The 2019 E.F.R.U. Sicily cycling tour

August 9, 2018 in General

 

We are currently planning our next cycling tour in Sicily. This will be held in April, on the 5th and the 6th. At that time of year, the weather should be cool, which will surely be welcomed by those participating.

Also, we are aware that this year (2018), the price was a factor in getting less participants, such that we had to postpone the tour. This was also due to the fact that the new route starting from Catania necessitated flights by Air Malta which due to the late booking were very expensive.

With your collaboration, we plan to book our logistics for the next tour early on such that we envisage to keep the participation donation for the whole tour on the lines of previous years, not exceeding EUR 375. Furthermore, due to your concerns, we are also tackling logistics for the bikes to be transferred to Sicily by truck instead of by air.

To guarantee the aforementioned price, we are opening registrations now and accepting a deposit of EUR 150 until the end of September 2018 in order to pre-book travel and accommodation. After this date, we will not be able to guarantee the stated price

Another edition of the EFRU Sicily Cycling Tour is fast approaching, this year changing the starting point to Catania. This permits us to explore a new cycling route, circling around Etna, past the vineyards gracing its northern slopes and reaching as far inland as Regalbuto (Enna region) with its picturesque lake and surrounding terrain, before heading back to Catania. An overnight stay in a comfortable agriturismo will permit the cyclists to recharge before tackling the second day of cycling. There will be support vehicles taking care of logistics, refreshments and seeing to the safety of the cyclists.
