No need for Wings!

When do you not feel the need to have wings? Never? Well, try to remember, if you have tried something super extreme like snowboarding, then that was the time when you could feel like flying! Flying even faster and cooler than the eagle!

If you have no idea about that activity yet, then I would like to invite you to go ahead and check this video out:

Break from Bikes


It is true that there is not much we can do with our favorite bikes in winter. So it is sometimes better to give them a rest and find a good alternative to this transport. Today I would like to recommend one of those interesting choices you can make: go for snowmobiles!

Snowmobiles are super cool winter transports, which have the comfort of “Santa’s sleigh”, speed of motorbikes and the look of attractive cars! This all-in-one modern sleigh can not only make it easy to walk on the heavy snow, but also entertain the ones who are riding it really well!

You do not really have to own one in order to take a ride. Just check out the tours with snowmobiles and rent them for as much as you would like!

Back to safety tips

I watched such a breathtaking movie, which was in fact taken about 4-5 years before. “127 hours” is said to have taken bunch of awards, including the “Best Capture of the Year”, “Best Acting of the Year” and so on.

Anyways, this post is not really about how cool the movie is. There was one point that caught my attention. The main hero decides to take a bike tour to the canyons in Utah. Imagine, the one rides a bike on uneven roads of mountains and hills on his OWN! If you remember, in one of the earliest posts we discussed how important it is to have a fellow on any kind of tours just in case. It prevents some unlucky accidents and even of they do happen, there will be someone to support you.

I guess you pretty much understood what is gonna happen to the main hero. Let me not intrigue you much and just show you the actual trailer of the movie:

More on cycling in Rome…

I really hope you checked out the reviews about cycling in Rome from the last post. Today I decided to go further into this and in order to make the chocolate on the cake, here I found an amaaazing vidoe of how it looks and feels like to travel in Rome by bike!

Let me remind you guys that it is not that early to start planning new bike tours for spring and summer!

Top Bike Tours


Today I made a little research about which country takes the first place in its bike riding tours and the result was not really surprising – it said Rome, Italy!

Well, definitely, this huge museum under the sky provides any level of excitement to each traveler, no matter how they decide to travel: by car, by tourists’ bus or just on foot. And we all know that enjoying this city’s beauty on a bike is the best choice possible: stop wherever you want, do not suffer from traffic jams and keep in fit!

The review on the following web site show that Rome is amazing not only for its enchanting architecture and historical heritage, but also for the best bike-rental conditions!

Seeing is believing

Let me take you further into the culinary cycling tour that I talked about last time. These guys are travelling in Canada on their bikes. This tour is more focused on the wine gardens and the places of wine’s production. It is beautiful and feels so healing and relaxing when you just watch their rides… So what if you become in their places?!…

Cycling + Culinary

Who said that cycling tours are only about riding and riding a bike forever? If only the cyclist has a wish, he can turn it into such an adventure, to which even entertaining cruises would envy! For instance, take a look at Culinary Bike tours…

Culinary and bike, do they not sound absolutely different from each other? Well, this is where the unusual and original things start – combination of two different things!

These are the tours, which have the special routine and map in certain city and country. Most of the destinations for cyclists there are famous vine villages, farms, markets – every source of the yummy food we consume daily.

Tours include extraordinary meals of the day and friendly meetings with amazing farmers and gardeners on the way. Following site canbe an example to how and where these tours can be organized:

Cycling around Kyrgyzstan

The nation of “cyclists” have always been the most impressive ones for me. They amaze me with their energy, patience and positive look into life. Today I would like to talk about one of those awesome cyclists I met.

That person is actually unknown for me, just like for you. It was one of those beautiful summer days when I was enjoying the mountain atmosphere in Kyrgyzstan. That time I was a bit lazy and took a tour on a mini bus with other tourists. There we met that young man from France. I would give him about 30 years according to his strong body and his beard, so I was shocked when we found that he was only 19!

We could see that he had been riding for pretty long – he looked really tired. When he got his map out and told us he was coming all the way from Bishkek city till Chichkan gorge, where we were standing, we were all knocked out! He was holding a map on his hand and his goal was to reach the southern part of the country only by bike! This is what I would call a bike hero!

Cycling in winter

It amazes me how people can be faithful to their hobbies! Chilling winter is here and the roads are covered with thick snow. However, for the real lover of cycling it is not an obstacle. Instead, he looks at it as a new enjoyable challenge!

This is what one of those great cyclists say: “I try not to give up riding my bike even on the snowy roads. It keeps me in fit, happy and out of traffic jams!” Honestly, there are so many advantages even in simply riding to the grocery store or to work. This saves your time and bunch of your nerves!

I recommend you to check out this source, which will give any bit of detail connected with winter cycling, starting from its advantages to how to get equipped properly for such activity.
