  • From Paris to the blue waves of the Mediterranean, from Marseille to Bordeaux, passing along the roseate

    and dreaming roads sleeping under the sun, across the calm of the fields of the Vende,

    following the Loire, which flows on still and silent, our men are going to race madly, unflaggingly.

    It is a sport, a business, a culture.Initially Tour de France was launched in 1903 by LAuto, a French daily sports paper, to increase its circulation. The journey was so long that riders were required to cycle days and nights. I suffered on the road; I was hungry, I was thirsty, I was sleepy, I suffered, I cried between Lyon and Marseille. Maurice Garin noted.There was not only sweat, but blood too. Supporters of the regional rider, Faure, assault the Italian, Gerbi. He is thrown to the ground, beaten like plaster. He escapes with a broken finger reported Pierre Chany in 1904. Garin was also one of the victims. he said Ill win the Tour de France provided Im not murdered before we get to Paris. Much passion aroused by the race. France was made vividly visible and alive to its nation, whilst few people at that time had travelled beyond their closest town. It also triggered the desire among people of knowing more about their country

    With the bicycle boom thats going strong all over the world, cycling is on everybodys lips, even in Italy. But its only a come-back, as cycling has a long history in Italy - of bike builders, riders and social culture. The contemporary phenomenon is especially interesting with in urban boundaries, in cities, where cars dominate the street scene, and travelling distances are longer. In big cities such as Milano and Roma, theres an echo of international themes of fashion and style. So, like other big cities around the world - Tokyo, San Francisco and New York for example - cycling is growing among younger generations.

    This phenomenon is due to a mixture of different social factors like a major interest in ambientalism, a renewed focus on simple designs and simple life style, influenced in part by the economic world crisis, thats changing the way of city life. Bike culture is close to all of this: a bike is often the easiest, quickest

    I go everywhere by bike: Cycling from one work meeting to another, going out at night, shopping at the grocery market, going to clubs and meeting people. No matter its raining, snowing, freezing or too hot to breathe.

    and most economic way to travel around the city.

    In the metropolitan areas of Paris, London and Berlin, the number of cyclists is growing every year. The young in particular are inspired by the style of old school riders like Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali. Bike builders often look at the work of historical Italian brands like Campagnolo, Bianchi and Colnago. So where is the novelty?

    The new cycling generation stays connected to the old theres a shared passion between predecessors and this generation, however differently. In a bygone era, a bicycle was a means to escape the city, a way of transport and a sport, whereas kids nowadays express themselves and communicate through their bikes. I find the same motivation myself - I started using bikes in Milan, where I live. First on a BMX and now I am a fixed gear maniac. I go everywhere

  • by bike: cycling from one work meeting to another, going out at night, shopping at the grocery market, going to clubs and meeting people. As I said, Im a cycling maniac - I use the bike even when its raining, snowing, freezing or too hot to breathe. And there are plenty of people living the same passion in the same way. Were growing in number.

    We have followers too, people that admire this kind of behavior and want to imitate it. Not only in the way we move, but also in our rides. The bike as an object has become more important over the last five or six years, with an increased focus on style, color, fashion and purpose. With road bikes, mountain bikes, track bikes, BMXs, even the old fashioned city bikes like Graziella (a foldable Italian bike from the 70s) we
