Ciclismo Cares

One pedal stroke at a time.

Responsible Travel

At Ciclismo Classico, we adhere to a very specific list of core values. Traveling responsibly has always been at our core, and we incorporate these values into everyday business in all of our offices. Bringing dreams to life, we have built long-standing local and global relationships with many organizations.

Human-Powered Since 1989

Our tours have always been human-powered, getting from point A to point B on our bicycles or on foot!

We also strongly encourage our employees to ride their bikes, walk or take public transportation to commute to work.

Locally Grown, Locally Made

On each of our trips, we work with local growers, food producers, vineyards, culinary experts and local suppliers to create the best snacks and meals that never travel far from source to table. Our gear suppliers are all based in Italy, only enhancing a real Italian experience across all of our European tours.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Our entire team has been taught to be mindful of their impact on every place we visit, so we always try to leave a place without a trace. Reusable materials, recycling the recyclables, and taking away what we bring in are standard. You should see the dozens of uses we have for old bicycle tubes!

Adventure Travel Trade Association

Our company has been a member of this forward-thinking adventure industry association since its re-invention in the early 2000s.


Each summer Ciclismo Classico donates a portion of proceeds from our annual Bike Travel Film Festival to the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition, advocating for safer cycling, improved infrastructure, and increased awareness for cyclists across Massachusetts.

Pan Mass Challenge

Ciclismo has been involved in the USA’s largest cycling fundraiser for over 25 year. We’ve run virtual fundraising tours and supported the event with corporate contributions as well.

Charity Riding

Founder and Director Lauren Hefferon has participated in the Pan Mass Challenge over 28 times, personally raising over $100,000 for the Jimmy Fund’s cancer research efforts.

Ciclismo Classico employees are encouraged to get involved and have participated in the Best Buddies Challenge, MS Bike rides, Tour de Cure rides, NF Northeast fundraisers, and Climate Rides.

We’re always looking to connect and become more involved in our local and greater cycling community. Please email with any opportunities!
