SINCE 2005 ITALY’S LEADING CYCLING HOLIDAYS ON LAKE GARDA, VERONA AND BEYOND
Garda Bike Hotel (GBH) brings you custom bicycling holidays in one of the finest cycling destinations, the Lake Garda and Verona region of Northern Italy.
Our region offers a variety of terrain for a diversity of rides, all with spectacular scenery.
Since 2005, Brothers Alberto and Nicola Verdolin have created top quality cycling holidays with daily guided bike tours for recreational to competitive level cyclists.
Alberto and Nicola and their team know the people of this region along with their language and customs, the local food and wine, and the best cycling roads, providing you with an extraordinary and unforgettable Italian cycling holiday.
And, as an official PINARELLO rental center, you are assured to be riding with Italian style and performance.
Sister company, Andiamo Cycling offers the same quality cycling holidays to nearby iconic Italian cycling destinations (Dolomites, Lake Como, Italian Alps, Tuscany, to name a few) and participation in famous Italian cycling events & Granfondo (Maratona Dles Dolomites, Granfondos Strade Bianche, Pinarello, Il Lombardia, for example).
Whether at Garda Bike Hotel or on tour with Andiamo, we will make your dream Italian Cycling vacation come true.
WHY GBH ?
A LOCAL FAMILY BUSINESS
We know the area intimately. Unlike foreign tour-operators, Nicola & Alberto themselves are the bike managers and part of the guide team, all of whom live in the area. A holiday at this local establishment ensures an authentic Italian cycling experience and the hospitality will make you feel like part of the family.
3 RIDE LEVELS AND A FLEXIBLE WEEKLY PROGRAM
We have 3-4 daily guided rides to choose from, scaled for pace, distance, and level of climbing. Our terrain and our routes are varied and allow us to offer flatter rides, mountain rides and everything in between. Our weekly program takes into consideration the number and the level of our cycling guests, the weather forecast, and special ride events and requests.
We keep our rides small and personal with a maximum of about 30 cyclists per day, and small groups of 5-10 cyclists per guide. Each group has an exclusive guide and sometimes two guides to lead and look after the cyclists. If you are a group of friends, you always have your private guide and a custom program.
OFFICIAL PINARELLO BIKE RENTAL CENTER
We have more than 50 Pinarello bikes for rent, including the fabulous Pinarello Dogma F Disk (or the new Dogma X) with Shimano Di2 electronic shifting and the Pinarello Nytro eBike, among others. Additionally, we partner with several other Italian cycling companies (Ale’ kits, Vittoria tires), to provide you with an authentic Italian experience.
ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE ON YOUR SCHEDULE
There are no fixed days for your arrival and departure. You can plan your own itinerary and start and end your cycling holiday when and as you wish.
PERFECT LOCATION FOR TRAVELERS AND NON CYCLISTS
We are located within a reasonable distance to all the main airports of Northern Italy: Milan, Verona, Bergamo, Venice. The train station is one block from the hotel, making sightseeing and travel to and from other areas of Italy easy.
