JAPAN

The Southern Island of Japan

May 12 - 18, 2019

 

No place rivals Japan when it comes to providing an abundance of incredible experiences in a small amount of space. We’re offering a unique departure to explore Japan’s longest cycle friendly bicycle bridge system in the world, the Shimanami Kaido. Followed by a remote ride through the foothills into Hiroshima with a visit to the Peace Memorial-a World Heritage Site.

The remainder of our trip sees us travelling further south by the high-speed Shinkansen train to the third largest island of Japan-Kyushu. A mountainous region known for its soaring volcanic peaks, steaming hot springs, peaceful beaches and slow-paced living. We will further explore this amazing island by bike, staying in traditional ryokan inns along the way.

CORSICA

Porto Vecchio, Sartene, & Corte
6 days

September 8 - 14, 2019

 

Corsica, with its Italian and French history and rebellious, independent spirit, feels far removed from the mainland – and it is all the better for it. With 650 miles of unspoilt palm-fringed coastline, a spine of wild, rugged mountains soaring to 10,000 ft., and an almost unlimited choice of challenging, winding roads – not to mention a robust and delicious local cuisine – it’s an utterly seductive destination for cyclists.

Ride the Corsican roads that, thanks to the ideal conditions, have become a standard training ground for professionals, with sublime cliffs and wild forests known to inspire riders to perform at their highest level. We should expect the same on the climbs of our ride, and all will be rewarded as we savor the finest cuisine and lodging the region has to offer.

  • Transportation: All ground transport included and on the road vehicle SAG support.

  • Arrival Airport: Figari-Sud Corse (FSC)

  • Departure Airport: Calvi-Sainte-Catherine (CLY)

I had a wonderful time! The northern Girona region of Spain is stunning and our daily ride route provided the perfect balance of challenging terrain and rewarding views. Ultimately, it was the people involved that made this trip so memorable - smart, FUNNY, positive, thoughtful, engaging and curious. A very special group. The SV Travel team exceeded expectations w/ this tour, and did an incredible job orchestrating the many elements (group dynamics, home base location, daily routes, menus, cultural activities, hospitality and support) that made the 2018 Girona Trip such a success. The food deserves special recognition -locally sourced, fresh, festive, plentiful, and beautifully presented. SO good! Muchas Gracias and Bravo SV Travel. Looking forward to more adventures in the saddle together in 2019!

Studio Velo trips are the highlight of our year for several reasons. First, impeccable and thorough attention to detail make it a true vacation. We don't have to plan, think, or take responsibility for anything, knowing we can trust the team.Secondly, the camaraderie between guests most often leads to new friendships post trip. Thirdly, discovering new regions and the local culture expands our cultural horizons. Fourthly, tailoring the rides to the groups ability both challenges and expands each individuals ability as a cyclist. Lastly, plain and simple, great fun!

The Ladies MOOTS trip with SV:Travel exceeded my expectations on every level. Not only was the experience of Colorado's mixed terrain on world-class gravel bikes from MOOTS stellar, the SV Staff made participating easy and the entire trip turn-key.

The SV team hosted an exceptional trip. The road selections were scenic and had virtually no cars, the food was healthy and exceptionally delicious and local, safety was always a priority. The guides did an excellent job making the trip challenging and enjoyable for a wide range of cycling abilities. The support staff were talented and skilled, including the bike mechanic and massage therapist. I'm looking forward to next year's trip!

-- Nick R. Southern France, June 2018


The France trip is our third SV Travel trip in five years, and we're already looking forward to the next one. As always, we found ourselves at a charming property that, on first glance, seemed more like an intimate destination wedding setting than a place from which to stage epic bike rides. From there, I loved that I could challenge myself on a well-thought-out mix of scenic and challenging rides, knowing that SAG, recovery, great food and wine, great company, and relaxation were all well taken care of. On the road, it was great knowing that the staff had the skills to route around changing weather and conditions, while coordinating and supporting multiple levels of skill and fitness. Even my wife, who doesn't ride, loves these trips for the wonderful dining and company, singular sites and itineraries, local connections, and photo ops that just don't exist in the broader market. Keep up the good work, and we'll be back for another one!

I showed up not knowing anyone and left with a dozen new friends.
