What our Clients Say


  • Thank you for showing us how the Passoni Bikes are made. I did not know what to expect when I took one of your test bikes out for a ride but it was a real pleasure. I would also like to say our week was made all the more enjoyable by having Clive and John as hosts. I have been fortunate enough to be involved in the sports industry all my working life and have seen numerous brands and products being showcased. In this regard Clive and John are among the best and first class ambassadors for Passoni
    Peter (Passoni Experience)
  • I surprised myself on the two harder climbs, Mortirolo was super tough, but the feeling when I reached the top was well worth it - descending was a blast. The Hotel was great too, nice and clean and such friendly staff. I'm definitely coming back and wouldn't hesitate to do it through you guys again.
    Richard (Bespoke Holiday)

Ride Difficulty

No cycling holiday can be enjoyed without the right amount of challenge and the right amount of coffee breaks. We pride ourselves on getting to know our clients and have a range of different packages that cater for all levels of ability and cycling aspirations. Of course one riders ‘easy’ is another riders ‘medium’ but we hope with the information we have given in our itineraries and support and advice we give before booking that everybody finds what they are looking for.

 Below is how we categorise our cycling breaks. If you are unsure about anything or have any questions then we will be delighted to answer your questions.

 Barbaro – Packages designed by people who enjoy pain! If you are a rider that gets a thrill from hours in the saddle and riding uphill on a regular basis then these trips are for you. An excellent level of fitness is needed as the demands placed on you and the bike from riding one of these packages is savage! 

 Difficile – It is too easy to say that these packages are for club cyclists. However they are for club cyclists along with riders who take cycling and training seriously. An appetite for long distances and riding uphill are needed as the rides will be long, challenging and at times fast.

 Medio – Designed with the average cyclists in mind these packages offer the rider the chance to experience flats, rolling hills and the odd mountain top finish. If you have realised your days in the pro peleton are over or indeed they are just not going to happen but you still love cycling then these holidays are for you.

Facile – If you are booking on one of our ‘Easy’ packages then prepare yourself for plenty of flat riding and flat white coffees. These steady paced and enjoyable weeks are designed to appeal to those looking for a holiday with cycling.
