A visit to the Museo del Ciclismo Madonna del Ghisallo Cycling Museum by @fabulousport

A visit to the Museo del Ghisallo Cycling Museum @MuseoGhisallo http://www.museodelghisallo.it

Located in Magreglio overlooking Lake Como, by the Madonna del Ghisallo chapel contains an exposition of vintage bicycles and cycling memorabilia, many trophies and cycling photography history.

Beside the church there is the cycling museum “Museo del Ciclismo del Ghisallo”.

Very recommended a visit if you love cycling history and it’s also a great area to discover for cycletouring if you are a keen cyclist.

Just passed the church, the road descends for a few kilometres towards Erba, then with a right turn at a roundabout, you will discover the Sormano climb with also the steepest climb variation called the “Muro di Sormano” a 1800 metres climb with a 12% to 27% gradient!

If you need more information about this region don’t hesitate to write me in the comment section below this video on the Youtube channel: “Fabulous Sport Outdoor Photography”

Selle Italia Slr Superflow Bike Saddle Test @fabulousport

After experiencing a lot of pain using a bike saddle that wasn’t good for me, the Selle Italia Monolink, I’ve decided to test another model but still giving a chance to Selle Italia as a brand. This new one to test is the Selle Italia SLR Superflow and it’s shaped with a major cut-out to allow ventilation as you ride. From Selle Italia’ website: “SLR Superflow L. The optimal sitting position on the toughest saddle
The sophistication and strength of the SLR range are combined with the benefits of SuperFlow technology to maximise your riding experience with an optimal saddle position.”
I haven’t used it for too long, but I can already say that it’s a much better design and comfortable saddle to ride, particarly at the moment, been summer and at 30*C the ventilation really helps.

Stage 7 of this year 2018 #CriteriumduDauphiné from Moutiers climbed it’s way to Bourg St. Maurice and to the #CormetDeRoselend in the #Beaufort Julian Alaphilippe of Quick Step Cycling Team was the first to pass by at this point.                                                                SUBSCRIBE TO FABULOUS SPORT OUTDOORS YOUTUBE CHANNEL

(Source: Criterium du Dauphiné’s website:”131 riders have started stage 7 in Moûtiers. Warren Barguil (Fortuneo-Samsic) was the first attacker at km 6 but he didn’t stay away more than two kilometres as the peloton reacted. Team Sky denied any attacker the possibility to ride away from the peloton before the ascent to the Cormet de Roselend. Julian Alaphilippe (Quick Step) was the first to take off in the climb. After he got caught, he managed to react to a later attack by Dani Navarro (Cofidis). David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ), Edward Ravasi (UAE Team Emirates) and Antwan Tolhoek (LottoNL-Jumbo) accompanied the Spaniard before being rejoined by Alaphilippe and Pierre Rolland (EF Education First). Gaudu crested the Cormet de Roselend in first position.”) #Beaufortain beautiful valley with stunning landscape views overlooking the lake #Roseland a big water dam where the surrounding mountain peaks reflects in it.

Paola is about to cycle all the Italian Stages of the Giro d’Italia 2018, one day ahead of the official race, to spread road cycling safety awareness all around Italy. See more images here on my FLICKR. She also ride this Giro to remember Alfonsina Strada(16 March 1891 – 13 September 1959) who was an Italian cyclist, and the only woman to have ridden one of cycling’s three major stage races. She started in the Giro d’Italia in 1924 when the organisers mistook her for a man. Newspapers called her The Devil in a dress.[1]  Her racing career included an Italian record which lasted 26 years. She died aged 69 as she propped up her motorcycle after riding to a bicycle race.

I, Fabrizio Malisan @fabulouSport  will be part of her team, where we’ll follow and support Paola Gianotti in her Italian Giro 2018 adventure. Please subscribe to this blog where I’ll give you regular updates on Paola’s progress or press LIKE ON:

The philosophy of the company is to provide a great ‘value for money’ service, good quality bicycles and components at a more affordable price than the competitors.

Rose-Bikes-Xlite-Crs-3000-Road-Bike-Test-Review-Cycling-Reviews-Fabulousport-IMG_0224.JPG
The bicycles are very well packaged for delivery, in a thick padded carton box. Bike assembly is very easy, you only need to straighten the handlebars, fit the seat-post and saddle, adjust in it to your height, put the skewer in the front wheel and attach it to the front fork, add pedals ..and that’s it, you’re good to go out riding your new bike.

Cycling Tour Vlog: Rosazza Valle Cervo to Oropa Sanctuary Biella Piedmont Italy @fabulousport

The Biellese region is a fabulous land for cycling, offering several quiet roads to ride. Cycling is a great way to explore and discover these beautiful landscapes of the northern Piedmont region of Italy.
In this video I’m showing you a great climb, with quite a challenging gradient, reaching about 15%, but very rewarding and panoramic.
DCIM100GOPROGOPR1830.JPG

The climb begins once passed Biella, a lovely ride up through the Valle Cervo which is a valley that feels like time has stood still. The ride is very pleasant surrounded by very beautiful characteristic houses and picturesque villages along the river. Just before you get to the town of Rosazza, there’s a left turn on a bridge, then left again towards San Giovanni and Galleria di Rosazza, the tunnel that leads to Oropa on the other side of the mountain. However, whilst you are there, I recommend you cycle all the way to the end of the Cervo Valley, to visit Rosazza and Piedicavallo, both really interesting little villages.

It’s always more exciting to cycle up a hill from one side and descend the other side, as it really feels like travelling further.

The Sanctuary of Oropa has hosted a few Giro d’Italia stage finishes. It’s a great road to climb from the town of Biella, winding it’s way up to the Sanctuary.

CYCLING in NO MATTER WHAT – @fabulousport

Cycling no matter what.. regardless of the weather, the rain and the cold.
The “problem” of cycling is that it’s quite addictive.. the more you do it, the more you feel like doing it.. so even if you are a fair weather rider like myself, eventually the need to go out on your bike becomes stronger than the lazy part of yourself, trying to find any excuse to stay in and relax on the couch, in front of the TV.
I make these type of videos with the aim to encourage people to get out more, to go outdoors and enjoy outdoor activities. If you are a fan of football, rugby or a favourite tv program, you can always record it and watch it when you come back after your outdoor activity. I know it may not be the same as watching it live, but as long as you don’t hear about the score of the match..it’ll still be exciting to watch, or find the time to get outdoors before or after!!
My wife Emma, here in the video, never cycled before we met, so if anyone’s interested in this topic, I’ll produce a video explaining how I got her to this level of cycling, so that we can enjoy doing outdoor activities together as a couple. Some people maybe prefer keeping their own hobbies or sports for themselves, or maybe they’ve tried to teach their partners without success, so I’ll explain ang give a few tips in how to get your partner into cycling, learning from the beginning, first easy rides, up to a good level of skills and fitness that enables enjoying great days out on a bicycle.
