Road biking in Italy

Italy is famous for its road biking. Roadies the world over head to Europe’s bootleg to explore the country from the saddle. At our Airone Beachclub in the Gulf of Taranto, you can head out on one of our TREK road bikes - their lightweight frames will keep you pedalling for longer with less effort. Available in a range of sizes, they have all the gears you need to take on Italy’s road challenges. High in the hills you will come across traditional villages including Rossano, one of the areas most celebrated towns. Stop off here to soak up the sights and explore the warren of old streets, keeping an eye out for the town’s hidden delights.

Cycle at your own pace, slow enough to experience each place you pass through, but fast enough to clock up some serious mileage and see as much of Italy as you can. Our bike team also organise guided rides, all the mapping is done for you - just sit back, pedal and take in the scenery along the way.

Jump on a mountain bike and get right to the heart of Italy’s countryside. Escaping city life and pedalling through woodland tracks really helps you switch off, unwind and take on a new challenge. Cycling in Italy will see you wind through forest paths and take on some serious hills. 

Hop aboard one of our specially selected TREK mountain bikes and hit the trails. Our bikes are kept running smoothly so you can be confident they’ll keep you on the trails all day long. Head out on a solo ride to really get away from it all, or join one of our guided group rides. Our guides love to blaze through some fantastic routes that will really get your adrenaline pumping. Cycling holidays in Italy make the perfect family break - children aged 14 and up can join the rides if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Or, if your little ones prefer to stay active in the resort, they can join our kids’ clubs while you push your limits on the trails. When you’re ready to park up the bike for the day, unwinding in the swimming pool will soothe your muscles ready for another day exploring the coastline and hillsides of Calabria.
