Do you have a group of family or friends coming on holiday who would like the ultimate cycling experience on Lake Como? We offer custom tours with a tailor-made, single or multi-day cycling itinerary to accommodate your cycling abilities and interests. You will ride longer than the daily group tours and potentially on more challenging terrain, making for the most memorable holiday with our professional guides.
We also offer amazing on-of-a-kind tours in some of Italy's most scenic destinations. Alberto Elli has personally designed these holidays in his favorite cycling locations such as Sardinia and the Italian Alps. If you have always wanted the pro experience, his tours offer excellence not only in their logistics and organization, but in your own personal achievement.
With our Lake Como Custom Tours, each day your personal guide, such as our Cycling Manager and Tour de France legend Alberto Elli, will plan an unforgettable ride through ancient villages and on climbs made famous by the names of Coppi, Bartali and current pros like Aru and Nibali. The climbs include the mythical icons of the Giro di Lombardia such as the Ghisallo, Muro di Sormano, and Valcava, or more off-the-beaten-path rides to Passo Agueglio, Morterone, and neighboring Lake Lugano in Switzerland.
Not only will your custom tour give you the opportunity to see unique glimpses of Lake Como and the surrounding area, but you will also benefit from personal tips and ride coaching from Alberto. His decades of skills and knowledge from professional racing will be shared during each ride, offering an authentic and unforgettable cycling experience during your stay.
Our custom tours can be for one day or as long as you like. Contact us below and we'll start planning your personal cycling holiday!
Ready to escape the winter or keep your summer fitness going through the season? Alberto's favorite training destination is the Italian island of Sardinia. He has customzied week long tours to prime your legs for the season to come, or to keep your tuned legs rolling after a long season. Make those tan lines razor sharp by cycling under the warm Mediterranean sun.
Sardinia is famous for its white sandy beaches and azure blue waters. The shoreline roads wait for you to pedal and explore the island's natural beauty. After a day's ride, it's only natural to take a break in the refreshing waters, and then sit down to a fine meal of local fish, pasta, and wine. The next day? Ride and repeat!

If you have ever wanted to challenge yourself on the kings of the Italian Alps, Alberto has designed the ultimate tour. Not only will you climb the iconic Stelvio (from two sides), Gavia, and Mortirolo, you will begin your adventure from Hotel Il Perlo in Bellagio. Your first day will be pedaling the flat lakeside road of Lake Como, then into the Valtellina valley that leads to the Alps.
Each day will bring encouragement and professional advice from Alberto, who intimately knows these climbs from his years racing up their steep grades and endless switchbacks.
