“I tried to think about an ideal road day trip to visualise what I would appreciate the most. I thought it would be an unexpected one, beginning with fresh sunlight on an empty road, with wonderful curves of different geometric characteristics, slopes, and different levels of difficulty.
The roads would be lined with charming landscapes, painted mountains and pastel oceans, the sunlight would scatter on the forest soil and birds would be playing with the clouds in an endless sky. At a corner I would discover an old abandoned church or temple, an old infrastructure in the middle of nowhere, telling me in secret a bit of the history of people who have lived there. In the evening I would catch the sunset, somewhere lost, alone with my bike.
I would then ride to a village or a small city where I would try a regional culinary speciality and meet some other lost souls, with whom I would share smiles and talks.
I would then set-up my tent on a cliff, maybe, admire the stars and finally dive into my sleeping bag.”
