SV:Travel -- the travel division of Studio Velo -- travels to some of the most incredible riding destinations in the world. From local trips to Napa and Sonoma and cycling adventures down the southern and northern California Coast to the Eastern Sierras of California and the European adventures in the Alps and beyond, SV:Travel offers unique travel adventures on and off the bike with many unique twists.
Our 2014 schedule starts with a special trip in April and continues throughout the year; we welcome you to join us on a one-day, multi-day and week-long cycling adventure. You won't be disappointed.
This year's first trip to southern Spain, known more for the remote White Villages and less for the quite, smooth valley roads, is the year's highlight. This trip is for moderate to advanced riders who will be challenged by 6-7 days of riding. We the return to the North Coast of California again, with a 2-day option in May. Following a short break, we couldn't resist going back to Northern Italy, famous for its food and remote climbs and valley roads. We will finish the year with a skills clinic in Napa Valley, only after we climb the famous roads of the Eastern Sierras of California in September. Please feel free to contact email@example.com for questions about any one of the below trips. 2014 promises to be a memorable year on the road with SV: Travel.
ITALY Cycling Adventure - (July 26st - August 2nd) - Sold Out
We simply couldn't resist re-visiting this special region of northern Italy in 2014: Piedmont, Italy. Finding the right combination of unique, fresh Italian food, drink, rides and luxury accommodations is never easy. However, we found it last year and decided to go back! All rides will depart from our 4-star hotel where you will experience the best of northern Italy. We will ride some of the famous Giro routes as well as the hills of the Lange Region, while also spending time at some of Italy's most unique wineries in Barolo & La Morra. If you are looking for a moderate cycling adventure this year that will reward you on all levels, this one is for you. Limited to 12.
