“Bike in style with professionals”

Reviewed 9 September 2015

We recently made a tour in the Basque region of Spain with Montefusco Cycling which far exceeded our expectations. Most of the riders were very experienced and looking to do some serious climbing, my wife and I were new to this but in pretty good shape. Claudio and his team provided us with a beautiful and challenging (to say the least) collection of rides. At all times we felt safe and at every stop we were treated with provisions including much needed energy supplements. The hotels were great but Claudio, Jon and Adoni made the trip. Jon was the local expert and Adoni is a professional photographer who not only drove the support van but provided us with a collection of incredible photographs of our week.
If you want a safe, uncrowded, beautiful cycle trip in a place with fantastic views, excellent food and a good time with some great guides I cannot give a higher recommendation than one for Montefusco. If you are thinking of such a trip, in the words of Jon (incredible cyclist) at every stop “Let’s GO”

“Cycling in Basque – Memories of a lifetime”

 Reviewed 9 September 2015

My wife and I joined 3 other couples from the US to cycle Basque Country for four days. What an amazing time we had cycling and enjoying all the local culture! If you are considering a cycle trip in Spain, look no further than Claudio at Montefusco Cycling. The 8 of us converged in Hondarribia from various areas where Claudio, Jon, and Andoni transferred us to our first hotel. Every detail of the trip was well planned from the set-up of our bikes and route planning to guided tours of notable areas and restaurants in the region. The scenery we experienced was truly amazing as we were guided by Jon who was our expert ride leader. The routes were well planned with Andoni greeting us after a challenging section with a SAG van for a wonderful lunch. In between the SAG stops Andoni (a professional photographer) documented our journey with photographs that will be cherished. Thank you Claudio, Jon, and Andoni for producing an exceptional cycling experience in Basque and creating memories of a lifetime!
