La Bici.La Natura.La Liberta'

I have just returned from a long weekend of cycling in Italy, in taking part at few Granfondos and socialising rides.

I(We) was very lucky to find an astonishing weather with temperatures raising above the 25C with sunny days,this meant that cycling could have been more longer than anticipated.In fact not even 2 hours after I landed,I was on the bike in the middle of the Italian Apennines with friends enjoy the views and chatting,while sharing our passion.

Intense moments for SaddleDrunk

Ciao everyone, you have not heard from me for a long time.The reason is because 2 weeks ago my first and greatest friend,guidance of each step of my life passed away.

RIding in the Italian Apennines in my Father's honour.

My Father, now will follow me forever in all my rides, each centimetre I ride, He will look from above.Rest in peace mio Amico.You will be missed by us all.

After this short reflection in honour of my Father, I give an update of the future plans ahead.

First, we will have the first SaddleDrunk Bike Ride in London soon where everyone is welcome to join.Any levels,bikes,clothing are welcome.Barriers should not be raised by those factors to those who love riding.

Then, I will be going to South Africa in Cape Town to take part in the biggest cycling event, "The Cape Argus" where I will be riding with a local team from the Western Cape.

Also, while there I will be having a pleasure to cooperate with a Japanese top cycling website and a South Korean cycling magazine. Talks will be held about the event and to arrange future plans for cycling in those two countries.
