Umbria is ideal cycling territory, with mountain bike trails in abundance! Certainly, it is an extremely popular sport across Italy, with men donning the lyrca most weekends!
However, for the holidaymaker, cycle hire can be difficult to find so if you are keen to enjoy a lot of cycling during your trip, you may be best to bring your own bike. It’s not impossible to find cycle hire though.
The local tourist office will always be able to help recommend routes and itineries for you and will be able to advise you on the nearest bike rental business.
One option you may want to consider though is to rent a bike from Cicli Valentini (Via Firenze 68b, Castliglione del Lago). www.ciclivalentini.it. Open Monday to Saturday, you can hire a bike here and then cycle the 24km path around the lake from Castiglione del Lago to Torricella.
