Meet our new Swiss guide, Alain!

July 21st, 2021 - Staff Writer

Alain Rumpf is our man in Switzerland. After spending two decades working for the UCI, cycling’s governing body, he left the office world behind him to become a freelance cycling guide and content creator, working hard to spread the word about his homeland’s excellent potential as a cycling destination.

When we decided to explore the Swiss Alps, Alain was the first person we called because he and our founder João Correia go way back to João’s days as a pro rider. Alain also knows these mountains like the back of his hand, so we knew that he’d be a good fit for inGamba, and that he’d help us uncover the very best riding experience that this Alpine paradise had to offer. We caught up with him to find out more about his life on the bike.

THE NEW PINARELLO DOGMA F – A BEAUTIFUL BALANCING ACT

June 25th, 2021 - Staff Writer

As a bunch of former pro racers, mechanics, and lifelong cycling nerds, the inGamba crew has ridden more than its fair share of bikes, but for us, the Pinarello Dogma has always been the right choice, regardless of the occasion. 

There might have been contenders who were a little lighter on the scale, or more aero in a wind tunnel, but they invariably fell short in the real world. Pinarello never tried to undercut the competition on paper, they’re more interested in out-performing them on the road, where it matters.

InGamba goes to Switzerland!

May 27th, 2021 - Alain Rumpf

When you hear Switzerland, you might think Matterhorn, cheese and Heidi. Maybe cows or watches. But cycling? Probably not. Which is a shame, because this is a country is nestled in heart of the Alps, the same mountain range that’s home to the most famous climbs of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia. And the passes on the Swiss side are every bit as good, all they’re missing is is a little bit of racing history.

FUEL YOUR RIDE: CYCLING NUTRITION TIPS AND WHAT TO AVOID

March 31st, 2021

Staying fueled and hydrated is a vital part of cycling. If you’ve been riding long enough, you’ve no doubt had a bonk or two and it’s not an experience you’d wish on anyone. We’ve all been there: Miles from home, sapped of energy, and the last thing you want to do is keep pedaling, even though you know that there’s no other option.

A DIY Coast Ride: How one of the inGamba family refused to let Covid stop his early season ritual

February 28th, 2021 - Colin O'Brien

The Coast Ride has special place in the hearts of Californian cyclists. It’s the symbolic start to the riding season and the perfect cornerstone on which to build a great year.

In normal times it rolls every year, rain or shine. But like so many things, it just wasn’t possible during a pandemic. But for one particularly loyal devotee, the show had to go on, somehow, somewhere. There would be no adventure down the coast from the Bay Area to Santa Barbara and beyond, no long days rolling as part of a fast-paced peloton along California’s coastline. But there could still be adventure.

So when we heard that our friend Anthony Little was setting out to do his own thing (the “Fake Coast Ride” as he called it) that involved some seriously long days at a time when a lot of riders are still hibernating, we had to hit him up and ask: “Why?”

inGamba at Canyon Ranch, Arizona

February 1st, 2021 - Katie Bolling

Surrounded by beautiful desert plants and a welcoming field of Saguaro cactus, Canyon Ranch is the kind of place that immediately sets you at ease. As soon as I arrived, I sensed my pulse relaxing to a slower pace, more in tune with my surroundings. I was greeted at the door by a staff member who welcomed me like an old friend and I knew right away that Canyon Ranch would make for a wonderful addition to our calendar, offering a close-to-home oasis for the inGamba family.

PRETTY IN PINK: THE CASTELLI X INGAMBA MAGLIA ROSA

November 6th, 2020 - Staff Writer

Cycling has its fair share of eye-catching jerseys. There are polka dots for the best climber in the Tour de France, rainbow stripes for world champions, and leaders’ jerseys of all colors for stage races on every continent. But in terms of being truly iconic, two stand head and shoulders above the rest: the Tour’s maillot jaune and the Giro d’Italia’s maglia rosa
