‘NA VITA DE MAI MURÌ – EPISODE 5 (CIASCIAUNA)

Words & pictures by Cello Che bello guardare i video sull'Internet dove tutti spaccano i culi senza intoppi, senza problemi, dove i sentieri e la vita sono sempre flooooooow. E poi noi Cani siamo così: innocenti, naif, ingenui, semplici, bellidemamma scesi dalle montagne; crediamo più o meno a tutto, dalle scie chimiche agli alieni fra di noi, da Donald Trump presidenteditutti agli hillbombers su vimeo. Allora ecco il Ciasciauna, un passo tra...

Paradisiño

Words by Ok Fede / Pictures by Cello & Ok Fede Difference in height and dirt roads, why not? And why not on a touring bike, maybe with 28c city tires on? Proposals (invitations) must be accepted for what they are, without questioning, without reasoning; so when Cello told me about a few passes and valleys we would have crossed, I made a quick google search, saw they were amazing...

Mäuerchen Pass

1. PREFACE: YOU CAN NOT GET OUT ALIVE FROM THE ‘90s (words by Clava) When I was young (my grandpa stories always started like this…) I attended the high school. It was during the 90s and I remember I had the habit to go up on my house attic rummaging and searching inside dusty closets looking for scrawny and shabby clothes that not even grandpa used anymore, not even to spade the...

Gli Spacconi

Words by Clava / Pictures by Cello, Clava, Fisto & Pagha Fuck it! The Holywater Death Race, the gravel race in Acquasanta Terme, fell through. The Cani won’t go. We’ll regret it! This time again I must stay here in the valley with my pals playing the braggart narrow-minded country-dweller (do you know those guys who spend all the day outside the town bar with their rolled up t-shirt sleeves and...

La Madonna di Civitavecchia

LA MADONNA DI CIVITAVECCHIA - Words by Cello / Pictures by Cello & Clava   [masterslider id="21"]   F: “What a bore with these bicycles! When will we have chicks and drugs?” C: “Am I wrong or Specialized makes stuff for roadies only?” It’s nice to be the captain of a collective that, when you tell them that maybe we’re into the seekandenjoy project (conceived by Yonder Journal and powered by Specialized) they...

La neve piange

Words by Clava / Pictures by Clava, Pagha, Save & Cello March 8th 2015 While reading Cello’s message I remember that day on Maloja pass, sitting on a table in a dry aseptic place, I remember we were laughing at us, thinking about how derisive we were the day before while laying in front of a hot stove saying that, after climbing the Maloja, we should aim at the Bernina...

Nostalgia Canaglia

Words by Clava / Pictures by Cello It’s saturday afternoon and I am sprawling on a chair outside my hometown bar, enjoying that sun that in summer I usually reject but now (it’s January 24th) I like so much. On the other side of the bar table sits Farcio - a guy known for his adventures Indiana Jones’ style - I think he is doing the same as I’m… And what...

Track Bikes & Backpacks

Words by Clava / Pictures by Cello & Clava The day after this: http://caniscioltivaltellina.it/alpine-dirt-roads-on-road-bikes/ “…Suddenly you see barriers and signs with the word finish written on them. The stage is over!… But soon you realize that the road continues, and so you go on…” “Watch out for the witch!” - told us the guy on the sidewalk that, after overstepping us, stopped his walk, as if all of a sudden something...

Steep is real

Words by Roberto “ventoinfacciagigisabanisettebellezzeuranuran” Contessa / Pictures by Cello September 28, 2014, a date that will remain in the history of cycling ... or maybe not ...certain is that the leaves are turning yellow and there is not much time left to climb the rock monsters of the Alps before the snow will start to whiten their tops! Now or never! Today in the viewfinder of Cani Sciolti there is...
