A proposal to re-discover winter

Winter has begun and the intention to stop pedaling is not there. As the readers of cuboviaggiatore know, the mountain in winter is not necessarily to be associated with skiing,  it can be an opportunity to rediscover new routes, not necessarily aimed at cycling performance, but to enjoy the landscape and listen  the silences that only the mountain in winter can give.

A gost bike path along the Tanaro river

I had never had the occasion to write a negative article, especially about a bike ride in a beautiful place like "The Langhe" area, an heritage of humanity.

Autumn on the Tour de France roads - 3rd Stage: Col de l'Izoard and Col du Montgenevre

We thought and discussed last night largely whether to end the tour either with the Agnello Pass or with the Montgenèvre Pass, we were very perplexed about the Agnello Pass, the awakening made us all clearer. A bit 'of rain, but especially the night white stomach problems have made the decision easier.

Autumn on the Tour de France roads - 2nd Stage: Col du Telegraphe and Col du Galibier

Early this morning, breakfast is waiting for us at 7.30am. The hotel manager has given us the chance to have breakfast at 7.30 am, unusual here, generally breakfast is available in the hotels from 8 am this however for travel with bicycle is a problem, it means that you can not be ready before the 9.00 am to start.

Autumn on the Tour de France roads - 1st Stage: Col du Mont Cenis

To pedal and train seriously there is always a need for a goal, and then here I am, I have created one, a beautiful journey between the colors of Autumn in the mountains in the company of friend of mine Lorenzo. It was a while that I did not ride a multi-day trip, the last one year ago to Cornaley with Lorenzo.

Nico’s New Bicycle Riding Experience on an e-Bike

By Nico de Corato
Translated by Daniel D. Brecht 

An incredible series of coincidences has led me, Nico de Corato, for years living in Dubai to celebrate Eid al-Adha, an Islamic "Sacrifice Feast" festival, with two fellow countrymen also residents in the emirate looking for a bit of fun this day: on a bicycle. What offers a unique, indescribable thrill made my fantastic mountain training worthwhile and doing it in the best of ways for the true two-wheel fanatics we are. It was one of the most exclusive bike adventures.
