Andy Hampsten, one of America’s most celebrated cyclists, has led cycling tours in Italy since 1998 following his retirement from professional cycling. Andy fell in love with Italy during his years of racing in the country and founded Cinghiale Cycling Tours to share the wonders of Italy with fellow cycling and food enthusiasts. Each Cinghiale Cycling tour is specially curated to explore the more quiet, undiscovered places throughout Italy, focusing on local culture: the food, wine, people, and cycling the most spectacular roads Europe has to offer.

  • Since our first Cinghiale cycling tour in 2008, we have been captivated by each journey. The scenery and terrain, the accommodations, the quality of the food and wine, the small group setting with excellent rider support have brought us back for trip after trip. Andy and Elaine provide a warm, welcoming, incomparable experience for riders and non-riders alike. One of these tours belongs on any cyclist’s bucket list!
