Long time PEZ-fans know how we feel about riding in Italy - and why over the years we've logged enough of our own travel miles around the Italian boot to open our own travel agency. We've stayed a a lot of hotels there and can tell you with complete confidence that the Garda Bike Hotel is one of the best.
One of the best reasons for choosing a good bike hotel is their skill to show me the best their region has to offer - like routes, rides, food & drink that I simply could not find on my own. This ride (and subsequent wine tasting) never would have have happened without my guide from Garda Bike Hotel leading me on a relaxed ride through the hills of valpolicella and an even more relaxed stop at the Santa Maria Valverde winery.
Congratulations to Bill Buckton of Port Elgin ON - winner of the one week cycling holiday for two with Bici Amore Mio at Italy's best bike hotels. As a loyal PEZ-Fan, Bill is duly excited to start planning one of the best riding weeks of his life.
As part of our stay with Garda Bike Hotel for the Pez 10th Anniversary, we signed up to ride the GF Damiano Cunego in nearby Verona. Our hosts Nicola & Alberto know the region, the people, and handled all the details for our stay in Lake Garda, which left nothing for us to do except enjoy the ride.
Here's one of the best travel / cycling / travel for cyclists videos I've seen - and I'm not just saying that because Nicola & Alberto at Garda Bike Hotel are good guys and great hosts. Take a look and see for yourself.

As part of our PEZ 10th Anniversary celebration – some of the PEZ-Crew & I spent a week riding our bikes in Italy – and a few unforgettable days on Lago di Garda at the Garda Bike Hotel. It’s a bike hotel in the very best ways, and one you should know if you’re planning to visit the area.
While many of us in North America are familiar with the famous climbs and locations of the Giro and other Italian races, the beauty of Lake Garda is not so well known as a cycling destination. But it should be. And Garda Bike Hotels offer two perfect bases for a cycling holiday.
