The nice weather, that goes from March to November, the smooth near-flat terrain of the area, which can be appreciated by everybody (even families, or those at their first bicycle tour experience), the sea always two steps away, the plenty things to do, see… and taste! make Puglia the perfect destination for a cycling holiday.
The Mediterranean cuisine, the fine Negroamaro and Primitivo wines, and the beautiful ocean sunsets are a few more reasons... but we know delicious food, wine and sunsets may be found elsewhere! We offer you (also) more than that: not only places and flavors, but also – and mainly – the people.
If you travel with us, you meet the baker who uses an ancient Italian method to produce one-of-a-kind pastries, the restaurateur with a passion for Mediterranean cuisine, the economist turned into a farmer who has left finance to devote himself to the land, and the university graduate-turned-craftsman who has retrieved an ancient art.
Passion drives us. We are a group of friends who have decide to return to their home region in order to promote sustainable development of the area and to rediscover their home accompanied by travellers from all over the world.
We know our land intimately and we want to show it to you in the best way possible: by bike and by foot!
Salento Bici Tour is - first of all - a project with a focus on environmental education.
We aim to encourage the use of bicycles among local community, and to encourage everyone - both travellers and locals - to reflect on how our civilization interacts with our environment.
For us, Salento Bici Tour is not just a project: it is our way of life, a way of showing who we are, a way to meet new people and get to know new worlds!
We hope you would like to share this experience, whether for just a few days, or a beautiful week long trip.
