New week and a new issue of our newsletter is here with the latest news and the articles we feel interesting.
Kasia is the new Gravel World Champion!
We couldn’t be happier for her! Sadly we could not watch it live.
When we all thought that women cycling starting to be more present everywhere (still a lot to do), the UCI decided to not broadcast the live Women Gravel World Championship race.
How sad is this… and more in gravel, that for who practice this sport is the cycling discipline that has more equality, normally in the gravel races, men and women start together, make the same circuit and have the same prize at the end.
We are so happy for Kasia and for all of our friends who took place in the worlds!

The BiciBús: how Barcelona got kids cycling safely to school – and loving it!
In the city’s fast-moving traffic, the bicibús (bike bus) provides sanctuary for cycling children – and turns the school run into a party
The bus leaves Monday to Friday at 8.30am sharp outside the Sant Antoni market in Barcelona’s Eixample district, but this is no ordinary vehicle; it has hundreds of wheels, dozens of drivers – and no passengers. This is the Barcelona bicibús, the fun, safe mode of transport that makes going to school feel like a party.
