Performance road cycling ranks as the #1 choice among people pursuing an active lifestyle and seeking new travel experiences. In other words, cycling is the new golf. At the forefront of this movement is the just launched Over The Top Travel, offering world-class performance cycling experiences for people who love to ride.
What sets Over The Top apart is its focus on the cycling experience. As owner Greg Pruner, a passionate cyclist who’s ridden France’s famous Mt. Ventoux three times in one day, says, “We are the answer for avid riders looking for a cycling experience that combines fulfilling rides with the best of world-class destinations. We don’t do three-hour lunches or afternoon museum tours. We ride.” Many of Over The Top’s guides are certified coaches there to help and support cyclists with techniques to improve their riding, if they so desire.
In addition to being an experienced cyclist, Pruner is also a certified sommelier. He spent many years living in Europe sampling the best cuisine on offer, which accounts for Over The Top’s other main ingredients: “Apres Vélos” featuring Michelin-star dining and expertly selected wines.
Upcoming 2012 riding destinations include many of the classics such as the Pyrenees, the French Alps, Tour de France and a destination at the of top of every serious cyclist’s list: Mallorca. On the beautiful Mediterranean island of Mallorca, Over The Top will feature its Spoke Club series which caters to avid cyclists and their non-riding partners. It is part spring riding camp, part retreat and part culinary and cultural adventure.
Over The Top is also offering a unique Women’s Road Cycling Retreat from February 26 to March 2, 2012. Set in the gorgeous Miraval Resort in Arizona, this one-of-a-kind retreat is ideal for women cyclists looking to improve their riding skills and confidence in an open and relaxing environment.
Over The Top — the premier provider of world-class performance cycling experiences for people who love to ride — combines the best of each destination’s cuisine, culture and breath-taking landscapes, with performance cycling adventures.
