REVIEW: The Castelli “Unlimited” collection of jersey, bibshorts, gloves and more, is designed for riders who love both adventure, and road cycling. Here's a close look at the Castelli collection's features and performance.
An awesome mix of gear this week: Castelli Team INEOS collection, Canyon 2021 Inflite, new Muc-Off inner tube sealant, Selle Royal 'Back in the Saddle', join Scott's pro athletes for group rides and workouts on Zwift and La Vuelta and the Cervantes Institute present The Spanish-Dutch Cycling Dictionary.
TRAVEL VIDEO: I discovered riding in Italy's prosecco region in the Veneto as part of the Prosecco Cycling gran fondo. Vineyards, lush rolling hills, and a 19% climb will also feature as the major obstacle in the 2020 Giro d'Italia's stage 14 time trial from Conegliano to Valdobbadiene. Luckily I had the GoPro rolling for some stunning on-bike video of the climb, the ride, and the prosecco & scampi rest stop.
I braved torrential rains and white knuckle driving on the I5 to make the 6+ hour journey to visit the Castelli USA headquarters in Portland. The rough weather set the stage for my visit - to finally see and ride the much anticipated complete RoS Collection - including jacket, gloves, shoe covers, cap, and the Nanoflex Pro 2 bibtights.
Just like Mrs. Pez - the right cycling baselayer is essential to keep me warm on cold winter days. Modern fabrics, design, and construction have opened up more choices than ever before, so here are seven different baselayers from Castelli, Alé Bikewear, Nalini, and Assos that I've been using for a variety of cold weather rides and warming requirements.
