Bikes have never been more in vogue in a post-London 2012 society, what with Sir Bradley Wiggins and Sir Chris Hoy overcoming extreme obstacles to win everything bike-related - or so it felt like with the constant fawning coverage of their achievements – and being knighted for their heroic sporting efforts.
Going for a bike-ride is great. It can be both viciously good exercise or just pleasingly relaxing, a chance to burn fat or simply chew the fat with a biking pal while taking in some stunning scenery – and with a new holiday package from Palazzo Seneca, you can do that in one of Italy's wildest and most beautiful parks!
Enjoy three nights at Palazzo Seneca with two full days of cycling – ideal for families and couples - through the dramatic landscape of the Sibillini National Park along rivers, waterfalls, secluded lakes, gorges and peaks. Gourmet lovers will also have the chance to visit regional cheese producers and sample the local specialities en route as well as in a cookery class at Palazzo Seneca.
For the more serious cyclists and aspiring athletes, Palazzo Seneca are offering a trip with a local biking expert guiding you off the beaten track through the unspoilt valley roads and mountain passes in the Sibillini National Park. This programme will be challenging and not for the faint hearted.
While the possibility of gold medals, knighthoods and national acclaim is minimal, if you are still intrigued by the opportunities available then visit www.palazzoseneca.com for more information.
