1. Our ode to bicycle travel. Some people think that it is all about the bike, but we all know that it isn't. When we go on tour, the most indelible memories we bring back are about the people we've met.

  2. Livigno.

    I got to know Livigno thanks to Telemark.
    The first time I went there was to ski at the most famous Telemark gathering in the world, the Skieda.
    And there I found myself, in an autumn day, pedaling on a bike with really big tyres. They
    come from far away and they're called Fat bikes.
    I'd always thought Telemark and Fat bikes had something in common and I wanted to know
    what that was.

    Anyone who sees Telemarkers bending their knees for the first time makes a weird expression,
    is astonished and gets all curious about it. It's the same thing that happens when people see
    those huge Fat tyres for the first time. The questions are always the same ones: “But can you
    go anywhere with that thing there?”, “Does it make it harder to pedal uphill?”, “And is it easier
    to go downhill?”, “How weird, I'd like to try it out...”
    There's something else that links the two sports though: their innate freedom. They take you
    away from classic skiing and classic cycling and let you travel, explore, go up and down any
    surface naturally.

    I adore slowness, or better I love following my own rhythm in doing things. This means being able to perceive better the connection between me and the tool I am using.
    I wanted to know whether the emotions I felt skiing in Livigno could be somehow reexperienced
    on my Fat bike so I called my friend Zanna.
    He lives and does Telemark skiing in Livigno. He organizes the Skieda and he loves Fat bikes as I do.
    So during one weekend at the end of September, all those places, valleys, mountain huts and
    alpine huts whose routes had been traced numerous times on skis were then reached by huge
    tyres. We met other friends on the way, as you do when you go skiing and it was simply great
    fun.

    I don't know whether Telemark and Fat bikes are truly the same thing. Though I've realized that
    we are the common denominator and when we visit a magic place in good company and in the
    enchanting and colorful autumn sun, we can't be anything other than happy. Awfully happy.
