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

Back on the road, safer than ever

September 14th, 2020 - João Correia, inGamba founder

I’m happy to report that we’re in Sicily right now, restarting the season after what has been a difficult year. Our last trip was all the way back in February, and it’s incredible to think about how much the world has changed since then.

Meticulous hand hygiene and face masks are now a part of our daily routine, and we all know how important it is to follow social distancing guidelines. It can be an inconvenience at times, but not a stop sign. If we do things the right way, we can still get out there and enjoy the things we love most: The company of friends and family, good food, the great outdoors, even travel.

Laurens ten Dam on retirement and why he loves Tuscany

August 24th, 2020 - Colin O'Brien

During his long career on the World Tour, Laurens ten Dam became a fan favorite for a lot of reasons. For one, he was fast. Like top-10 at the Tour de France and Vuelta a España fast. But more than that, he was always one of the most likeable riders in the peloton, known for having time for fans and the press, and for never giving up, even after bad crashes. He was also a valued teammate and road captain, helping Tom Dumoulin to a memorable win at the Giro d’Italia in 2017. He was also an early adopter of social media – and one of the most followed athletes on Strava – allowing him to connect with a wide range of cycling fans all around the world.
