Puglia: A great way to discover it

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Lovely stop on the side of a cliff with great views, next to a bar shaped like a giant pineapple on the ride from Gallipoli to Santa Maria. The switchbacks and the long downhill on the second day are amazing rides.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Prepare by doing some cycling if you are a bit rusty. Particularly a few hills. Take a gel saddle!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Lovely food and cafes all around the coast. Well thought out materials, road map, and the great green book from local partner Girolibero. Our green pack didn't arrive at our first hotel, so check for yours. Good idea to check you know how to fix a puncture in advance. We had a couple of breakdowns, but you are expected to fix your own punctures. And enjoy, this is a great trip.
