Velo Veneto’s focus on Performance Cycling Camps definitely lends itself to going fast more often than not, but that’s not all we’re about!
We created Escapes to be a time when we dial back the intensity a notch, dial up the exploration factor, and discover life as a local; on the bike, in the kitchen, and in the vineyard. We combine the best local riding, food, and wine in a week-long escape from reality. Forget the Strava bling for a few days and learn about new roads, new cuisines, and discover new wines.
Our professional staff cares for your bike. Massage is available to soothe tiring legs. Relaxing accommodations await at well-appointed 4 and 5-star hotels, bed and breakfasts, and yes the occasional castle or villa.
We use our local knowledge to introduce you to restaurants you wouldn’t find on your own, to winemakers you haven’t heard of, and, of course, to lead you down roads you might not ride on your own. Daily rides range from 40-100km (25-60 miles), and our increased guide and support car ratio means you’re free to ride at your own pace.
The relaxed pace of Velo Veneto Escapes makes them perfect to bring your non-riding spouse, partner, or friend along on. Our basecamp-style itineraries leave plenty of time for local exploring, hikes, or just relaxing by the pool. You’ll return home with a renewed appreciation for the bike – for the places it can take you, the friends you make, and the corners of the world you discover.
