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.

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.

How Cycling App STRAVA has changed the way we ride

3471357_300(Photo Strava.com)

STRAVA is a very addictive smartphone app and website that tracks cyclist’s rides via a GPS device such as Garmin, Suunto, Polar and many more.

As you’re out riding on your bike, all data are captured and stored in your cycle computer or on your phone app and then transferred to the Strava website.

We’ve tested the Phone App on different phones and found it very reliable, didn’t experience any app crashes which happens on other similar GPS phone apps. Strava’s App stays on even as you lock your phone’s keypad and also the route restores in case you’ve closed the app by mistake. The advantage of using the App from your phone is that you can upload immediately your ride onto Strava’s website without having to connect your device to a computer. Another good option is that you can link Strava with Instagram and all the photos uploaded on Intagram in the time of your ride, will also appear on and below your ride’s description on Strava’s website.

05232012_BLOGNEWSLETTERThis gives cyclists the possibility of analysing their performances, visualise the route on a map and also share with friends on Strava, Facebook, Twitter and other Social Network platforms. The addictive part of this app is that as you ride through a certain part, called “segment” of your route, you get to compare your performance in time with every other rider on Strava that has cycled that segment before.

Strava works out a sort of a virtual ranking, giving the top 10 time’s riders a reward badge or trophy that appears just below the map of their daily ride.

Other motivating “tools” on Strava are the Monthly Challenges to join, where the cyclist is pushed and commits himself to do more kilometres in the next month or in another pre-determined period of time, with the rewards or badges on the cyclist’s profile page, and below each rides for everyone to see.

Friends, followers and all other riders on Strava can also comment other people’s rides and give them  “KUDOS” which are the equivalent of facebook’s LIKE.

We’ve used it for a while now, recommended to all our friends cyclists and runners (there’s a Strava running section too) and we’ve found it very motivating, encouraging people to do that little bit more to keep active, get fitter and live a healthier life, which is our main philosophy too.

Thanks for reading it, get on your bike and cycle ..with Strava! 🙂
