Italiaoutdoors Food and Wine Welcomes Single Travelers with their Customizable Bike the Wine Roads of Umbria Tour
Solo travelers will enjoy bike route customization, pre- and post-tour travel planning, and no single supplement
NEWBURYPORT, Mass., July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Responding to requests for single traveler friendly tours, Italiaoutdoors Food and Wine, (www.italiaoutdoorsfoodandwine.com) is eliminating the single supplement on their upcoming Bike the Wine Roads of Umbria tour. Italiaoutdoors’ two owners personally guide each tour, supporting solo travelers with one-on-one consultations, trip customization and travel planning assistance.
Bike the Wine Roads of Umbria, September 29 – October 5, 2013, will feature cycling through the “Green Heart of Italy”, home to Umbria’s world-famous olive oils and wines. After cycling, guests can immerse themselves in Renaissance history or enjoy a snack of bruschetta and a glass of wine on a lovely piazza. Daily private tastings explore the wonderful, but relatively unknown wines of this region, from the crisp Orvieto to the robust Sagrantino.
All Italiaoutdoors Food and Wine cycling holidays are intimate experiences, limited to 8 guests, and go beyond the standard bike tour structure to offer customized routes, adaptable days, access to small producers, and immersion into the local culture as the group spends the week cycling “as a local.”
Italiaoutdoors Food and Wine owners, recreational specialist Vernon McClure and chef and wine guide Kathy Bechtel, work individually with each guest prior to the tour to learn their riding style and expectations. Routes are then designed, and adjusted daily on tour as needed, to provide each guest with a tailor made cycling experience
Casual cyclists are offered shorter routes and personalized coaching to make sure they are safe and relaxed. Experienced cyclists enjoy more miles, challenging climbs and exhilarating descents, with a GPS to allow them to explore at their preferred pace. McClure and Bechtel personally lead each tour, to ensure each traveler has an exceptional experience. Pre- and post-tour travel planning services are included, providing a complete travel package for each guest.
