Visit Rovereto


Cicloviaggiatore lento con il pallino per la scrittura e la fotografia. Se non è in viaggio ama perdersi lungo i mille sentieri che solcano le splendide montagne del suo Trentino e dei dintorni del lago d'Iseo dove abita, sia a piedi che in mountain bike. Eterno Peter Pan che ama realizzare i propri sogni senza lasciarli per troppo tempo nel cassetto, ha dedicato gran parte della vita al cicloturismo viaggiando in Nuova Zelanda, Balcani, Norvegia e molti altri paesi. Ultimamente ha trascorso dieci mesi in bici nel Sud est asiatico e ha attraversato le Ande in bici.

"Holland - Australia by bicycle?!?" were my only words when we met Rudd and Michele on the side of Lake Bicaz, in Romania, almost five months ago. They were cycling in the opposite direction, on their way to Australia. Rudd, from Holland, and Michele originally from OZ spent their life together in the land of tulips. Now they are retirees and have decided to make their dream come true...

More than ten years have passed since I crossed the great parks of the United States on the road and after a chat with a friend leaving for a bike trip to America, I felt a great desire to explore the boundless spaces of the USA by bicycle. Unfortunately for the moment a trip like this is still unachievable, but the web came to help me. A virtual journey, certainly not like a real one, but enough to make me dream a few minutes. Hence the idea of ​​sharing what I believe are the 5 most beautiful long-distance bicycle routes in the United States, to make you dream a little too and to give the luckiest and bravest some ideas for a future adventure.

What are the best gravel bikes of 2020? If you are reading this article it is because, most likely, you are deciding to face the big step and buy a gravel bicycle . I will not dwell on what a gravel bike is or why you made this decision because these elements, although worthy of being treated, are not of interest to those like you who have to decide which gravel bike to buy.

Just know that in recent years more and more people have decided to marry this "philosophy" and try an intermediate vehicle between a racing bike and a mountain bike, for traveling or for day trips on the white roads near home. So I decided to do a short (and certainly not exhaustive) research, trying to understand which are the most popular gravel bikes and those that are used with more satisfaction by lovers of dirt roads. Then I recommend the best ten gravel bike models of 2020 .

One of the most used accessories for bike trips, after side bags, are handlebar bags that assure the comfort of having items of quick and frequently use at your fingertips. But which are the parameters to consider when choosing a handlebar bag for cycling tourism? Let’s see what we have to pay attention to when buying and how to choose the right one
The Alpe Adria cycle path is an itinerary between Austria and Italy and it connects Salzburg, in the Alps, to Grado on Adriatic sea.We had the occasion of traveling many kilometers along the Alpe Adria cycleway during our trip by bike among Trentino, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia and we discovered many beautiful villages, ancient cities, old railways and wild nature. The Alpe Adria cycle route is perfect for those wanting to get to know these territories, from art cities to the medieval villages, from the mountains to the sea, in a slow way, with no stress.
Modifying a GPS track can be useful for many reasons: merging routes found on the web to define an itinerary you want to travel, creating and viewing an altimetry of a specific route, reversing the direction of travel, splitting a trip by bike in more multiple stages, creating points of interest or even creating a track from scratch... well, the management possibilities of GPS files (whether GPX, KML or any other useful format) is, nowadays, wide and varied. Often though during my researches on the web I find it hard to find a complete overview of free programs to modify the GPS tracks therefore hereafter I grouped some programs that I recommend based on my experience. 
Easy ... because we travelled our whole life and because our life is fueled by travel (by bicycle)! We have seen enough places that we do not have time to write about them all (and this is a big problem), but we try to tell you as much as possible, without pretending to be exhaustive or objective: we write what we see and what we do, looking to be sometimes subjective and emotional, sometimes more descriptive and informative. We write because we like to share information and emotions, because it's nice to find people who have the same passions.
What kind of travellers are we?
We are low-cost bicycle travellers, on this, there is no doubt! The less we spend, the more we travel... the more we travel, the more we write and share... the more we share, the more we are happy... it is an equation that finds its closure in your sharing: you tell us about your experiences, you tell us how do to travel by bike spending little and we? The less we spend, the more we travel... in short, you understand how it works, no? So what are you waiting for, share your experiences with us.
In addition to being low-cost travellers, we love cycling tourism and we have been practising it for decades. The perfect trip for us is the one that leads us to travel by bike to discover less known, remote and possibly less frequented places. Mind you, the weekend in the beautiful Italian or European cities does not disgust us! But if we have to get on a flight to stay away from home more than a week, well: do not come to look for us in a tourist village! Nature, adventure, wilderness... our passion feeds on this and we try to tell you as much as possible about this! Cycling is a great passion for us and cycling trips play a fundamental role in our "curriculum" of travellers: New Zealand, Patagonia, South East Asia, Andes, Atlas and Drakensberg, the Balkans, Italy, Corsica... the big dream is now called World by bike!
Where Life in Travel was born?
Explaining why and where Life in Travel was born is easy: in the far 2007 I left for a year of Working Holiday in Australia and this site wanted to be a travel diary open to the world, mainly to friends and relatives, so that they could follow me in my adventures Down Under. Since then, between highs and lows, I started throwing my biggest passions in the heap: mountain biking, mountains, photography and, above all, trips... today we have thousands of articles, thousands of visitors every day and a great desire to continue to travel and write! Life in Travel, after years and years of publications, has become the bicycle touring blog reference in Italy thanks to the support of all... now we'll try to open our world to English speaking people even if we know that our English is not perfect, but we hope you'll appreciate the content more than the appearance!

 Why on Life in Travel do you find ads?
You will surely have noticed that there are ads banner on Life in Travel. We write and take care of the site at our best but this has a cost both in terms of time and in economic terms. In order to repay the operating expenses and keep travelling, we decided to include advertising and accept proposals for collaboration with companies and agencies that want to exploit the window of Life in Travel to advertise. We have and will always try to integrate advertising in a way that does not make it annoying for navigation and clear to all users. If you also want to insert advertising on lifeintravel you can contact us through the appropriate form or at info (at)
