“Winning this award is a great honor,” said the 48-year-old Bonini. “What I enjoy most about Ciclismo trips is the opportunity for me to share the most beautiful stretches of my own country with foreigners who always turn out to be very interesting people themselves.”

Additionally, Outside named Ciclismo Classico’s “Bike Across Belgium” tour the Best Foodie Destination of 2014. The new for 2014 Belgium bike tour offers some of the most scenic cycling in Europe. Guests ride miles of bicycle paths that zig-zag along romantic canals and wind through quaint towns, charming castles, outdoor cafés and incredible restaurants. This combination of bicycle infrastructure, gorgeous scenery, delicious food and varied culture make this an extraordinary European cycling tour.

“Our new Bike Across Belgium tour gives guests access to more boutique breweries than any other European bicycle tour,” said Ciclismo Classico founder Lauren Hefferon. “For travelers who love to bike and drink beer, this is a dream trip.”

This year, Outside tapped its global network of correspondents who traveled across America, to Belize, Switzerland, Italy, and beyond identifying the best new adventures, most stunning lakes, gorgeous new lodges and hotels, family vacations, secret getaways, high-tech airports, and foodie hot spots. The result is more than 50 spectacular trips, plus the best travel apps, tour guides, gear, tips for traveling green, and advice for traveling solo.
