Until taking on this challenge, we were mostly non- or occasional cyclists. From 10-15 September we took on one of Europe’s most iconic cycle routes: coast-to-coast from the Atlantic to the Med, along the Pyrenees.
In under a week, we covered a daily average of 80 miles with a total of over 13.5km of vertical ascent – that’s 1.5 times the height of Everest – including some of the most fearsome climbs of the Tour de France, such as the world-famous, hors categorie Col de Tourmalet.
To say that this was out of our comfort zone is an understatement – and to add to the challenge the weather was awful! To complete this demanding 700 km ride, we trained hard: we put in an average of over 3,000km on the bike since the start of the year, climbing an average of about 45km in the process. But we needed to! You can view the detailed route here: this was not a challenge that we could cuff!
