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.

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.
Situated in the heart of the Treviso countryside, on the “Strada del Prosecco” (“Prosecco wine route”), it is a picturesque village immersed in the lush green landscape of Veneto’s pre-Alps. It is home to the eponymous abbey, built here in 1170 with the patronage of the Patriarch of Aquileia. St. Charles Borromeo was its abbot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Follina

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

Landscape of Prosecco Wine Vineyards Rolle Treviso 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.

Cycling tour in the Dolomites 

There are many beautiful places to go for a cycling tour, but you’d have to pick one only, I highly recommend you the Dolomites.

 

Cycling up the Passo Campolongo – Corvara Alta Badia

The scenery is simply stunning, with open valleys surrounded by rocky mountain peaks. A snake of tarmac to ride your bike on, always well maintained for the annual cycling event, the Maratona dles Dolomites.  We stay in Corvara Alta Badia, main centre of the event with easy access to all the surrounding roads to cycle on.

 

The beautiful Corvara in Alta Val Badia Dolomites

There are many mountain passes to choose from, going from a 3/4% gradient, up to 15% in places, perfect terrain to test your fitness and skills level.

 

Cycling Passo Fedaia Marmolada Dolomites

Our group is organised by La Fuga Travel cycling tour company, stays in the area for the whole week leading up to the Maratona event, to get used to the altitude, to familiarise  with the roads and to get ready for the big cycling day ahead.
