Academy Strade Bianche, scuola di ciclismo su sterrati: il decalogo per neofiti (e non)

Scenari da Monferrato Casalese
Scenari da Monferrato Casalese

1 – Prima di ogni uscita su strade bianche, controllare sempre la propria bicicletta. Verificare l’integrità del telaio e soprattutto ogni sua parte “avvitata”, per controllare che le vibrazioni e le sollecitazioni di pedalare precedenti non abbiano provocato allentamenti a viti, dadi e serraggi

2 – Controllare che la sella non abbia subito variazioni di assetto (verso destra o sinistra; punta più in sù o più in giù) dovute a precedenti sollecitazioni, buche o insaccate da compressione

3 – Controllare la pressione di copertoni o tubolari

4 – Oliare cambio, catena e deragliatore. Lasciare penetrare bene l’olio, dopodichè asportare il superfluo con uno straccio onde evitare che la polvere si attacchi creando una poltiglia che provocherebbe problemi e malfunzionamento della trasmissione

Buon divertimento

Monferrato Casalese, a land of “sweet”, medieval castles, ancient legends , great wines , truffles and bicycles

Monferrato Casalese, a land of “sweet”, medieval castles, ancient legends , great wines , truffles and bicycles. Lu , a village with only a two-letter name but a rich tradition, is set atop one of the sweetest hills of this territory bounded by rivers Po and Tanaro , surrounded by Barbera and Grignolino vines, the red gold . Bike Comedy Cycling Club is located here.
Outside the farm you are immediately surrounded by a natural training ground which guarantees fun and pleasure to cyclists of all levels. Cuccaro ( village that claims to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus ) , Fubine , Altavilla , Grazzano Badoglio , Grana, Ottiglio , Frassinelle , Vignale, Lu : pretty villages and rolling hills with gentle slopes that “wink” to the less trained cyclists. But that , if “attacked” , are challenging even for the professional , with slopes close to or in excess of 15%. Country roads , away from traffic , used to make happy both nature enthusiast cyclists and “granfondistas.”

Lu is located at the center of a triangle which is magic and strategic for cycling enthusiasts . On the other side , a few kilometers away , there is Tortona. And a little further uphill Castellania , the village of Fausto Coppi , surrounded by the hills of Tortona where Fausto trained . To compete on the roads of Myth is a fascinating opportunity .

A short transfer by car from Lu finally opens the fantastic scenery of the Ligurian Apennines : the longest and most challenging climbs , with steep, at times brutal slopes that plunge on to the shores of the Sea of the Riviera di Ponente. Streets for all tastes and all needs.

Bike Comedy is meant for cycling but is linked to other sports rooted in the tradition of Monferrato : there are golf fields in the area which can be challenging for all handicaps , those who love hiking and horse riding will find endless routes that take you as far as the Alps. And the near Alpine summits are great gym for novice and experienced climbers

The ideal scenario for Bike Comedy , who lives in the name of sport and wellness and of an original and inseparable combination : cycling & cooking , cycling school and cooking school.
Try us: choose the date, we will think of everything else. Come and see!

Scuola Mtb e ciclismo su strade bianche, il decalogo: la scelta della prima bici eroica

Consigli per la prima scelta della bicicletta eroica…
– TELAIO – Consigliato acciaio o titanio, perché materiali più flessibili e dotati di una migliore torsione quindi in grado di consentire miglior confort per schiena, braccia e collo.
– RUOTE – Con raggi in acciao montate con camere in lattice e copertoni mezzo tubolare o tubolari.
– SEZIONE COPERTONE – 28/30 per consentire migliore confort galleggiamento e grip nei tratti più accidentati delle strade bianche.
– PRESSIONE GOMME – In base al proprio peso…e a cosa si utilizza. Il consiglio è di provare qualche uscita con pressioni differenti, così da trovare il compromesso migliore. Solitamente l’anteriore un po’ più sgonfio del posteriore, così da consentire migliore guidabilatà e tenuta in curva. Mentre il posteriore un po’ più gonfio evita pizzicature

Buon divertimento a tutti

Monferrato World Heritage Site thanks to UNESCO and to Aleramo

 Presumably born around 910, Aleramo was appointed by the Marquis Berengar II, whose daughter Gerberga was his second wife. According to a legend of the fourteenth century the Marquis Aleramo was born in Acqui Terme (more precisely, in the Abbey of Santa Giustina in Sezzadio) during a pilgrimage. Orphaned, Aleramo was hired in the imperial army and went to the court of Emperor Otto I. There, he met Alasia, daughter of the Emperor, and the two fell in love. Unable to report the matter to His Majesty, fearing a refusal to the marriage, the lovers fled to the homelands of Aleramo. Here, however, he could not live without fighting again, and re-entered the army in secret.

When the Emperor Otto became aware of it, he wanted to meet the young brave and forgave the two lovers. In a fit of generosity, he granted Aleramo so much land he had managed to ride across without stopping. The territory that he rode across is now Monferrato, whose name derives from mun (brick) and frà (shoe), ie the bricks used to shoe the horses that Aleramo, as evidence of having traveled across such territories, had thrown behind himself. However, there are several variations of the legend, such as the one according to which Aleramo obtained the territory that he could ride across in three days and three nights, and that the name Monferrato comes from having used a brick (MON) as a hammer, to shoe the horse that had lost a shoe (RES) during the race.

It’s hard to say which one is Aleramo’s true story, and what is legend. For sure, he is one of the most mysterious, fascinating and unknown characters of history. The remains of Aleramo rest today in the parish of Grazzano Badoglio

Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato (Italy) covers five distinct wine-growing areas with outstanding landscapes and the Castle of Cavour, an emblematic name both in the development of vineyards and in Italian history. It is located in the southern part of Piedmont, between the Po River and the Ligurian Appenines, and encompasses the whole range of technical and economic processes relating to the winegrowing and wine making that has characterized the region for centuries. Vine pollen has been found in the area dating from the 5th century BC, when Piedmont was a place of contact and trade between the Etruscans and the Celts; Etruscan and Celtic words , particularly wine-related ones, are still found in the local dialect. During the Roman Empire, Pliny the Elder mentions the Piedmont region as being one of the most favourable for growing vines in ancient Italy; Strabo mentions its barrels
