If you've been reading Adventure Cyclist magazine closely this year, you may have noticed a lot of articles centering on Italy. Our December/January issue looked at some EuroVelo route creation in Italy, our magazine editor, Mike Deme, did a two part series on his experience climbing some of the country's legendary mountain passes, and our latest issue featured a trip through Northern Italy by Tom Robertson.
Bicycling culture is alive and well in Italy, but if you can't make the trip overseas, maybe you can bring some of that culture to your door. Albabici is a distributor that brings Italian cycling goods and services to the U.S. market. Some of their brands include Selle SMP saddles, Nalini apparel, and Limar helmets and eyewear. They are also the distributor of Scicon bags, one of which I was able to check out earlier this year.
It's been two months since I reviewed the Scicon Aerocomfort 2.0 bike bag, and it remains my favorite system for packing a bike for airline travel. It's designed to provide a high level of protection, all while taking under 15 minutes to pack a bike. Maybe the best feature of this bag is that it could be yours!
After putting it through it's paces, we've been given the green light to get this bag into the hands of an adventure cyclist. You can enter to win by taking one of these three actions by 5:30pm MST on Sunday, August 9, 2016:
Get your hands on one of the best bike bags out there, and check out our full review of the Scicon Aerocomfort 2.0.
