Le Marche Good base for cycling

Le Marche Good base for cycling | Health and Fitness |

As you may know, Le Marche is characterized by alternating ridges and river valleys descending from the Apennines to the sea. There is a coastal band, which is narrow in places and fairly wide in other places. This band is rather densely populated and more or less industrialized. Then there is a band of foothills, with small walled hill towns and farmland, and, finally the mountainous zone. The best cycling is found in the foothills, where the ridges aren't so high that you would have long climbs to go from one valley to another, and where there are lots of small roads without a lot of vehicle traffic.
Pesaro, Gabbice Mare, the park of Monte San Bartolo, inland from Fano, Fossombrone, Monterado or Mondavio, Corinaldo, Barbara, or Castelleone di Suasa, Belvedere Ostrense Morro d'Alba and San Marcello, the regional park of Monte Conero, Osimo, Offagna, Castelfidardo, upper Potenza river valley, Matelica . 
Here are two web sites, in Italian, with advice about cycling itineraries in the province of Pesaro: ; ;
Both have itinerary maps, which should be understandable without translation.
Here is a very complete list of bike itineraries for all the provinces in Le Marche: ;

Belikin brought the Western Spirit Cycling Team out to the Cayo Welcome Center, in front of Thai Island, Saturday evening.  They also brought a beer tent, and tons of beer at a special price, and re-introduced their Sorrel Stout for the season.  Mistah Geeh was there mixing the great tunes.  Thanks, Belikin!

Cycling is the New Golf

Cycling is the New Golf | Health and Fitness |

TRADITIONALLY, business associates would get to know each other over a round of golf. But road cycling is fast catching up as the preferred way of networking for the modern professional. A growing number of corporate-sponsored charity bike rides and city cycle clubs are providing an ideal opportunity to talk shop with like-minded colleagues and clients while discussing different bike frames and tricky headwinds. Many believe cycling is better than golf for building lasting working relationships, or landing a new job, because it is less competitive.

“When you play golf with somebody you have to decide if you’re going to beat them, or let them beat you,” says Peter Murray, a former architect, journalist and chairman of the NLA centre dedicated to London’s built environment. “If they’re a client and you don’t want to beat them you have to sort of cheat in order to lose. That seems to me not a good way of doing things.”

THIS IS A MUST READ!  Wow. Next time you set up a business meeting or closing a deal, think CYCLING.  Best to know someone in a shared experience instead of lunch.
