And to make your experience totally exclusive, we also provide Garmin GPS navigation systems. Their innovative technology, accurate information and maps uploaded by us will truly make the difference on the rides you undertake.
What's more, since we like to spoil or clients, we'll give every rider an energy bar and a bottle of water free of charge: thirst and low sugar levels are always just around the corner... Every package includes detailed information and special offers: partner hotels and restaurants, tastings, visits to historic sites or attractions... there really are plenty of combinations to choose from.
We've always been fascinated by the world of cycling in all its forms; why not make a profession of it? So we opened our first shop, Biciclettaio Matto, in Desenzano del Garda. Within a few years, our work and the demand for our services increased to the point where we decided to open a second shop a few kilometres away in Moniga del Garda.
So today you can find us in two sales points: here we also offer bike hire, assistance and repairs, and organise tours. And it's the constant growth of the latter which led us to further widen our horizons. Turning this branch of our business into a genuine e-commerce platform for "two-wheeled deals" is one of the reasons behind the creation of Garda Ride.
Besides selling complete packages, our clients can find useful advice on how to get around, what to see, where to hire equipment, eat and sleep, how to find and follow the cycle tracks, how to stay safe, for example bypassing dangerous stretches of road by using our mapped routes or travelling certain sections by boat.
This is an utterly fascinating experience: travelling by bike and then crossing the lake and seeing the landscape from a different angle is not something you do every day! The great thing about our tours is that they're not targeted at a specific category but can be enjoyed by groups (including those celebrating a special occasion), couples or families, for team-building, incentives or company excursions: everyone is welcome.
