Le statistiche parlano chiaro. Un turista americano spende in media 5.000 euro per un viaggio di una settimana in sella a una bicicletta. Una spesa paragonabile, tra le spese per passatempi, solo a quella dedicata al golf. Questi dati (e una grande passione personale) devono aver pesato nella decisione di Beppe Salerno, torinese, 46 anni, di ciment...

My first trip to Sicily was pre-GPS in the early 2000s. Desperately lost in the chaos of downtown Palermo on a congested one-way street, I yelled over honking horns to ask a policeman how to get to my hotel. “Well, you can go straight, left, left, and left again, then right … or,” he paused and waved his hands with the drama of an opera star, “you...

The possibility was last touted in 2010 by former Giro d'Italia director Angelo Zomegnan, who attended a reception at the Italian embassy in Washington, DC for a project to bring the race there in 2012. The city was considered a front runner out of three candidates, but faded after the DC Mayor Adrien Fenty lost his re-election bid and Zomegnan was...

It will soon be possible to cycle around Italy's largest lake on an incredible 'floating' bicycle path. The path has already been called Europe's most beautiful bike ride, and it's not even finished yet -- but drone footage of the route under construction has been viewed tens of thousand of times on social media.

His love for cycling extended across decades, and was instrumental in kick-starting careers of several top-level pros as well as provided early funding for what eventually became USA Cy...

"I'm really, really excited for the season that is coming!" Barbieri said. "I am really proud that I will be part of a big team, one of most important women's cycling teams in the world. I'm sure that it will be a big opportunity for me to learn a lot of new things from these champions - World, Olympic and more!" Barbieri won her world title at her...

Even if I hadn’t ridden my bike 191 miles on roads that climbed 23,850 vertical feet in the past four days, my quads would have found the flight of steps up to the podium of the Giro d’Italia — the Tour of Italy — steep. Still in my cleated cycling shoes, which are ideal for riding but not the best for walking, I ascend the galvanized steel treads...

Italy and bicycles—the first thing they bring to mind is likely the neo-realist masterpiece The Bicycle Thieves, which will soon celebrate its 75th anniversary. But there’s another story that’s even more powerful and all the more remarkable for being true: the tale of Gino Bartali, Italy’s wartime cycling champ and—unbeknownst to all but a few—secr...
