A new website looks to ensure a seamless booking experience for US clients, and the launch also sees the development of a dedicated USA office based at the Boston, MA home of Marathon Tours & Travel, from which customers can enjoy local and informed customer support.

The launch offers customers in the USA access to the largest collection of European cycling events, including Gran Fondo Giro D'Italia and Haute Route Alps, with bespoke packages available for the most immersive travel experiences. The Sportive Breaks team is also the official fan travel and spectator experiences partner of the UCI Cycling World Championships in Glasgow and around Scotland.
