As most of Sicily is very hilly, you should be aware of frequent ups and down. We have designed the route in order to touch as many 'must sees' as possible, but also to give you an impression of the beauty of the islands countryside. We will enjoy good food and wine and sleep in exciting locations.
All kinds of bikes are welcome, whether you have a road bike, mountainbike, city bike or even pedelecs. Depending on the number of participants we will cycle in several (at least two) teams with different speed levels.
The Global Biking Initiative (GBI) wants to show you the most interesting places in Europe the sportive way. We are proud of our international participants, that makes it easy for everybody to make new friends from other countries. Our main goal is the continuous support of charity projects worldwide. We achieve this by engaging the participants to raise funds that support charity projects in their home countries.
