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:

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.

The foothills of the Alps form the backdrop to Follina, a delightful little town nestling among the Prosecco hills, only 50 minutes from Venice  in the heart of the Treviso area.In the old centre, a stone’s throw from the medieval abbey, stands the Hotel dei Chiostri an unexpected and unusual example of contemporary design that can hold its own with the famous “design hotels” in London and Amsterdam. For those who love the latest style, this hotel is a feast for the eyes – architectural effects, unusual combinations of antique and modern, innovative lighting and contrasting shapes and colours. The perfect place to relax among art, history and wine and food culture. A few steps from Abbazia di Santa Maria XII° siècle , it combines all the intensity and charm of the ambience with the virtues of a dynamic meeting point forVenetian  and international culture. Class, warmth, splendid solidity, a style based on the fine taste and quality of objects and materials, in keeping with the spirit of the city.
Enjoy being welcomed by the reassuring harmony of this place.
Follina in Valdobbiadene is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Treviso in the Italian region Veneto, located about 60 kilometres (37 miles) northwest of Venice and about 35 km (22 mi) northwest of Treviso.

A Taste of Marche Region  #DestinazioneMarche

Mission accomplished for the brave cyclists who participated in the Bike Long Ride Marche – London.    A long ride of 2,100 km, from the beautiful Marche region of Italy all the way to London , passing through the heart of Europe.   From Piazza del Popolo in Ascoli Piceno to the UK , waving Milan goodbye and crossing over the Alps to overcome the Simplon Pass … and then, towards the great “Avenue Verte” connecting the centre of Paris to the City of London.

The cyclists of Marche Bike Life are ambassadors of the Marche region, promoting it’s beautiful landscapes, the delicious local food and everything that their beautiful region has to offer to the tourists.  Mauro Fumagalli of Marche Bike Life, creator of the event, aims to promote tourism and cycle tourism in le Marche, together with Antonella Rutigliano, who talks about disability and sport, sharing her experiences and results as a Paralympic athlete, aiming to  motivate other people with physical disability to do the same.

We participated in this promotional event, hosted and beautifully prepared by Rosso di Sera Italian Restaurant on Monmouth Street in London, who provided a delicious array of culinary excellence and delights from the Marche region. The Italian atmosphere built throughout the evening with the amazing Opera singing, performed by Villa InCanto‘s artists. 

This project was supported by the Marche Region and some of the most important public and private operators of the territory, that help to make it happen. I strongly recommend you to go for a meal at Rosso di Sera in London, and to check out Villa InCanto’s website for their upcoming events and to travel and visit the beautiful Marche region of Italy.

See the post on the Facebook Page: Bike Long Ride Marche – London

Una manifestazione di cicloturismo per promuovere la Regione Marche attraverso il ciclismo, il buon cibo ed il canto. Da Ascoli Piceno fino a Londra, 2100 Km passando da Milano e Parigi, nel cuore dell’Europa.
Una bellissima iniziativa promozionale creata ed organizzata da Marco Fumagalli di Marche Bike Life con il supporto di alcuni sponsors e delle societa’ di promozione turistica locali. Arrivati a Londra, una calorosa accoglienza preparata dai Marchigiani di Londra, presso il ristorante Rosso di Sera. L’atmosfera e’ stata implementata dalla compagnia artistica Villa InCanto con esibizioni canore dei suoi artisti di Opera.
La disponibilita’, passione e simpatia espresso dalla comunita’ marchigiana presente, ha sicuramente creato un effetto attrazione per gli Inglesi presenti, molti dei quali, ahime’ neppure conoscevano l’esistenza della Regione Marche. Mi auguro questo evento sia da esempio e sia l’inizio di una serie di manifestazioni atte a far conoscere e scoprire le regioni e localita’ italiane meno frequentate e che piu’ fanno fatica ad attirare il turismo.

Cycling Tour through Veneto Italy

A cycling tour is one of the best ways to explore and discover the beauty of a region or Country. As you probably know, I’m a cycling tour consultant and photographer with a good knowledge of most touristic locations all over Europe, specialising in Italy and France. I now live in London, but it’s always a great pleasure for me to go back to Italy, to assist tourists in their trip making sure they have a memorable travel experience.

Looking at Italy through the eyes of a tourist, makes me realise how beautiful it is and how much it has to offer in terms of stunning landscapes, historical cities and architecture, and of course the delicious food and wine.

Great atmosphere in Corvara #mdd29

It’s only 6:30am when the Maratona dles Dolomites starts from La Villa in Badia. TV helicopters are flying up and down the valley to film the event, capturing a “snake of cyclists” rolling up the winding Passo Campolongo’s road. Watch a short video clip from Instagram:

If you are interested in participating in a cycling event in Italy, the Maratona dles Dolomites is the one to do. Great winding roads across beautiful open valleys with breathtaking scenery. Also being in Italy, the food goes without saying and, in this area, they know how to feed and to entertain torists. Thanks for passing by and.. hope to see you in next year’s edition of the Maratona dles Dolomites!
