The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
Our little secret in Italy
Piemonte feels like our little secret. Good thing, because if word got out, we’d have to share it. Out here, charming inns act like mile markers along spectacular bike routes through rolling hills of vines, hazelnut groves and secluded villages. As the home of Barolo, Barbaresco, great pasta (which we’ll learn to make with an expert chef), the region tastes as good as it looks. Then, it’s off to an unforgettable afternoon with a real trifulao (truffle hunter) in search of the prized white truffle of Alba.

B&R travel is seamless. The pre-trip informational packet was amazing, the guides were awesome, the food was delicious, the wine was flowing and our fellow riders were great! We loved our experience and would definitely return to ride skinny tires with your company again.— Julianne Major
The outfitters’ six-day biking or walking excursion through the birthplace of the Slow Food movement features visits to nougat-makers, beekeepers, vintners and three or four Michelin-starred restaurants. First-time biker? Stick to the walking tour. Even with just a glass (or two) of Barolo on board, the hills are a challenge.Departures
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
The riding varies, with all varieties of uphill and down (and even occasionally flat). Roads are delightfully quiet, although with the occasional short rough patch. Both hybrid and road bikes are perfectly suitable for this trip’s terrain and roads.
“I bike about once a week at home.”
Gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort. Layover days accommodate varying preferences.Read more on our Activity Levels
