8 November 2012

Boston, MA – For the third consecutive year, the Boston Business Journal and the Commonwealth Institute have named Ciclismo Classico as one of Boston’s top 100 woman-Led businesses. Ciclismo Classico was founded by Lauren Hefferon in 1988 with a dream to combine a passion for her bicycling, her Italian roots, visual arts, and outdoor education. It has blossomed to one of the most respected companies in the adventure travel industry, regularly garnering awards from Outside magazine and National Geographic Traveler.

“This is a great honor,” said Hefferon. “To think that 25 years ago I founded this company and today it has been named one of Boston’s top woman-led companies for the third straight year is very moving.”

Hefferon drives all visionary aspects of Ciclismo Classico, from itinerary design and tour leader training to marketing and company strategy. Commuting everywhere by bicycle, Hefferon supports cycling causes, such as Rails to Trails, Bikes Belong, Pan Mass Challenge and Mass Bike.
