  • Descripción


    We are a small organization founded by two young men passionated in cycling and in love with their land.

    The first organization we founded is this association specialised in the promotion of sustainable mobility and cycliing tourism. We do believe that the bicycle is a powerful tool to talk about climate change, to be healthy, free and active in our life, to explore a new place!
    At the moment we lead a Tour operator which offers daily and weekly bike tour in Puglia. Our tour are completely unique (we mapped it) and they go through naturalistic, cultural and enogastronomic beautiness of our land. Our guests come mainly from north Europe and we are very active from the end of March to the beginning of November. At the moment the team si based on 5 person who works permanently (Carlo, Tiziana, Giorgia, Younes and my self Giulia) and on the high season we became at least 8. We are aged between 31 and 44 years old.

    Our mission is also about trying to create a positive impact at local level : we collaborate with local institutions, we support agricolture organizations, no profit organizations, people that share with us the value of environmentalism and slow mobility. So we organize workshop in the school, bike excursion with local people, meeting and conferenze about these themes. We hope in a better world, so we try to do our small part. At the moment we are active in an informal group that work in promoting cycling in the city of Lecce (LECCE PEDALA) and we belong to national network.

    Algo más...

    Salento is in the most south-eastern region of Italy lying in the so-called "heel of the boot". Situated in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, this region is filled with memories of the different civilizations that inhabited it, from the Messapii, to the Greeks, followed by the Romans and then the Normans. Crossing Salento with a bicycle is like cycling through an open-air museum. Prehistoric Dolmen, Byzantine shrines hidden in the caves, Baroque cathedrals, exclusive corners of the coast... are all but a few of the things you can see when visiting this area.
    Salento is famous worldwide for its traditional cuisine, which combines marine and earth flavours, and for its wine production, particularly of Primitivo and Negramaro grapes. Its unique combinations will delight all food and wine lovers. Come with open hurt and discover it!

    In salento is not easy to move with public means of transport. There are local trains but they are slow, often late and they don't work in the night, or in the festivity. We'll provide a bike to the volunteer and we advice/support in biking around the area of Salento. Life in Lecce is very nice, 'cause is a university city, small and alive. So if you'll stay in Lecce there is a lot to discover and enjoy!
