Slow bicycle traveller with a passion for writing and photography. If he's not traveling he loves to get lost along the thousand paths that run through the beautiful mountains of Trentino and Lake Iseo surroundings where he lives, both on foot and by mountain bike.
Eternal Peter Pan who loves to realize their dreams without leaving them too long in the drawer, has devoted much of his life to cycling, traveling in New Zealand, the Balkans, Norway Argentina and many other countries. Lately he spent ten months by bike in South East Asia and crossed the Andes by bike.
Everything has started from my brother's proposal. At the beginning of the week he tells me that Thursday he would leave to France to attend the cycling race La Marmotte, the most prestigious amateur biicycle race on transalpine soil, which involves mythical climbing as Croix de Fer (Glandon), Telegraphe, Galibier and the final Alp d'Huez. He asks me if I want to escort him and, after a short indecision, I accept. 
We leave Thursday afternoon, destination Les 2 Alps: me, my brother, his girlfriend and another couple of friends who will participate (without victory ambitions) to the race in the Alps. 
At the end, result of these three splendid days dedicated to cycling: beautiful sunny days, a thrilling ride on bicycle along Tour de France's roads and, as cherry on the cake, my brother's victory: he managed to beat Dutchman, Bert Dekker, after a hearthbreaking duel I've followed from the first to the last mile with the car.

Hanoi is the elegant capital city of Vietnam sprawling its way along the Red River banks. There are many lakes, parks and leafy quarters which make the city just freshly green all year round. Ha Noi was first built in 1010 by King Ly Thai To who checked and found out that Feng-shui here was exceptionally good for the prosperity of the kingdom that time; Ha Noi was called Thanh Long meaning "the city of ascending dragons" then.
I'm going to take inspiration from an user's question to briefly explain how to create maps on Google Maps with our GPS tracks and then insert them on the blog. To understand what I am talking about, you can see an example down here or have a look to the section of the MTB itineraries on this website: each itinerary has a Google Maps track displayed above the description.
If you practice mountain biking, you know maintenance and regular checks of the vehicle are fundamental. Sometimes, with a bit of attention, we realize that the wheel rim is touching the brake pads. This is due to a bad alignment of the wheel that makes it not centered: a stone on the road, a fall or just a normal loosening could be enough. In the following video we'll see how to bring our wheel back into proper alignment.
From my point of view, it is one of the most underrated accessories for bicycle touring: bicycle racks, both front and rear, when you're travelling, is fundamental; choosing the right one can save you from many jams. A too fragile one may break after a few kilometers, on the other side an heavy one may add unnecessary weight to the bike – in addiction to the luggage. In this article I'll make an overview on bike racks suited for those who are going to front a bike trip, considering the type of travel, and considering what the market does offer too.
Life in Travel takes shape from the desire to travel of two crazy adventure lovers... is a site created to tell friends and family the emotions of a year in Australia and has evolved over time into a container full of our passions: Travel, Mountain, photography, mountain biking and much more ... stories, tips, itineraries and guides to share what we love: to live the life!

Below you'll find some words trying to tell who we are and what we love to do: these biographies are not exhaustive but will make you understand who you're dealing with, if you want to know more you just need to follow Life in Travel or, more simply, contact us... we will try to answer your curiosity! Just one thing: we are Italians and you know... italians are awful in English, so we apologize if we make some mistakes but desire to transfer our enthusiasm prevailed over fear of being defeated by the grammar. Oh well, you're already bored, so let's get into it: here are two lines about the creators and managers of this crazy dream that it is a "life on the road"
