Biking in Italy is a fantastic way to see the sights, but it’s important to keep safety in mind. After all, with hilly roads and new surroundings can lead to confusion and it’s important to keep aware of local customs. With that in mind, we’ve collected some tips that will help you keep safe (and on the right side of the law) while biking in Italy.
Cycle paths are mandatory – Italy has some fantastic bicycle paths and not only should you make use of them, you have to. If a bicycle lane or path is available and a cyclist opts for the roadway instead then they are breaking Italian law and can be subject to a fine. While our cycling trips are for road bikers, this is still important information to keep in mind.
