Berruti. When Luciano Berruti talks about the history of cycling you can smell the dust of the white roads where cycling created its myth. That’s not only about bicycles, riders and races but it’s a true love and a way of life.
I love Flanders - it’s a special place for me. My love for the area pales next to some though - particularly @hbstache. The man loves it, he has tshirts, socks, glasses, stickers, bottles, cycling kit, even a flag - all adorned with the unforgettable: Belgian The F*ck Up. I woke up this morning to a happy email: @hbstache and @mrshbstache just won two all expense paid trips to the Ronde van Vlaanderen next year at Interbike. That’s worth smiling about - for me at least.
AWOL on the magnificent Goddess of Provence, the Mont Ventoux (1909m) is one of the most epic climbs of the world, maybe only beaten by L’Alpe d’Huez. Altough not the first AWOL up there, Erik of team AWOL did it last year, we are stoked to see another. Follow Pedalours on Instagram for more inspirationl.
