Bike Riders, All-Clad & Celebrity Chefs

Bike Riders, the luxury travel company located in Boston's historic North End partners with award-winning chefs and All-Clad, the leading culinary cookware for a week of biking and great cooking. James Beard award-winning chef/owner Jody Adams of Rialto Restaurant in Cambridge, MA, national acclaimed chef Rick Moonen of rm seafood in Las Vegas, NV and celebrity chef James Boyce, of Cotton Row Restaurant in Huntsville, AL and formerly Studio in Laguna Beach, CA, are among the popular list of chefs to return to the countryside of Italy, France & Spain to pedal & cook with Bike Riders this fall.

After a successful FLIP promotion, Bike Riders announced plans to give away an All-Clad Stainless Steel French Skillet for Guest Chef trips booked by April 30. "All-Clad is the cookware preference for most professional chefs," said Director, Lorenzo De Monaco. "Plus we thought it would be a fun theme to help clients prep for their next bike trip and maybe they'll even show our chefs a thing or two." You can visit for more details.

About Bike Riders
Since 1991 Boston-based Bike Riders has been offering small, luxury biking trips to the Americas, Europe & Beyond. A Bike Riders trip features off-the-beaten path itineraries, world-class inns and celebrated restaurants, many of which are Bike Riders' exclusives. Privately owned and operated by Lorenzo De Monaco and Eileen Holland, a husband-and-wife team who share a passion for travel and good food, as well as roots in many of regions they visit. Bike Riders keeps travel parties small (max 16) and saturates travelers in the locale. Being small allows Bike Riders to gain access to places larger travel companies cannot and avoids the generic tour feeling. Bike Riders has been recommended by such publications as Travel & Leisure, Food & Wine, Vogue, USA Today, The New York Times, New York Magazine, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The San Francisco Chronicle, Fodor's, Departures and Italia Magazine. Bike Riders also offers self-guided and private tours. More informatio n can be found at
