Bikes Plus

We have travel in our blood! It all began in 1972 with a young international couple: Rick Price (from Oregon USA) and Paola Malpezzi-Price (from Forlì Italy) who had met during Paola’s high school study abroad year. After their wedding three years prior, they returned to Italy in 1972 with the first commercial / bicycle tourists–4 groups of enthusiastic young Americans ready to pedal from Pisa to Forlì. Following further adventures in Europe, Rick and Paola opened a full company in 1985 and since then kept bringing Americans to Europe by bicycle and more. Today, their daughters Monica and Maria Elena run two active travel tour operators—one based in the US and one in Italy which acts as an incoming European tour operator—BikesPlus srl. We hope you enjoy the brands BikesPlus operates and please contact us for any active travel or custom request.

4 all ora simbolo

4 ALL'ORA

Sara Zanni and Sara Cavina, two certified environmental excursion guides have created 4 all’ora as a new approach to tourism and walking as an end in itself. At a slow pace, we will explore landscapes and cultures. You take in the experience while we take care of all the itineraries and routes down to the smallest detail, with customizable options to ensure a unique experience.

We will immerse ourselves in the essence of places, encountering cultures that are familiar and less familiar. We will get into the history of the people who bring the villages and territories to life. However, we will never forget that our promise is to offer you the highest quality for a carefree experience far from mass tourism.

4 all’ora does not just mean setting off on a journey, but choosing your own experience and living it as a protagonist among special people and places, one step after another.
