What is Cycle Tourism:

Cycle tourism represents a unique way of traveling on your bicycle, equipped with special bags that contain everything strictly necessary for your trip. It is an economical way of traveling (after purchasing all the necessary equipment) and allows for maximum contact with nature. It's perfect for those looking for a holiday or a mini escape from the city, away from the usual standards.

The practice of cycle tourism involves the use of bike paths and cycle lanes, but also includes country roads, natural paths, and, when necessary, main roads.

Cycle tourism can be practiced individually or in groups through organized trips where cycling enthusiasts with a common destination come together to tackle the journey together.

How to Practice Cycle Tourism:

Those who practice cycle tourism do so out of love for the environment and passion for two wheels. All you need is a bicycle, a backpack, and a roof rack to equip yourself for the trip. The love of adventure is a common characteristic for those who practice this discipline. Additionally, each stage is carefully planned to avoid makeshift camps or potentially dangerous situations.

The choice of bicycle is very flexible; cycle tourists may use mountain bikes, gravel bikes, or even pedal-assisted bikes. In recent years, numerous bike hotels have opened throughout Italy. These specialized hotels have workshops where cycle tourists can check and fix their bicycles during rest periods, ensuring they are ready for the next stage.

Which Glasses to Use for Cycle Tourism:

The choice of cycling glasses is as important as the equipment for your trip. Consider that the stages, especially for multi-day trips, will take up the whole day. Exposure to sunlight, particularly intense during the hottest parts of the day, will be continuous. Choosing a lens that best protects your eyes from light and UV radiation is key. It is also essential to choose a comfortable frame to wear the cycling glasses for many hours.

Which Lens to Choose:

There are various types of lenses that you can choose from based on your route:

Mirrored lenses

Photochromic lenses

MIRROR LENSES: Mirrored lenses are the most popular choice, especially for those who practice cycle tourism in large open spaces with consistent lighting and for extended durations. The mirrored coating on an internal smoke category 3 base provides optimal protection for the cyclist's eyes even in intense light conditions and during prolonged use. Additionally, the lens is shatterproof for maximum safety in case of accidental impacts.
