Not many of us have the liberty of being able to ride a bike the whole year round, due to harsh winters. It is normally in the darkest days close to Christmas that we decide to sit down and watch films about bikes to remind us of those long forgotten summer days and motivate us to put in time on the home trainer. Cyclefilm is one company who provide beautiful, information packed films to do just that. I caught up with Markus Neuert, Cyclefilm owner and director, one morning on Gran Canaria.
Part Two: 8.30 am. 6,000 cyclists descend on the start line of the Gran Fondo Colnago at the Expo Centre in Piacenza. The start is one hour away and everyone wants a good position. The riders are separated into 5 different grids dependant on their level. The grids fill up with cyclists like grains of sand in an hour glass.
