Francesco - Life in Travel

ITA - Ho 31 anni e sono piemontese, anche se da qualche anno vivo e lavoro in Lombardia. Dopo un inizio da totale inesperto in questo campo, mi sono avvicinato al mondo dei cicloviaggi e della bicicletta sempre più. Oggi posso definirmi "cicloviaggiatore", e assieme all'altra mia passione - il videomaking - non mi fermerei mai! Cyclo ergo sum, pedalo quindi sono, per cercare di capire perché andare in bici sia così bello, terapeutico, ricco... E ogni volta che provo a capirlo, non ce la faccio, e sono costretto a ripartire sui pedali!

ENG - I'm from Piedmont and I'm 31 years old, I have been living and working in Lombardy for a few years. After a start without any competence in this field, I then approached the bicycle world more and more. Today I can call myself a bicycle traveller and videomaker who would never ever stop. Cyclo ergo sum, I cycle therefore I am. I ride my bike trying to understand why it is so beautiful, rich, therapeutic. And every time I try, I do not understand it. So I must leave again...

Before this ride on the hills from Casale Monferrato and Millesimo, I didn't have a clear vision on the borders of this region. Piedmont, ok… and then? In almost a week of cycling, I got more focus. Riding this Piedmont bike tour through Langhe, Roero and Monferrato by bike we got plenty of steep ascents, glasses of wine and amazing sights so famous all over the world.

Gear ratio calculation and its development in meters (also known as roll-out), together with the gear range are often bypassed, especially by beginenrs or amateurs, when choosing the right bicycle. If you don't know what I'm talking about and you want some answers, take a look below at some information and the calculation tool.

At Decathlon Headquarters it's bicycle touring time: the French brand renovates its line by redesigning its Riverside models and getting into the bikepacking market. Today, the brand new Riverside Touring 920 came to light, very interesting from features to pricing. Let's take a look at it in detail.

Until a few months ago, Veronica was a happy owner of a Genesis bicycle.

Being one of the most active brands producing touring and adventure models, Genesis and its new 2021 bicycles will be the focus of this article.

Maybe you've noticed... or maybe not. Anyway, starting from this year, Vero and I will be cruising a Trek bicycle. We're hoping - taking the current pandemic situation into consideration - to ride our new Trek 920 the furthest possible... but for now we've tested them around the corner and we're more than satisfied! Waiting for the real test of the Trek 920, in this article I'm listing 2021 Trek bicycles, in particular their touring models.

This article contains the itinerary and some info about bikepacking L'Eroica. Our guys Mattia Munegato and Marco Benetti cycled this route from 15th to 17th August 2020. You can find more info about this itinerary on the official website of L'Eroica.

 

A classic in bicycle touring, for beginners and for more experienced tourists who want to enjoy the spectacular views of Italy, Austria and Slovenia along this itinerary.

We're talking about the Drau Cycle Path, of course, from Toblach to Maribor!

Our No Plans Journey through Europe led us here, cycling through some of the Visegrád villages. The first is Slovakia: by bicycle we came from Ukraine and the last bits of Carpathians, to cycle West and touch the Tatra Mountains and dive into Poland. A wonderful itinerary of secondary roads and unexpected cycle ways. 

The front region is definitely one of the most important areas to carry objects when cycling. This is valid also when bikepacking: you can find so many handlebar bags. Depending on the type of bicycle traveller you are, you'll need more or less space, a different hooking system, different materials... In this article I'll be analyzing all the features to be considered before purchasing a bikepacking handlebar bag, then I'll list and compare 17 of them.

This Czech Republic Bike Tour is fun and easy: road signs everywhere, cycling paths... During our European bike tour we cycled through Moravia, Vysočina and Bohemia, pedalling along rivers and sweet hills of the two main cities: this is our itinerary from Brno to Prague on the European Cycling Route Eurovelo 4
