The retro photo above illustrates a new slogan for 2013 - Ciclismo come una volta (cycling as it once was) which doesn't mean ANYTHING about our tours will change, more that we're pointing out that NOTHING is changing, unlike so many of our competitors who embrace the "newest-latest" rather than enjoy the time-tested classics, whether they're food, wine, bicycles or culture.
We'll celebrate 15 YEARS of pedala forte, mangia bene in 2013 with some special gifts and incentives to reserve your place before December 1, 2012. Below is a schedule of tours we hope will tempt you to do just that.
