Teaser training video: cycling in Sicily, riding with Don Bici

Teaser training video: cycling in Sicily, riding with Don Bici

The RLV Sicily – Don Bici is now available! Buy it here.

I’ve been tweeting about Jaap Wagenvoort gfe (GoPro filmmaker extraordinaire 🙂 ) and myself filming in Sicily for the upcoming (Tacx compatible) Real Life Videos.

We are working on the following titles:

  1. Bike ride to the medieval town of Erice (*)
  2. The Bosco di Alcamo climb
  3. Riding with Don Bici

(*) Shorter versions, to the temple of Segesta or the Garibaldi monument at Pianto Romano, will also be available.

In the RLV “Riding with Don Bici” we’ll be taking you on a ride through the towns of Balestrate and Trappeto to the climb of Carini and the descent at Montelepre. After this warming up ride with me, I’ll leave you to finish the ride on your own. Expect a lovely climb to the Santuario di Romitello and the antenna on the top of the mountain (highest gradient 15%).

The first part including the climb at Carini and the descent at Montelepre is a route I take most of the times when I work as a cycling guide. It’s a beautiful route with lovely (sea) views and a nice climb. You can check out the route here.

To give you an idea of what this last RLV is going to look like, Jaap was kind enough to make a short teaser. So without further ado, here it is:

Obviously I’ll keep you all posted about the release date of the RLV’s and I’ll post some behind the scenes pics on my blog. In the meantime, check out the other RLV’s Jaap has made: website Jaap Wagenvoort

  1. Nice, Don!

    But, did you really write ‘a lovely climb’ to the Santuario di Romitello and the antenna on the top of the mountain??

    At least in my memory those last 3 km came closer to pure horror! 🙂 But you’re right as well – it was quite nice to conquer the mountain 😉

    • Thanks! Well it was a lovely climb, wasn’t it…? Great views and a nice stretch of 15% 😉 Looking forward to seeing how that feels on the Tacx…!
