The first Podia Roadventure took place in the Tatra Mountains in June this year. Constantine Gerlach was one of the seven people who took part and as a professional photographer he did a stunning job in capturing the four memorable days.
There is no need to introduce Cycling Tips to anyone in the cycling world. We have always been big fans of the news, images and great content they bring to cyclists worldwide and when they approached us to feature on those pages, it was a proud moment.
On June 22nd of this year a group of like-minded cyclists gathered in the Polish city of Kraków. They wouldn’t stay their long as their final destination was further south in the Tatra Mountains where they would spend five days exploring the Polish/Slovakian borderlands.
The mountain seems no more a soulless thing, But rather as a shape of ancient fear, In darkness and the winds of Chaos born Amid the lordless heavens’ thundering A Presence crouched, enormous and austere, Before whose feet the mighty waters mourn.
We recently wrote an article about the origins of Podia and cycling in Eastern Europe for Simpson Magazine. If you are interested in finding out more about how and why Podia was started, head to their website and order yourself a copy. It’s a rather nice mag!
Diego Caccia, former Italian pro, friend and contributor to the Podia blog (some of his previous posts are here, here and here) showed us how he folds his jersey. We thought it was too good not to share it.
