Cycling tour group on its way to Bermuda
A Boston-based adventure tour operator is poised to bring a group of leisure road cyclists on a tour of Bermuda next weekend.
The tour will be the first offered by Ciclismo Classico in Bermuda, and the inaugural group will consist of eight visitors.
As part of the tour, the group are set to pedal more than 50 miles, spend a half-day kayaking and enjoy the island’s food and culture while staying at Newstead Belmont Hills.
Detailing the tour, the company’s website states: “Even if you have been to Bermuda before, experiencing the tropical isle with a British flair at the slower pace of a bicycle allows you to savour the views, colours, and flavours most visitors never see.
“Just a two-hour flight from the East Coast of the US, our getaway will let you ride the entire island, explore its waters via clear-bottom kayak, and savour local flavours with decorated chef and cyclist Jean Claude Garzia.”
While most of the Ciclismo Classico’s tours are in Europe, a spokesman said the company saw an opportunity in Bermuda to replicate the key components of its European experiences: beautiful, smooth roads with scenic views, rich history, diverse culinary offerings and warm and friendly people.
And, based on feedback on the tour, the company is looking to offer additional trips next year.
Joe Luchison, director of operations, added: “When I thought about our ideal traveller, I realised that our existing client-base matched perfectly with what Bermuda has to offer and with the island’s target visitor.
“Combining that with the growing appeal of road cycling and Bermuda’s proximity to North America, it makes for the ideal long weekend to enjoy the island in a way few other travellers experience.”
