Ciao and welcome to my website! I live on the sunny island of Sicily in the province of Palermo and I love cycling! I did many kilometers on my MTB (Cannondale F4) before I bought my first road bike, a Ridley Excalibur. I rode about 25,000 km on that bike before I decided it was time for a high end bike. So I ordered a Ridley Helium SL which arrived in February of 2013.
I was able to become a decent cyclist just by riding many kilometers and doing lots of climbing, but I realized I needed some help to become a better cyclist. So I contacted the US based Rob Grissom and asked him to be my coach. I’ve worked with him for a year and I’m very pleased with the results. On my blog you’ll find several articles about my training with Rob, so if you are planning on working with a coach, then you might like to read these particular blog posts. In the autumn of 2016 I will be working with a different coach, so stay tuned for updates.
I work as a cycling guide and I also organize cycling holidays for (small) groups. So if you are looking for a nice, sunny location to go and cycle with your buddies, or if you’d like me to be your guide, then drop me a line! If you don’t bring your own bike(s), I can organize good quality road (both alu and carbon) bikes and mountain bikes. Use this form if you’d like to receive a quote for a rental bike.
If you’re looking for holiday accommodation in the area of the Golfo di Castellammare, please check out the on-Sicily website, where you’ll find lots of apartments and holiday homes.
That’s it for now, you’ll read more about me and my love for cycling in my blog posts.
Saluti dalla bella Sicilia!
