Newburyport MA, April 22, 2015 — ItaliaOutdoors Food and Wine ( says there is nothing like an Italy bike tour to make for the vacation of a lifetime.

Bike trips in Italy encompass so many wonderful things,” said Kathy Bechtel, co-owner, biker, hiker and Culinary Director. “We stop and enjoy incredible food and wine along our journey and the scenery as well as the Italian people are just fantastic.”

Many of the Italy bike tour vacations for 2015 are already sold out. But, there is still time to book your Italy bike tour. In September there are a few spots available to bike the wine Roads of Tuscany. There are also spots open to tour the Dolomites and Veneto in July.

“Many people and groups work with us to create their own private bike toursin Italy,” said Kathy. “There are countless cycling route options” she said, “from routes for beginning cyclists to routes for the most experienced cyclists,” she explained. “In our private bike tours, we also plan for food, wine-tasting and rests along the way. The important thing is to enjoy Italy your way and we make that happen.”
