Tacx Real life videos Sicily

In June Jaap Wagenvoort gfe (GoPro filmmaker extraordinaire 🙂 ) and myself have been filming in Sicily for three (Tacx compatible) Real Life Videos. I’ve already posted the trailers, but now I can present you the finished videos! Video 1: Sicily – Erice This RLV brings you to the archeologic park of Segesta, to the Garibaldi monument (Pianto Romano) and through a hilly landscape to the town of Valderice where the climb towards the Medieval town of Erice  (750 meters above sea level) starts. The Erice RLV includes 4 serious climbs totaling over 1.500m vertical ascent, but the maximum grade is ‘just’ 9%, so very trainer-friendly!

It was a lovely, sunny day (around 26°C) with only a few clouds in the sky. First I rode to the town of Alcamo and then followed the signs for the Bosco d’Alcamo. It’s a few kilometers to the top with an average gradient of around 7.5%. And with every hairpin, the view is getting better and better! Monte Bonifato is not that far from one of the other mountains in the area, Monte Inici, where I took lots of pics a few weeks ago. I love this part of the climb: great views and a lovely area with lots of trees and only a few houses. After a short 10/11% stretch I arrived at the bosco. On my way down I took a pic of a statue of Jesus in the sunlight. I rode through the town of Alcamo...
