Visit Valentino Rossi hometown with Hear The Road

I went with Enrico on his Misano MotoGP and Italian Ride. I can say I had a fantastic time. Enrico has taken a lot of time and not only gotten the big things right, he has taken care of some of the small details as well. I don’t want to give away any details, so you can experience it as I did. Enrico took the time to find great roads to ride on, beautiful places to see and great places to stay. Enrico seems to know the history and what is special about every place you go, he has details to add during your sightseeing to really bring the places alive. But you will not only get to ride some great roads and see some fantastic places, you will get to experience some of Italy especially at the evening meals. I am already planning to book another tour with Enrico, I just need to decide where I want to go next time. The only piece of advice I would give is unless you are a very experienced rider pick a smaller bike than you think because the roads are very tight and twisty which makes them fun, but again unless you are very experienced might be a bit much on a larger bike.

The roads were hands down the best I’ve experienced whilst the “après riding” (sightseeing, wining & dining, personal connections) equally contributed to make the trip highly memorable. Enrico and team were very professional and great fun. I would highly recommend the experience and will definitely be returning myself.

It was a pleasure to ride on your tour again too. Never got to say goodbye and properly thank you. It was the best tour yet! We are still beaming with how well everything turned out. Grazie Mille, Tori Miller

Hear the Road & Leod Escapes combine to make the perfect Motorcycle trip into the heart of Italy’s riding roads. This is a partnership of two different companies: one specializes on the backroad tours of Italy; the other focuses on Rides & Track Time. The combination provides the exhilaration of a brisk pace on a scenic serpentine roads, with the views and vistas of the Italian hilltowns, mountains & vineyards. Frequently, the group would split up into Cat’s “fast group”; and Enrico’s touring group. Go with either. We would ride for 20 or 30 minutes and meet up maybe 5 minutes apart. Each group was led, all noses counted, everybody safe & sound, off we’d go again. You could choose which group to be in – each had its advantages. The days were broken into 1 to 1 1/2 hour segments, with a break for local culture – espresso, gelato, panini.... There is no way in the world you could take this tour on your own & cost‐wise it’s a deal. The local knowledge of the region that Enrico shared with all of us, included intricate non‐descript turns that lead us to some of the most scenic
parts of Italy. On
occasion a local 
sportbike rider in full
leathers would blow
through the group & we
would see him at the
next hilltop café in the parking lot with 40 other riders, local & otherwise.
For me this was an education of the Italian Lifestyle, and
an opportunity to hone my riding skills on a bike of my
choice. On challenging roads, I could follow Cat’s line &
comfortably & safely ride faster than I am accustomed
to riding. Lunches & Evenings, we had no language
barrier. Enrico led us to locally‐known restaurants, Agriturismos, and friend’s cabins for local cuisine. Not a tourist in sight. With his repeat business, we were welcomed as friends into each restaurant. Molto bene.
I’ve rented motorcycles abroad before. This time I got the bike I was promised. This time I got the room I was promised. This time I got way more ride than I could imagine.
Arise, ride, eat, ride, arrive (bags already in the room), party, sleep. Repeat.
The planning was perfect; the follow through was flawless, I’ll remember this riding forever.
If this trip isn’t on your bucket list, get a better bucket.
Vroom vroom.

I don’t think I’ve kept quiet about the trip since I arrived home and have been showing all the photos round from what I took myself and also what the other guys posted up on the WhatsApp group. Firstly, and most importantly for myself were the riding an Italian bike in Italy (which has been on my bucket list for some years now ✔️) and the superb scenery and routes which we were taken on as it would be doubtful we would have found most of these routes ourselves. Also the places we were taken to eat and all the hotels were of a high standard and mostly in idyllic locations. I also very much appreciated the pre work that must go into organising a tour like that from yourself, Cat and Enrico. Everything seemed to have been thought out and taken care of to make sure we had hardly anything to be concerned about and could just enjoy the whole experience. If you are of a like minded disposition of the guys who run and participate in this experience then there is no reason not to do this trip. Yes, it is expensive but you could nowhere near get the same pleasure and life experience by sitting at home and checking out your bank account. Meeting different people from all over the world and seeing how they tick and with a common denominator being the love of motorcycles, travel and Moto GP, what’s not to like ! Cat and Enrico endeavour to give you a fantastic experience and are genuinely into what they do, and they do it very well indeed. I originally saw a tour on similar lines a couple of years ago in “Motorcycle Classics” an American magazine we can sometimes get hold of in the UK and showed the article to my wife who suggested I go and show it to my mate Dave as he might be interested. Anyway, he was and we started a search for other companies that were doing similar things. The requisite for us was that it had to be Italy and we had to ride Italian bikes and if we could take in a Moto GP round it would be an added bonus. Hey presto ! Everything we were looking for was in this tour so we made a decision to book it as it also gave us the correct “gut feeling” that this was the one. There wasn’t just one highlight, it was a continuation of highlights the whole trip from start to finish, seeing new places, riding a Ducati and getting to experience an Italian Moto GP round.Who can complain about getting a wedding thrown in and congratulations again to Anna and Tori with their lovely ceremony at the villa near Siena. I certainly would not hesitate to be a part of another tour.

It’s now a week since we arrived back home from the trip to Italy, and iv’e had time to reflect on what was a unique and fantastic trip, which not only met, but exceeded my expectations. I had only ridden outside the UK once before, and that was around 18 years ago in the southwest of the USA on an independent trip with a friend, so I didn’t really have anything to compare the Italy trip with. For me, what made this trip unique was the eclectic mix of people coming from different countries, Italy, India the USA ,with myself and my pal Ian from the UK, and sharing a common love of riding motorcycles. What made it fantastic was the country, Italy is a beautiful country and the route’s ridden were spectacular ‘just like being back in North Yorkshire”. Also the organisation was really slick all the way from pick up at the airport to leaving at the end of the tour. The hotels were great and just the kind of place I would choose if I was travelling with my wife, so that is a compliment! I suppose the main focus of the trip was the Ducati factory visit and the Moto GP at Misano,” wow" what an experience’. The bikes also deserve a mention too, all were recent models, in very good condition, and I think for me the choice of the Ducati 950 Multistrada was spot on, easy to ride, ample power and comfortable riding position for the distances covered. Both Enrico and Cat guided and entertained us throughout the trip with knowledge and humour, much appreciated and many many thanks to both of them. I have and will continue to tell my family and friends how great the trip was, and would suggest to anyone who has ever thrown a leg over a motorcycle to get on one of these tours “Now" and enjoy the ride in what is in my opinion the natural home of motorcycling, and of course, North Yorkshire being a close second! And the cost, well if you love life and motorcycle it’s the best value for money I can think of. Also, don't let your age put you off, I am 68, the oldest on the trip and the riding pace was just right, it was great to feel 21 again! Finally, thank you Nancy for all the work you did leading up to the trip, it was a real pleasure. A very satisfied customer. Dave Wood
