About Belén Castelló (belletoscan)

For the longest time I thought bikes were only for racing, but when living in the Netherlands, I realised that bikes could also be for commuting. Now, I’ve discovered my favourite way of using bikes: for travelling!

      I'm in Valencia for the weekend, as Horacio (Belén's brother) bought one of my old bikes and, for the lack of an affordable shipment option, I decided to bring it over myself.

      

      Horacio is just starting out with riding bikes but he wanted to have a better bike to use around town, for commuting and for

    1. Winter in Valencia means that you have to leave the house with a jacket, although it is better to put your t-shirt underneath in case the sun comes out! It is also the best time of the year to go hiking because you avoid high temperatures.

      

      This time, we took the car to the town of Fanzara in Castellón

    1. It's my fourth time visiting the Dolomites and I just love it every time I'm there. The monumental rock formations, characteristic of the area, make the scenery so impressive at every turn. Especially in the autumn when all the trees have metamorphosed into their yellow, orange and reddish tones.

    1. Day 7, the final day of our Dolomites e-bikepacking trip. Waking up in the peaceful spot we'd chosen to camp out in, we felt rested and ready for the last kilometers towards the first available train station.

      

      Besides reaching the station before noon, another goal was to find a cafe for breakfast. In the

    1. Day 6 of our Dolomites e-bikepacking trip! One for the books, thanks to the incredible colors of the forests between Misurina and Auronzo di Cadore.

      

      There's a fantastic bike lane between these two towns, almost fully on gravel, leading you easily and enjoyably down the mountains. The forests we passed
