TRAVEL: CycleItalia Opens Piedmont Cycling Resort
I recently talked with CycleItalia's owner Larry Theobald to talk about his new operation, Piedmont Cycling Resort. Hotel Ariotto has been CycleItalia’s northern Italian HQ since their start and now they’re featuring what they describe as more than a bike hotel, a true cycling resort.
Travel: Chasing Il Lombardia!
"Spectating at Il Lombardia" was the subject of the email from PEZ-Fan Ron V. looking for tips on chasing the 'Race of the Falling Leaves'. I had the perfect itinerary for him - since I'd already done it in 2015. With the calendar's last big event coming Oct 7th, here's a nice little read and photo book that I think captures the epicness and essence of beautiful race in a truly beautiful setting.
What Makes a Bike Hotel Great?
We're long time fans of the Garda Bike Hotel - family run hospitality as only the Italians can offer, top notch riding for all levels, excellent location in the wine country near Verona. But I thought maybe you'd like in a second opinion - so I talked with Calla Barras - serious cyclist and serious traveller - about what makes the Garda Bike Hotel one of Italy's best bike hotels.

Xpedo Rider Blog: A Fast Four Days In The Great White North!
The ATB Tour of Alberta might be one of the final UCI races for many of the participating teams, but it was by no means a “farewell tour”. In fact, the race was as aggressive, even more so on occasion, than the Tour de Taiwan and Tour of Utah, both of which were hotly contested every kilometer of every stage.
Il Lombardia: Ed's First Falling Leaves
Retro PEZ: This Saturday sees the 111th edition of the Giro di Lombardia, the final Classic of the season and the oldest Autumn race on the calendar. Ed Hood isn't old enough to remember the first edition in 1905, but has had a romantic relationship with the 'Race of the Falling Leaves' for a long time and casts his memory back to his first visit to the Northern Italian race in 2007.

TOOLBOX: Coconut Water Magic?
Even more than training, the field of nutrition is full of commercial interests and marketing masquerading as sound “science.” One of the latest fashionable trends is drinking coconut water for health and hydration, but is it all it’s cracked up to be?
Toolbox: Fresh Fall Training Ideas
Racing season is taxing! Focused rides chasing ultra specific watts and heart rate values and races where you are taxing yourself time and again in pursuit of results. Frankly, the pursuit of excellence can become monotonous. Thankfully, nature gave us the fall! So what is one to do if the idea of one more watts-based workout may push you over the edge into madness?
