A cycling trip with DuVine isn’t about camping and eating burritos. DuVine offers exquisite guided adventures through some of the world’s most scenic and hard-to-find places with thoughtful amenities. At the end of each day there is a massage and drinks and dinner in what company founder Andy Levine calls "beautiful rooms, good locations, and good service, whether they're a five-star hotel or a nice villa."
DuVine’s itineraries are the stuff of traveler dreams. Summiting the Tramuntana mountain range on the island of Mallorca (the ‘Mecca of cycling’ Levine says) before supping on langoustines and the local wine. Pedaling the perimeter of Oregon's Crater Lake. Crossing Switzerland from Interlaken down to Lake Como. Riding past spring cherry blossoms in Japan after a morning meditation with Buddhist monks. Traversing Italy from ‘sea to sea,’ beginning on the Adriatic coast and ending at the Mediterranean. Like that.
No matter your ability level, there’s a trip to fit: DuVine adventures are ranked by difficulty from 1 to 4. Their stable of equipment includes carbon Cannondale Synapses and Sirrus hybrids, and they’ve also introduced e-bikes for an easier ride.
"Our concept since we started was: bike, eat, drink, sleep,” Levine tells AIROWS. He is mindful that many of his well-heeled customers have their own private chefs and their own planes, so he offers an experience that will satisfy their expectations. The local guides he hires need to have more than expert cycling ability; he looks for those who will be interesting additions to the dinner table as well: someone with a background in Renaissance history, for example, or one who was raised in a family of truffle hunters in France with stories to share.
