I had never done a bicycle trip before this one, but I have always been fascinated by those brave bikers I occasionally meet on the road, with their huge bags on both sides of the bicycle, their worn clothes and a little flag indicating their native country. For me they are the most significant image of freedom. I have always admired and respected them. So I had a dream in mind for many years, a solo bicycle tour. The itinerary choice has not been difficult: the classical Way of st. James by bicycle was everything I was looking for, and even more.

This is the first time that I interviewed a cycle traveler in english. It's an experiment but I hope it could be the first of a long series.

It is one of the most popular loop around mount Pasubio between Trentino and Veneto. One goes through Strada degli Eroi (heroes road) that was built to recover the bodies of fallen soldiers after WWI, and Strada degli Scarubbi. Between them there is the strada delle 52 gallerie (and gallerie in Italian stands for tunnels, so as you can understand it's rightly forbidden to MTB) that makes one relive the tragic conditions in which soldiers fought. Besides the history, also nature and alpine landscapes are good companions in this simple but pleasant excursion on mount Pasubio by mountain bike, fit for trekking lovers too.
