About Me

My name is Dario Carzan (Like Tarzan but with a ‘C’).

I majored in Psychology, graduating in 1998. At the very moment I shook my supervisor’s hand, I knew that I did not want to become a practicing Psychologist….Ever. My mother is still wondering why! Eventually, she accepted my choice and has even begun to understand my reasoning.

I’ve been a member of this team ever since 1999, the beginning of Siciclando Bike Tours.

Cycling or walking with groups of visitors, cooking together, introducing them to my home region and sharing my culture and passions are invaluable experiences for me. This work is meaningful, and deeply satisfying. When touring with a group, I find my center and feel fulfilled.

I cannot claim life-long experience, but I will tell you there is no one more qualified or excited to introduce you the real Italia.

I’ve met people from many far away places; such as Canada, Holland, the United States, England and Israel. It is a blessing to share the joys of the scintillating places, sincere people and savory dishes found in my home country.

If you don’t believe me, come and see for yourself.

As native Italians, we welcome you to our home as we would with family! Our greatest wish is to ensure that your stay is comfortable, enjoyable, unique and memorable. We are passionate about our country, and we want you to feel the same.

What bike do you ride when not on tour

Each day is different; Slyway Recumbent, Pinarello Dogma 2 Road Bike, Co-Motion Tandem or an E-Bike with my daughters!
