July 25th, 2022 - Staff Writer

Have you ever wondered how the pros fuel for a time trial? Is it the same as a road ride, or a triathlon? Maybe you’re looking to improve your own training with some TT efforts, or perhaps you’re building up to a triathlon. In the past we’ve covered efficient fueling for cycling, but we wanted to do a bit of a deep dive into a slightly different style of competition, and so we reached out to the scientists at Equipe Enervit for some advice.

The N2: Portugal’s answer to Route 66

June 17th, 2022 - Miguel Andrade

The Estrada Nacional 2, or N2, is often called the Route 66 of Portugal. And, like the emblematic US highway, this road defines a nation. Built in 1945 to carry goods and people the length of the country, it was once a backbone of the Portuguese road system. It is now the longest continuous road in Portugal crossing four mountain ranges, 11 rivers and 29 municipalities.

GUEST OPINION: Love letters to Lecchi

May 10th, 2022 - Staff Writer

I’m not an avid cyclist. In fact, I got a beautiful bike as a birthday present last June, and prior to my experience with inGamba, I had only ridden in the south of the Netherlands, where I live. 

As soon as I arrived at Lecchi, however, I knew it was going to be special. The beautiful little village of Lecchi looks like a romantic Italian film scene; the warm welcome we received from the girls and boys of inGamba immediately made us feel very welcome, and the first dinner at Paolo’s place was magnificent.

A Postcard from Patagonia

May 6th, 2022 - Katie Bolling

As soon as I arrived in San Martin de los Andes, Manuel handed me the day’s itinerary, and I knew right away this trip was going to be special. It included just three events: Lunch, aperitivo, and dinner. It’s the kind of schedule that’s easy to get used to. 

The next 14 days went by like a dream, traveling by boat and prop plane deep into Patagonia to explore the incredible cycling and unique cuisine that makes Argentina such a special destination. And finishing the adventure off with a stay on Francis Mallmann’s private island was the icing on the cake. After a week of phenomenal gravel riding, it was great to relax and focus hard on the Mangia and Beve parts of inGamba’s motto.

Why we love the food in Alentejo

April 22nd, 2022 - Miguel Andrade

Our love affair with Alentejo began the second we first laid eyes on it. Maybe it was because of the cork trees, misshapen as scarecrows, or the whitewashed villages that popped up like icebergs off-course, or the medieval castle towns that cling to mountainous outcrops of granite. Or more likely, it was the food. We fell hard for pão, the crisp-crusted, chewy country bread that’s the foundation of so many of Alentejo’s dishes; the fruity olive oil; the nutty sheep cheeses; the tomatoes.

February 28th, 2022 - Staff Writer

We love our custom Dogma F fleet, but there is no doubt that Pinarello’s latest update to their MyWay design platform is seriously cool. We’ve always known that the care and skill that goes into the finish of every Pinarello was second to none, but when we came across this video we knew we had to share so that you could appreciate the craftsmanship, too.
