  • Ride support

    In the interest of keeping the rides simple and the cost lower, there will not be a support vehicle. Your host and ride leader Jeff has many years of experience working on bikes and will carry all of the tools and equipment necessary for roadside maintenance.

  • Apartments

    For $2100, you will share an apartment with one other guest. All guests have their own bedroom, and share a living room, bathroom, and kitchen. We also offer group discounts, as well as private, single-bedroom apartments.

  • Breakfast and lunch

    Breakfast will be independent. We recommend you get started in the morning with a light, Italian-style breakfast. Look forward to espresso, fruit, and fresh bread with jams and nutella (if you don't know what nutella is, you're in for a treat). For lunch, we will enjoy something at the agriturismo.

  • Dinner

    We invite you to exploring some of the culinary delights from local restaurants. These are some of the hidden gems that Valentina has found while living in Umbria for her whole life. We will assist with direction and transportation, as long as you provide the appetite

    The cost of dinner is not included in the cost of the vacation. In Italy, it's tradition to divide the price of dinner by the number of people present; a two-course meal with wine usually costs €25–30 per person.

  • Cooking

    If you prefer to prepare your own meals, all apartments have a kitchen that is fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, and plates. There is a daily market about 1 kilometer from the agriturismo where you can get all you need to make dinner at home. We will provide transportation to a larger market on Monday afternoon.

  • Laundry

    On Thursday, we will send around a laundry basket for your cycling kit. We will wash it and hang it out to dry so it will be ready for you in the morning. Other laundry services are available for an additional cost. We will change towels or sheets once during the week.

  • Internet access

    The Casale I Perugini has a WiFi hotspot which is free for you to use.
