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?

Words & Pictures by Guido Casbah The first thing that came to my mind when my boss said: “I’m sorry Guido, we lost our big client, in two months there will be no more work for you” was “ok I’ll ride to Aquasanta Terme for the Holy Water Death Race then”.

La sbraga dei vini

Words by Cello / Pictures by Cello & Fisto Ci stanno una Francese, un Finlandese, due Laghèe e un Capitano che decidono di andare a fare un percorso inesistente: La Strada dei Vini.
