The first cycle touring business network in the Venice Garden
Cycling in the Venice Garden was set up in 2017 by a group of visionary Treviso area entrepreneurs who decided to launch a project together to improve cycle tourism standards focussing specifically on national and international cycle tourists.
The complex activity behind setting up and establishing the Cycling in the Venice Garden brand, to publicise and promote the cycle tourism destination including custom holiday packages, and raise the standard of hospitality for cycle tourists was made possible with financing from POR FESR – 2014-2020 Veneto Rural Development programme.
To guarantee an all-round positive tourist experience, the network companies sought to maintain the highest quality standards and offer services tailored specifically to every cycle tourist need.
Cycling in the Venice Garden business network custom services include: bike hotels, e-bike hire, transfers with bike trailers, expert local guides, promotion and sale of tourist packages and many other tourist services.
Activities and management
One of the Network’s aims is to promote the authentic, eclectic Venice Garden slow tourism. They achieve this by promoting sustainable, non-seasonal tourism, whose authenticity can be enjoyed whenever, and promoting the area’s culture, natural environment, and food and drink.
For Cycling in the Venice Garden, cycle tourism is about bringing together and developing multiple visions and goals in harmony, guided by the Treviso Consortium of Tourist Promotion, whose 20 years of experience makes it essential in guiding, supporting and promoting the project and the whole area it covers.
The network is dedicated to development of cycle tourism and was set up to launch and promote a product club aimed at cycle tourists, offering itineraries and excursions paired with special promotion of tourism within the territory. The area’s cultural, artistic and food and wine assets allows organisation of a broad-reaching, varied offer. The morphological features and important natural heritage make the Veneto Region the perfect destination for outdoor tourism, being specifically suitable for cycle tourism.
In view of the continuing expansion of cycle tourism, the Cycling in the Venice Garden business network intends to develop new tourist products and services that require a well-structured proposal with assured, easily accessible services.
