COSMOBIKE 2020 – DAY 1 – EXPERIENCE

Verona the City that brought your Romeo and Juliet invited us to their annual cycling trade show called ‘Cosmobike‘ situated in the Verona Fiera Expo Area. First, of all, I would like to personally thanks them for the complimentary pass. Now let’s get down to our experience on Saturday morning 15 th February 2020. I must admit that this is not the first time I have visited this hard to understand trade fair. Actually I have been following it since its birth when it took over the reins from Padova Expobici Cycling Trade show – which I participated in as a visitor when I launched the first version of www.cambiobici.it. One thing you have to be careful in general when visiting Italian cycling trade shows are the hidden costs. So having prior experience was fundamental for my visit (parking and food at Verona Fiera are pretty expensive). I arrived in […]

HEY USA, CANADA, UK, ITALY AND CHINA WHAT MAKES BIKECHANGE.GURU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER MARKETPLACES?

You may be asking yourself why has someone created yet another Cycling marketplace? Are you crazy? In this article, I will be illustrating the main reasons that makes this project different from the others. First of all, this project has been created by the consultancy Mark Chambers Cycling Marketing & Sales (a respected ex-pat Export and Marketing Cycling consultant living in Brescia, Italy.) Mark has been heavily involved in the cycling marketing world since 2006 in Italy when he was invited by Carrera-Podium bikes to reposition their brand online successfully. Consequently, Mark was infected with the cycling bug and this passion continues to this very day where he is involved in cycling brands looking to position themselves in the United Kingdom or Italy. You will probably see Mark Chambers often at the main European trade shows such as Eurobike or replying to the many questions asked to him online thanks […]

GIANT CYCLES : REIGN ADVANCED PRO 29 WINS DESIGN & INNOVATION AWARD!

The Reign Advanced Pro 29 0 was named a winner in the 2020 Design & Innovation Award. Viewed as a benchmark achievement for the bike industry’s highest-performing products, the D&I Award brings together select journalists, professional test riders and other industry experts who spend countless hours testing various products to choose the best in their respective categories. The 2020 Reign Advanced Pro 29, a pro-level enduro machine that was developed with input from Giant Factory Off-Road Team racers, was singled out for its cutting-edge innovation and how it performed during testing in the Italian Dolomites. Test riders spent 16 days on the alpine terrain of Kronplatz, in Italy’s South Tyrol region, pushing off-road bikes and gear to the limits to determine which ones were worthy of winning the top award. “For 2020, Giant has completely revised the Reign,” wrote D&I Award testers. “The result is an elegant 29” enduro bike that stands out with its […]

TIPS FOR PROTECTING YOURSELF IN A CYCLING ACCIDENT

TIPS FOR PROTECTING YOURSELF IN A CYCLING ACCIDENT

The following tips provide some general advice about how to protect yourself both before and after a bicycle accident occurs. Tip # 1 – Know and follow the rules of the road. Knowing the rules of the road makes you a better and safer cyclist. Bicyclists who fail to follow the rules of the road in their country are at risk of not only being involved in an accident, but also at risk for being blamed for contributing to their own injuries after an accident when someone else is at fault (this is called the defense of contributory negligence). Tip # 2 – Boost your PIP or Med Pay Coverage on your automobile insurance. An injured bicyclist can seek financial protection through her own automobile insurance if the accident involved a motor vehicle. Some types of coverage, such as Personal Injury Protection (PIP) or Medical Payments Coverage (Med Pay) will […]

CYCLING – THE EXERCISE FOR POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH

While virtually all exercise is beneficial for general, ‘whole body’ health, there are some forms of exercise that are especially great for positive mental health. Several studies have found that the combination of exercise and exposure to the outdoors is a bit of a magic combination for emotional and mental health – it’s now considered to a key therapeutic component of any strategy to combat depression, anxiety, and stress. Cycling comes up again and again as particularly useful for positive mental health – it’s easily accessible to most of us and the rhythmic, aerobic and low impact nature of cycling, much like other motor skills, has known brain boosting benefits. Beyond the ‘happiness factor’ and the general mental health benefits of exercise , though are a host of specific benefits that recommend cycling as the part of your ‘first aid kit’ for mental health. It promotes positive mental health. Self-Esteem, depression, anxiety […]

ARE YOU EXPERIENCING INTESTINAL PROBLEMS AFTER CYCLING? THIS COULD BE THE CAUSE.

ARE YOU EXPERIENCING INTESTINAL PROBLEMS AFTER CYCLING? THIS COULD BE THE CAUSE.

Whilst surfing the net we came across this really useful article explaining which danger lies underneath a dirty ‘Cycling drinking bottle’. I myself have suffered from intestinal problems and this could be a cause of irritable bowel. DO YOU HAVE INTESTINAL PROBLEMS AFTER CYCLING? MAYBE A LOOK UNDER THE WATER CAP OF YOUR CYCLING BOTTLE COULD BE THE CAUSE. The runner’s high is an almost-transcendent state. Your muscles burn, your blood pumps, your arms and legs move in perfect sync. Sweat trickles down your face, but you hardly notice. You realize you’re thirsty, and you barely break stride as you grab your reusable water bottle and take a swig of – germs. That’s right. Thousands of moisture-loving bacteria may be crawling on your favorite refillable drinking container. And the act of quenching your thirst while you exercise could potentially make you sick. Since most people can’t finish a workout without […]

Gravel Grinding in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland with the UKGravelBike.club

More durable than a road bike and much faster than a mountain bike, gravel bicycles present an exciting option for the rider who wants to travel on and off road. Travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination around Britain with us. Today i would like to tell you a story about how from nothing the UkGravelbike.club was born. It all started in 2014 when i was doing some consultancy work (Area manager)  at Cicli Elios – an Italian Cycling brand looking to approach the United Kingdom in a cautious manner. Cicli Elios is a historic Italian third party assembler located in Badia Polesine and had recently started to promote its own line of Road, Mtb, E-Bike and Gravel Bicycles. Being a Cycling marketing and lead generation expert i opted to create the first Facebook Group page from scratch to try and promote their gravel bikes better. As time progressed […]

Riva Bike Festival 2019

Every year in May, in the pittoresche settings of Riva del Garda (Trento), The Bike Festival hosts the most important International Cycling Brands at one of the best run open public events of the Italian Cycling Calendar – RIVA BIKE FESTIVAL powered by FSA. The Event is obviously orientated much around Adventure Cycling (Downhill,Gravity,Xc, E-Bike & Gravel) and Cycle Tourism due to the location, Lake Garda which has an embarrassing quantity of Adventure Cycling Routes. We went yesterday to meet many friends and scoured around the stands reporting for you. Big thanks to SRAM for the really useful rain coat and MAGURA for the top popcorn! My personal favourites were the YT Industries and the POLE Frame Geometries! Which are your favourites? It was an impressive turnout (lots of foreign visitors: Germans, Austrians, Brits, Dutch) even with the terrible weather that arrived at 16.00. Here are the forecasted amount of […]
