It’s totally true that if – in our lives – we did some things Italians do regularly, our life would be better.

Cycle Tourists

From: BiciVeneto.it
So what is a Fondo and what the heck is so Gran about it? American cycling culture has a reputation for lagging behind European cycling culture in every way: the style, the history, the races, the fans, the media coverage.

Traveling Cuba – Last Stage

By: Zdenko Kahlina  

Varadero – outside of all inclusive resorts

After traveling throughout the Cuba for 14 days in rented car Vera and I returned to the place where our journey began. It seems like we are leaving old Cuba behind and returning to “real” world, with lots of Canadian tourist around and English language spoken everywhere.

Traveling Cuba – Stage 6.

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Central Cuba – Off the beaten track in Cuba
The leg from the port town of Cienfuegos to Playa Giron, leads through a swamp area and along sugar plantations. The recurring sound of horses makes this leg of the trip cozy. It is a journey amid abundant vegetation very near to the coast, small villages and scare cities.

He’s Not Heavy, He’s My Domestique

Contributed by Leslie Reissner

“Tomorrow we ride…” is a book of memoirs by Jean Bobet, a French intellectual who seems to have become a pro cyclist simply because of the force of his brother’s personality. That brother, of course, was Louison Bobet, the first cyclist to win the Tour de France three years in a row.

Traveling Cuba – Stage 5.

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Central Cuba – Off the beaten track in Cuba
After breakfast we left Trinidad for the Cienfuegos and Península de Zapata. There we were expecting an extensive swamp region that is inhabited by crocodiles and flamingos, also declared a National Park. We also wanted to see well known Bahia de los Cochinos, the famous Bay of Pigs.
