Climbing Monte Inici

Climbing Monte Inici

My Cannondale F4 had problems with the gearing and I mainly use my roadbike anyway, so I hadn’t touched the bike in ages. When a good friend of mine bought a new group for his mountain bike, I decided to buy his “old” XT group, so I could go for a ride on the mountain bike again. Yesterday I went to Monte Inici, a beautiful, rocky mountain near the coastal town of Castellammare del Golfo and took lots of pictures. Below you’ll find several of those pics, which will show you why I love cycling here!
