New Road Cycling Holidays to Italy

STORY BY Patrick 3rd March 2022

Italy cycle holidays specialist, Inspired Italy, has launched a number of brand-new holidays for summer 2022 that offer road cyclists a variety of options depending on their fitness levels and ambitions.

The holidays include a week with YouTube cycling instructor, Luis Scott, a week with Leonard Lee (YouTube The Jolly Good Velo), e-road cycling Grand Tour of Tuscany and Road Cycling in Italy for the Middle Aged Cyclist.

The trips have been designed for the 45 to 65 age group but aren’t age restricted in any way.

All of the holidays are run by the experienced team at Inspired Italy, led by Tim Hudson, a British skier, cyclist and hang-glider pilot who set up the business 2012, with Dolomite ski safaris in the winter and Tuscan wine and bike tours during the summer.

These new holidays focus more specifically on the road cycling market and they include personal FTP tests using the Magnetic Days training system.

Managing Director of Inspired Italy, Tim Hudson, said: “I have always had a bike but I have never considered myself a cyclist. At 61 that changed. I have multiple road bikes, mountain bikes and I even have a smart trainer which I love. And I have friends, good friends who are cyclists. So having a tour operator business I wanted to curate new cycling experiences for the middle aged cyclist, people like me in the heart of Italy, a truly perfect setting for a great cycling experience”.


Ride with YouTube cyclist Luis Scott: June 4th, 2022. From £1,875 per person, including 7 nights half-board accommodation, airport transfer, 6 rides with Luis, local excursions, maximum 12 cyclists.

Road Cycling in Italy for the Middle Aged Cyclist: dates throughout May to October 2022. Cost from £1,586 per person including 7 nights half board accommodation, guiding, bike rental and much more. It’s about keeping healthy for longer. It’s about a personal challenge, riding a little faster, a bit further and maybe taking on rides that you wouldn’t normally consider. It’s exploring your older body and having a good heart.
