We are avid outdoor lovers: from mountaineering to surfing, from climbing to cycling. Driven by the strong desire to explore our abilities, distant countries and peoples, in 2014 we began a 6-year project that brought us to know the world: From seven hills to seven passes.
From 2014 to 2020 we drew a line long 60.000 kilometers (38.000 miles) on the map, cycling through 35 countries without ever returning home. The pandemic forced us to return to Italy, but from this interruption new projects related to the bicycle as a lifestyle were born.
BeCycling is the container of these projects: promotion of sustainable mobility, publication of articles related to travel on two wheels, and our BeCycling Tours, guided tours with which we want to educate and encourage people to travel slowly and consciously.
For this reason, in the summer of 2021, we decided to graduate as Trekking and Bike Touring Instructors to combine our passion with the right skills. We would like to make you travel and inspire you, but above all we want to make you the protagonist of the changes our planet needs to keep on striving.
Engineer by education, globetrotter by vocation. Moved by curiosity and obsessed with the pursuit of perfection. If he’s not pedalling, you’ll find him building or fixing something. He loves to set up his mobile workshop wherever he is, hanging his bike from a tree branch in a public park, or turning it upside down in a hotel room. Always up to date on the latest technological advances in the field of cycle travel and bicycles, after all, isn’t the bicycle the best expression of technology at the service of humans and nature?
Trained as a humanist, a professional in tourism and a naturalist in his spare time. She has always cultivated the desire to unite these three aspects of her life. With the world tour From 7 Hills to 7 Passes she finally fulfilled the dream of being on the move every day, sleeping every night in a different place, immersing herself in different languages, cultures and naturalistic landscapes that she had, until then, only seen in documentaries. Festina lente – “hurry up slowly” – the ancients said, and perhaps they were already thinking about the bicycle!
There is no happiness for him who does not travel, Rohita! Thus we have heard. Living in the society of men, the best man becomes a sinner; therefore, wander! The feet of the wanderer are like the flower, his soul is growing and reaping the fruit; and all his sins are destroyed by his fatigues in wandering; therefore, wander! The fortune of him who is sitting, sits; it rises when he rises; it sleeps when he sleeps; it moves when he moves. Therefore, wander Rohita!
