MagneticDays incremental threshold test
In all camps the incremental threshold test is provided for free. MagneticDays is the 100% Made in Tuscany brand born in 2012 from an idea by Gobat, the engineering branch of O.R.F. Srl developed with the mission to create new innovative solutions in the field of sports equipment for indoor cycling training, overcoming the technical limits of the classic training rollers on the market: weight, noise and bulk. After 5 years of research and development in the Val di Chiana in Arezzo, JARVIS was born, the first platform for indoor training with a scientific approach where theory and practice come together to give the user a unique 360-degree experience. Excellence, design, quality, silence, compactness and high Italian technology are the pluses of this innovative product dedicated to all those people who want to keep fit by pedaling indoors without getting bored, but also to those who want to get more important results by bike through training quality.

Healthy Eating
We are Italian, cooking and feeling good are deeply rooted in our culture. For this we take care of the feeding during the Vanotti Cycle Camp with great care: first for the choice of dishes suitable for sports activities, then for the times that are necessarily elastic and linked to training sessions, lastly because as good Italians we appreciate the good Mediterranean cuisine, characteristic of our culinary excellence: healthy, natural and tasty. Without forgetting that food is one of the training areas of the Camp, so that our guests can learn to feed themselves in the most suitable way to maintain physical fitness and promote athleticism: diet as an ability to know how to feed properly in function of the expected results, not as an end in itself.

Selected Structures
A Camp with Vanotti must be an experience to remember even for the hotel: the structures we work with and that we have chosen for our activities are absolutely dedicated to us cyclists
Those who go by bike need special assistance and services, related to sports activities and the quality of Italian hospitality. These are structures that have been operating for years with cyclists, they often also organize projects to accompany and discover the territory internally, they know and live the problems of organizing and managing these activities every day. Almost all of them have a Bike Room suitable for safely storing bikes, where a storage and repair corner is ready for small cleaning and maintenance work on your vehicle. In many places it is also possible to rent a bike, always choosing among models of great quality prestige and performance.

Bergamo is still one of the five Italian cities, along with Padua, Ferrara, Lucca and Grosseto, whose historic center has been completely surrounded by the Venetian walls (declared in 2017 by UNESCO World Heritage Site), which have kept the their original appearance over the centuries. In 2017 Bergamo and its province are part of the "European Region of Gastronomy-Eastern Lombardy", together with the provinces of Mantua, Brescia and Cremona.

Bergamo is located in the piedmont area, halfway between the Brembo and Serio rivers. The main watercourse of the city is the Morla torrent which flows with a sinusoidal course and for long stretches, buried below roads and parking lots. In addition, the city is crossed longitudinally by a system of irrigation ditches that takes the waters of the Serio river for irrigation purposes and, once upon a time, to operate mills and spinning wheels. Il Canto Alto is the first mountain of the Orobie Prealps that rises close to the city it is located in the territory of Sorisole, and was a safe haven for the population during the world wars. The ancient nucleus of the city is founded precisely on a system of hills, an extreme offshoot of the Orobian pre-Alps before the plain.
