Avid cyclists with wanderlust and discerning palates will appreciate InGamba’s world-class cycling vacations. Bruce Hotaling has embarked on these memorable journeys with Joao Correia and company with rides along some of the most beautiful scenic roads through Italy’s Chianti wine country. Every aspect of your experience is anticipated – from the clothing and equipment you’ll need, to accommodations and a coffee break along the route. When they say they’re passionate about riding, food, wine and culture they do not say so lightly.
In addition to your guides, your group is accompanied by a full-time mechanic and a mythical soigneuer who make your rides, and recoveries, worry-free. Racing quality bicycles are provided for your journey, as well as InGamba’s famous rain bag with a full outfit including jersey, shorts and accessories, as well as your souvenir cap and tee.
Food and drink are as integral to the enjoyment of the trips as is the riding. You’re not just eating at a tourist restaurant – you are savoring the culture and cuisine of a region prepared by the best chefs and restaurants that cannot be found in a guidebook. In addition you will enjoy unique cultural activities and an insider’s knowledge of the places you visit. You’ll immerse yourself in a world most visitors never even know exists.
InGamba trips are led by former procyclist Joao Correia, who also taps his connections and invites fellow pros along for the ride. You’ll meet current and professional cyclists, not just for a handshake or autograph, but for a draft, some encouragement, and maybe even a little torture followed by the best dessert of your life. Some of our pro guests have included Ted King (Cannondale), Laurens Ten Dam (Blanco), Stefan Denifl (iAM) and Sergio Paulinho (Saxo Bank-Tinkoff).
