Cycling allows you to step off the usual well-trodden tourist trails and take a more sensitive approach to the environment, and it is the ideal way to get about if you want to see places that you couldn’t reach by any other means of transport. At the Antica Locanda Luigina we welcome cyclists and provide a bike room equipped with everything required for repairs and mechanical breakdowns, a bicycle storage facility with restricted access, and a changing room.
The hotel also offers a laundry service for sports clothing; another advantage of staying with us, if you like to get around by bike. Our cycling facilities are also available to guests who arrive at the hotel without a bicycle; bicycles can be hired by advance booking and deciding which route you intend to follow.
The hotel has an arrangement with DeepBike (http://www.deepbike.com) company that organises guided tours around the local area and which can be adjusted to suit the ability of participants (beginner, basic or expert).
