What I Love:

I am an outdoor enthusiast: I love hiking alpine paths, cycling challenging climbs, climbing breathtaking peaks, back-country skiing, snowboarding, roller skating.

Trek Travel Role:

My Favorite Ride:

Like all cyclists living at the foothills of the legendary Monte Grappa, I enjoy climbing this mountain from its various routes to the top. Reaching the summit of the mountain that was one of the main theaters of the Great War is every time tough and rewarding. Stopping at half way for an espresso, making new friends along the route and cheering with a celebratory beer at the top always makes it an incredible day. This is cycling heaven!!

I have a Wilier Le Roi road bike and a Trek Stache mountain bike
