Giro D’Italia Cycling Camp 2020 Memories

      It has been a crazy year for us. When we started planning the Giro Camp for spring possibly the Covid was already “cycling” around the world but we could never ever expect our life would change in such a crazy way. The Giro Camp was planned for May. We already had several friends who had decided to register for the Camp but then for different reasons (quarantine, fear of the virus and so on) the group became smaller. Some friends will come in 2021. We have offered them to refund their deposit but some said… “No way! […]

3 girls, 3 friends, 3 mothers, 3 sports, 3 islands

Sicily is a tough place. When travelers from around the world visit our Island they will not find the beautiful long beaches of California, the perfectly organized services of the Keys in Florida, the postcard-like locations of The Caribbean. No, Sicily is different! When you are riding around the island you will see something beautiful and, sometimes, something that will piss you off! Roads can be perfect and roads can be shitty! You can climb surrounded by green forests or in a lunar-like landscape. Weather can be fresh and nice in the morning and crazy hot at noon. People can […]

Top 5 Reasons to go on a Training Camp

1. MORE TIME TO TRAIN The first reason is quite obvious. You will ride your bike for many hours every day. You will do much more climbing than you do at home. Here in Sicily is never flat! You always go up and down so at the end of the day, when you will upload your data to strava, you will be impressed about that! 2. MORE TIME TO REST After the ride, during a normal day at home, you have to go to work or you have to go to do shopping or you have to take care of […]

Relationship with a cyclist: Shaved legs and implied fashion rules.

Relationship with a cyclist –  freely translated from an article originally written by Signe Soerensen.   My boyfriend enters the cottage’s terrace wearing tight black lycra from top to bottom. He is in a smart jersey from the popular Italian brand Castelli. With a cyclist ass packed under a chamois, he can almost compete with Kim Kardashian. His thighs look sharp and defined nicely raised above his knees. The calfs are shaved. His feet are squeezed down in a pair of tight, white, shiny shoes, which are expensive and uncomfortable to walk in. Awkwardly he walks across the wooden terrace […]

Cycling in Style: dos and don’ts

Yes, we have to admit! We think that style is more important than Watts! If it was not so then we were PRO riders and they simply don’t care if they are wearing a jersey full of logos, if they have to wear yellow fluo together with orange and dark green! In general there are simple rules that we like to follow when we go out cycling. Forgot the helmet at home? Just don’t ride the bike! Bib shorts must be black. Total black! We can tollerate navy blue. Never ever wear long pants with short sleeves jersey! Actually we […]
