28 June to 06 July - If lakes are to your liking, choose Lombardia for your spot of biking! Classy Italian road cycling in this beautiful part of Italy.
I would happily repeat every day again...
The holiday was extremely well organised throughout. We had a fantastic time and now we‘re looking forward to our next holiday with you. We sampled great company, stunning scenery, wonderful food and good accommodation.
Every day was different but all of them thoroughly enjoyable. The information provided was excellent. All in all very good value for money!
Already planning my next Skedaddle trip...
Everything was excellent: bike, lunches, diners, locations, guides etc….were at the usual Skedaddle level – unbeatable!
Difficult to find fault!
Rides, hotel, food all good. My feeling is Naomi (tour guide) just about always get it right in leadership and organisation.
Thanks for yet another great holiday...
The cycling was wonderful – and proved just the challenge I was after. The hotels were first rate which was great after a hard day in the saddle. The guides all spoke English and were extremly helpful and supportive.
All of the days on this trip were excellent. Our guides Naomi and Christina were excellent too!
An excellent Skedaddle holiday...
Our guides Naomi and Christine were a great combination of skill, attentiveness and personality. They would be my top choice for guides on any holiday.
David, Adam and Kerry in the office were all excellent. Very helpful and responsive.
The tour does exactly what it advertises itself as. The route of the tour was fantastic, delivering some challenging riding in spectacular surroundings. The climbs on all days were enjoyable; especially up to S.Pietro and to Maniva. The traverses/descents through the gorges were great and obviously along the lake shores as well – bike paths were also interesting and relaxing. The tour leader was really great and she dealt most admirably with the group dynamics.

The hardness of the climbing was about what I was looking for – not super hard, but challenging, and some really fun descents. I was a little nervous about hiring a bike, but I was really happy with the bike I got.
We didn’t know what to expect, having never done a group cycling holiday before. The service was outstanding – guides were both organised and reassuring.

Naomi is a great guide and organiser. Very enthusiastic about her job, which is always a pleasure to see! I loved the cycling! The pass to the coffee stop on top with the band playing was very memorable.
Naomi’s lunches are deservedly legendary. We had some great meals. Especially in Bellagio and Riva Del Garda. Fair prices too. Nothing phased Massimo. He’s a delightful man and a very good cyclist. I tried to catch him up a couple of climbs but he always had that bit extra. I received all the pre-trip information I needed and the pre-departure call from David is customer service as it should be.
Superb tour leader! Vanessa was incredibly professional, and ensured everyone understood the routes, how to regroup, and the stops during the day. She made sure everyone completed each day safely, yet still had an excellent ride covering all abilities. Vanessa was a fantastic tour lead, with a dry sense of humour and always charming. She made certain no stone was unturned in making sure that everyone was very well looked after.
I would go so far as to say that this is one of my favourite ever holidays!
There wasn’t a single problem with hotels, meals etc. Lunch’s etc were efficient and delicious – although having seen pictures of Vanessa’s lunch’s – I’ll have to come back for one of those!
