Join the ElliptiGO Tour of Switzerland, Austria and Italy

Would you like to ride your ElliptiGO bike through some of the most breathtaking scenery on the planet? Enjoy great meals? Savor fine wine? The ElliptiGO Tour of Switzerland, Austria and Italy is back by popular demand! This amazing nine-day tour will run from Sept. 6-14, 2017. It is tailored for ElliptiGO riders and showcases the beauty and charm of these three countries like no other tour can. Last year, the tour sold out, and demand is already high for this year.  and the video below shows some of the amazing scenery it holds in store!

 

Three­- and four­-star hotels welcome you each afternoon, so this tour is comfortable. But we eschew the extra frills and coddling that make some “bicycle vacations” so expensive. Spouses and friends are welcome to join the fun. Here’s our first group photo on the shores of Lake St. Moritz last September.

Lynn and Pete van Nuys will once again lead the tour. They began leading bicycle tours for American Youth Hostels in the late 1960s. Pete worked in tour and travel marketing for 10 years before embarking on a career in the bicycle industry. The van Nuys now own Urban Bicycle Outfitters, a rental and retail business in San Clemente, CA. They offer weekly ElliptiGO rides from the shop, where they service and sell a range of bikes and ElliptiGOs.

The itinerary begins in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where you can set up your own ElliptiGO bike or check out your rental bike before the riding tour begins on Day 2. Each day you will ride between 22-40 miles through beautiful, historic valleys, mountains and villages. You will also have the option to climb the famous Stelvio Pass, which is often featured on the Giro d’Italia.

Merano, loved for history, shopping, and a fabulous spa.

Famous switchbacks mark Stelvio’s final 2,000 feet.

Shopping, dining, or just strolling are incredible.
