Sacro Macello di Valtellina IV

Words by Vito / Pictures by Alexia, Guido & Cello   Partenza sotto il diluvio, conoscendo i miei polli mi incollo al culo di Mr. Ohm e nei primi km di flat verso il Ghisallo prendo tutti gli schizzi del suo mudguard nei denti. Iniziamo a climbare il Ghisallo come se non ci fosse un domani, mi giro prendendo fiato e mi accorgo che rimaniamo solo io, Ohm e Pascal da Roma;...

Il più stronzo che conosco

Words by Lo-Fi Boi / Pictures by Alexei "Lone Wolf" Popov It’s 6/6 and the italian fixed gear scene gives us a lot of superlative events, but we are assholes so me and Alexei a.k.a. Lone Wolf decide to do a very asshole thing: Bologna – Roma on fixed gear bikes. I think it is not too much for me to do 420 km, so I decide to shit out of...

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...

Frontalieri

Words & pictures by Cello This trip was formerly rode by Giovanni http://granciclismo.com/frontalieri/ and Massimo https://spokesandnipples.wordpress.com/2015/01/13/13-gennaio-14-frontaliers/ Thank you! We've only added the road from our homes to Argegno and back from Menaggio.   Ferry rules. Nordic ski in Lanzo d'Intelvi. The ficsi-friendly descent after the Arogno customs. If you are so lucky to find in Switzerland an empathic spot, you should always recommend it: Bar Colonne, Largo Mario Soldini, Mendrisio The hard climb to Scudellate. Crossing the...

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...

Viaggio al termine della notte

Words by Clava / Pictures by Cello La notte più lunga è stata lunga quanto basta: siamo partiti che era già cominciata e siamo tornati che non era ancora finita... Vi è mai capitato di camminare in una stanza al buio tendendo le mani in avanti in attesa di arrivare a toccare il muro? Sai che poco spazio ti divide da esso, solo pochi metri, ma il momento del contatto sembra non arrivare...

Randonnée delle Orobie

Words by Alexei "Lone Wolf" Popov / Preface by Cello / Pictures by Cello & Pagha Preface. It’s truly bizarre, but every time Mr. John Watson asks me to post some stuff on his website it is always something that has to do with failure. Yes, FAILURE. Failing is part of our everyday experience (I think I fail every single day, in one way or another) but it’s a term...

Sacro Macello di Valtellina

Words by Guido|CasbahCicloClub / Pictures by Guido|CasbahCicloClub, Cello & Gaf There’s nothing to say about sacro macello, it is the hardest, toughest, and purest race for track bikes I know. caniscioltivaltellina are a bunch of guys hanging around morbegno, a city on top of como lake, they may appear as normal guys with a good aptitude to alcoholics and over-buttered food, but there is definitely something more underneath. When it comes to riding they...
