Taste slowly the territory with


Hi, I’m Davide and I organize special tours throughout Parma and its surroundings combining cycling holidays and local wines and food. In this way you can discover and experience slowly the territory of Parma, the capital of the so-called “Italian Food Valley” and the UNESCO creative city of Gastronomy.

The BikeFood Stories tours start from Parma near the train station. We cycle to discover different places: the Po river and its valley where the mist together with the landscape create a special atmosphere; the hills where Prosciutto of Parma and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese see the light; the Natural Reserve with woods and countryside!

Every my bike tour in Parma includes the visit of production sites and after the effort of riding the bike, a break in a selected restaurant to taste dishes of the tradition is welcome.

Are you scary to ride a bike? No problem because I have also electric bikes. Even if you haven’t ridden a bike in years, it’s a skill that is easily picked up again. The electric motor is there for you 🙂

What is my aim? I want to offer the tourists, guests in my territory, a unique experience, emotions, memories that will connect you to the gastronomic culture and the artisans that everyday create special products.

Travelling is a way to discover and appreciate the territory and its culture in a green way. To protect the environment is the core of this project.

Can you find a better way to “taste” Parma and its territory without a bike? For sure not! … of course with Bike Food Stories!
