Backstory: How an inGamba guest made the cover of peloton’s photo annual

December 18th, 2013


Heidi Swift is a freelance writer and photographer, Editor at Large for peloton magazine, author of the monthly “Joy Ride” column for Bicycling magazine and frequent inGamba guest. This fall, she joined us in Lecchi to witness the spectacle of l’Eroica and though she originally planned to ride the route, she eventually opted to tag along as a passenger in the inGamba support van to make photos instead. At the time we couldn’t help but call her out for this conveniently comfortable decision, but we’re glad she made it as one of her l’Eroica images now graces the cover of the 2014 peloton magazine photo annual. Here she shares a bit of the backstory.

L’Eroica – a ride like nothing else

Glue. Gravel. 28mm hand-sewn tires. Downtube shifters. Squealing brakes, that perfectly pitch-black nothingness that you only find right before dawn, still draped over the Italian countryside, is being pulled back slowly by the coming day. An old, thick chain elicits a rich, rhythmic rattle from the yellowed steel of a Regina. A lot’s changed since it was new. You can almost count the teeth while it spins. You’re over-geared, and perhaps a little over-excited. Don’t worry. There’s only 200km to go.

Missing Home

June 20th, 2013

I often miss Chianti when I am home. And often miss home when I am away. I think that comes from being born Portuguese. A melancholy and yearning for things that we can’t have. Read More
