Destination Japan

What do I know about Japan? I’ve been there three times only, bikepacking twice. My visits sum up to a month, miles in the saddle to one thousand. That scarcely gives me any grounds for writing any travel advices. The culture, the people, the history of the country,...

Monte Baldo

I decided to embark upon an adventure on Monte Baldo while enjoying my coffe corretto con grappa after a few headache-inducing talks of a mathematical conference that I attended in Gargnano at Lago di Garda. The massive 40km long mountain range occupies the whole...

Paris – Roubaix

Do you even pavé bro? Coz I do and you should too. I do all the shitty roads that are available around my hometown Krakow. Gravel, dirt, cobbles? Bring it on! I can handle this as long as my road bike can handle it. And it turns out that it can handle quite a lot....

Rubite

I hardly remember the details of our ride through Rubite. Maybe the past consumed my memories and buried recollections of the old adventure under a layer of new ones. Or maybe it's one of those tricks played by our minds when things go rough - the details are stressed...

Fuji

Wednesday, 3 a.m. I am awake. Not entirely, but awake. Awake and jetlagged. It’s been a few days since I’ve come back home but I am still unadjusted. I don’t fight it. This is my zen. Never fight with yourself unless you’ve got really good reasons. I am 7 hours from...

Tremalzo

When you go to Passo Tremalzo from Passo Nota, it’s a classic MTB route. Mix it up with an uphill to Passo Nota from Vesio by the slopes of Corna Vecchia and a descent to Tremosine via Passo della Crocetta to have a ride that is hardly forgettable. The route’s not so...

Jasiek

When planning a trip I usually focus on chosing a destination. It seems to be the most important thing, the main source of excitment and motivation. Other components, not any less important, like people I would ride with or equipmnet I would use, they seems always to...

Stivo

Sometimes the best things come by surprise. For me, Monte Stivo, a peak of 2059 m close to Lago di Garda, is one of them. I climbed it even though I had no intention whatsoever of doing it beforehand. By all means, my trip started quite conventionally. I took off from...

Cala Gonone

The trip to Sardigna was more a family thing, arranged to avoid another Easter at home. Cycling was just a bonus. The choice of our destination there was quite simple. My wife was into chilling at a beach and my older son was into climbing - Cala Gonone seems to be...
