A'qto Cycling

Italian Cycling Tours that immerse you in the magic of Tuscany, Piemonte, Puglia, Dolomites, Alps, Giro d’Italia and L’Eroica

a'qto (pronounced 'a-cue-tow') means intense or acute in Italian.

Inspired by European road racing, a'qto reflects the intensity and passion that is European cycling.

Always aiming to stay at the forefront of design, we bring together art, fashion and the sport of cycling to a range of stylish, easy wearing clothing and accessories that are accessible to cyclists across the globe.


Over the past decade, A’qto has evolved beyond the brand’s initial focus on designing and producing quality Italian cycling and leisure apparel, into a boutique tour operator run by founders Damian Hancock and Nancy De Losa.

Beginning with local Australian cycling tours, since 2015 A’qto’s offering has grown to include an extensive selection of high-quality Italian cycling tours and holidays. The immersive tours deliver truly authentic local experiences, with A’qto’s hosts facilitating both guided and self-guided cycling tours, traditional Italian hospitality, and an array of off-the-bike activities for cyclists and non-cycling partners alike.

With tour group sizes limited to 12 guests, comprehensive ride support and an inclusive non-riding partner program available, A’qto’s tours guarantee a smooth and enriching experience of Italy behind the tourist curtain, both on and off the bike.
