EICMA2019: Our Impressions and thoughts after our visit

Yesterday I decided to take up the kind invitation from the Eicma Press Office to come to visit the 77th edition of Italy’s most prestigious Motorbike and Cycle Trade shows at the international structure designed by the architect Massimiliano Fuksas: Rho Fiera Milano.  I admit the last time I participated was in 2017, where I did not find it of general interest as it was virtually 100% dedicated to the motorbike sector which I had no interest in. This year was much different – hence this little write up. Early morning rise at 6 am from my home in Brescia, a quick 20-minute walk to Brescia train and I hopped onto the 7.53 ‘Regionale’ train direction Milano Centrale. Probably ten years had passed since the last time I caught the train to Milan. Unfortunately, the trains are still the same: dirty, cramped and in urgent need of maintenance. Our train […]

Eurobike 2019  Friedrichshafen, Germany – Our impressions and Experience

We experienced this marvellous international cycling machine as a Brand Ambassador  helping out behind the scenes and then as BikeChange.guru… Enjoy our tales and photos. Our voyage started on the the 3rd of September with an early 6 am morning rise and an hour half drive to to the Trento Nord Motorway car park from my house in Brescia, where i was to be picked up by the Crew at Dr.Pad (Premium Italian Chamois Cycling Pads) who were on show at Eurobike. I am fortunate to be one of their Trade Ambassadors, and they requested my presence… How could i refuse the invite? Apart from producing probably the best Chamois pads around, they really are the nicest people (Leonardo, Claudio, Corrado and Serena) i have met so far in the cycling trade – It was a real pleasure working with them. After a six hour car drive we approached Friedrichshafen […]

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 […]
