CYCLING ON THE AMALFI COAST

The Amalfi Coast is all about the drama of its scenery, its scattered villages, terraced slopes, high cliffs, the Lattari mountains, and not forgetting the sea. For the cyclist, the Amalfi Coast becomes a unique experience and apart from the scenery which surrounds you at every corner, your challenge will be the road of 1000 bends. You will be soaring high and enjoying the experience and the exhilaration which is the Amalfi Coast.

You will not be alone but will be guided by an ultra-endurance cyclist and writer. In December 2012, she set the first Guinness World Record as the fastest woman to circumnavigate the globe by bike, riding over 29,000km in a total time of 152 days.  ​Our cyclist has made the Amalfi Coast her home and she will allow you to set the pace by choosing different types of tracks, levels of difficulty, and distance, allowing this experience to engage all of your senses. The journey will head to a farm where you will enjoy a light lunch before heading back. Share her passion and her stories. 

This experience is simply unique.
