Correva l'anno 1983: anch'io vidi per la prima volta la luce del sole estivo e sorrisi. 
Da sempre col pallino per l'avventura (nessun albero poteva resistermi!) ho avuto la fortuna di girare l'Europa e l'Italia con i miei genitori e poi, per la maturità, mi sono regalata un viaggio in 2 cavalli da Milano verso la Russia.
Ho vissuto 6 anni in Trentino godendo della bellezza della Natura, delle montagne e, devo ammetterlo, della MTB! Al momento ritenuto giusto, ho mollato il lavoro senza alcun rimpianto per volare in Nuova Zelanda dove ho viaggiato per cinque mesi in solitaria. Nel 2007 ho provato per la prima volta l'esperienza di un'avventura a due ruote e, da quel momento, non ne ho potuto più fare a meno... così, dopo alcune brevi esperienze in Europa, nel 2010 sono partita con Leo per un lungo viaggio in bicicletta nel Sud Est asiatico, la nostra prima vera grande avventura insieme! All'Asia sono seguite le Ande, il Marocco, il Sudafrica e Lesotho... e il #noplansjourney...
Se non siamo in viaggio, viviamo sul lago d'Iseo!
Su lifeintravel.it trovi tutti i nostri grandi viaggi insieme (e non)!
Carpediem e buone pedalate!

How many cycling documentaries and adventure do you know? Bicycle is the means that makes us dream of new horizons and seemingly impossible journeys to unknown places; far or near places, but by bicycle and with the right spirit, we will live great adventures. When time is missing or you don't have the opportunity to leave immediately, you can feed your desire for travel by watching some cycling documentaries and films dedicated to the adventures into the wild nature ...

"The bicycle is a pleasure for the body and the mind" but in the long winter days often the desire to jump on the saddle is less ... instead of pedaling under a heavy snowfall we want to suggest an alternative or better, 14 alternatives, 14 cycling books to read about bike trips, bicycle touring, adventures and more or less crazy bike riders. Take a seat in the armchair or in front of the fireplace and dive into a paper adventure (for this time!).

The Camonica Valley cycleway starts at Ponte di Legno but in this article we will speak about the lower part that connects Capo di Ponte to Pisogne following the valley floor with the exception of a couple of possible detours. Recently the local administrations finished the missing section of the path to link the  upper part of Camonica Valley to the lower until Lake Iseo and now we’ll be able to travel by bike the distance between the Tonale Pass (and even before the Sole Valley in Trentino) and the river Po, till the Adriatic Sea... in complete safety!

Liguria is a land enclosed among the mountains and the sea where pristine places are often just around the corner. Thanks to the restoration of the old railway tack in a quite touristy area in the region, the  Framura – Levanto cycle path has been set up that can be easily traveled also by families with children or people who don’t love that much climbing. This path for pedestrians and bikes is undoubtedly a very interesting itinerary to discover a glimpse of Liguria in an alternative way!

In the north-eastern part of the Alps there is a cycling itinerary that connects one of the biggest German cities to the charming city on the lagoon. The Friendship Cycle Way, Munich to Venice bike route, travels through cycle paths already existing, secondary, low-traffic roads with the dream to see the whole trail turning into one single connection cycle trail between Germany and Italy.
Pusteria Valley cycle path is one of the main roads of the cycling-tourist itineraries in South Tyrol. The trail connects San Candido to Fortezza in about 70 km of an average demanding route. Unlikely the San Candido – Lienz cycle path developing exclusively downhill (going from Italy to Austria), cycling towards Fortezza requires anyway a minimum training because overall you have to face about 700 meters of difference in altitude.
What too see in Basilicata? Land enclosed among mountains, Lunar landscapes and a clear sea, Basilicata is a region often underrated by cycling that tends to favor places that are more well-known. The movie of 2009, Basilicata Coast to Coast, aroused a touch of curiosity more about this territory in southern Italy, but out of the few touristy routes Basilicata is an unknown region even if extremely fascinating to visit by bike. It’s not easy to recommend  the 10 best places to see in Basilicata by bicycle, but I hope it could be a good starting point for your next trip...
The railway of the Dolomites, later become Dolomites cycle path, was opened in 1921 to connect Calalzo di Cadore, Dobbiaco and Cortina d'Ampezzo. With the passing years and the development of motorization and technologies it was gradually abandoned. It had its time of glory during the year 1956 on occasion of the Cortina Winter Olympics, but then its decline was inevitable especially when, in 1960, there was a serious accident in which two persons died. 65 kilometers long, the railway was dismantled in 1964. Today, as mentioned before, the railway has become the cycleway of the Dolomites and connects Calalzo di Cadore in the Veneto region to Dobbiaco in the Alto Adige region.
One of the less well-known Italian regions also by Italians is without a doubt Molise. Enclosed among the Apennines, the Matese Mountains and the sea is usually skimmed when travelling along the motorway, but by bike everything changes. Discovering slowly what to see in Molise, cycling from one hill to another, flanking mountains and climbing their arduous slopes, is an experience we recommend to everyone. After cycling in Molise during "Transitalia", our adventure through the Apennine by bike, we want to suggest you a few places absolutely not to be missed...
Living in Trento and having a racing bike, it happened to me many times, especially at the beginning of the season, to train along  Adige cycleway which runs along the bottom of the valley and often, in summer, it happened to me to meet many cycling tourists, first of all German: the cycling route is indeed ideal for those wanting to skip the traffic and is well linked to other routes that combined can make a trip by bike rather varied and interesting. The cycle route of Adige river is the longest cycle path in the whole province of Trento and continues in the nearby provinces of Verona and Bolzano, being a perfect cycling route for those who love the tranquility of pedaling with no effort and with good cultural-touristic alternatives along the way.
