have to have experience?
Don’t sweat this one. Duvine accommodates the Weekend Rider and the Competitive Pros so guests are never out of their depth.
What goes on tour…
In Tuscany, discover medieval fortresses and renaissance masterpieces before winding down the day at a private cantina. While in Piedmont, Duvine guides introduce sweeping vistas of the Dolcetto and Moscato vineyards before lunching at a tucked-away ristorante. And speaking of mangia, Piedmont is the birthplace of the Slow Food Movement.
The personal touches…
Biking is one of the very best ways to travel and soak up local culture. Supremely satisfying food and drink combines with luxe accommodations to deliver a truly unique and authentic experience. Seasoned guides call on their extensive knowledge to orchestrate engaging and authentic visits, inviting travellers to partake of the best of the best in the region of choice.
