Gourmet Bike Tours for Food Lovers

Run an online search for bike tours, and you’ll find the proverbial yellow pages. Narrow down your search by looking for a gourmet bike tour. These trips are designed to be different from regular ones. Keep reading this article before you take a guided tour.

1. Savor gourmet cuisine and local delights

If you’ve always wanted to eat good food, a gourmet tour is the perfect opportunity. As the afternoon light dwindles away, join the rest of the group for a nice meal. Don’t feel like eating at a fancy restaurant every day, that is fine! Your tour guides will recommend a more traditional restaurant.

 

2. Snacking along the way

If you’ve ever been on a self-guided bicycle trip, riding a bicycle on your own must have been difficult. A self-guided tour usually is more for professional bicycle riders than for recreational cyclists. On guided tours, regardless of your overall fitness level, food and drinks are provided along the way. So, take a break and snack on fresh fruit picked from nearby orchards.

At DIGnGO, we always use the freshest ingredients to boost your energy level. Energy bars are always good because you need those extra carbohydrates for the road ahead. Fat-filled foods aren’t on the menu. Sugar and protein will come from granola, dried fruit, nuts, and peanut butter M&Ms. Whether you need a pick-me-up during the day or at night, your tour guides will always have something handy.

 

3. Meeting with local winemakers

One of the many benefits of traveling abroad is the fine wine. Each region has its own fertile soils, grape varieties and cultivation methods. Our cycling trips take you deep into the wine-producing vineyards where local producers refine their craft. You may be a fan of the big wine producers, but the small ones tend to have the most passion for their art.

Meet local winemakers and participate in a few tasting sessions. Whether you’re a professional or an amateur wine expert, knowing how to swirl, sniff, and sip wine is a valuable skill.

 

4. Cooking up your own delicacies

Join a gourmet tour, and learn to cook like the locals. They show you their tricks of the trade, so that you can bring those skills home. For example, you may take a piece of Italy back home with you as you learn new recipes during a pasta-making session.

Who wouldn’t like to know the best recipe for a real Italian pizza? Learn how to make a dough, let it rise, and covering it with the proper sauces. The opportunity to use local and seasonal ingredients during your cooking session is a luxury that’s hardly seen anywhere else.

 

A gourmet trip gives you an experience that’s impossible to achieve on a self-guided tour. From delicious food to fun cooking lessons, you’ll never forget a minute of your biking adventure.
