Cycle between the iconic Italian cities of Venice and Rome.
This exciting challenge takes us south on flat roads from the canals of Venice to the rolling hills of Tuscany and Umbria, passing terracotta-roofed towns and small traditional villages hidden among the fields of corn, fruit and olives.
Venice to Rome was always going to be a tough challenge; I'd ridden London to Paris a few years before and fully expected the difficulty rating to be accurate! I won't deny I was worried if I'd be able to finish, but with the enthusiasm and support of the crew and myfriends it was by far the most incredible thing I've ever done.
The terrain is hilly, with some long climbs and steep gradients – it’s wonderful cycling country, but not to be undertaken without training! You will come down out of the hills on the last day and have a relatively flat run-in to Rome, where we finish a stone’s throw away from some of the main sights. This trip combines diverse, challenging cycling with a wonderful Italian experience.
