Here are a few videos to show you a glimpse of this EPIC ride. The raw footage is mainly captured from a GoPro attached to my bike.
In 2014, the mHealth Grand Tour went from Barcelona to Vienna. It was over 2,300km long with over 33,000m of ascent and included 15 days riding. The longest day was over 180km and the ‘hardest’ included nearly 4,000m of ascent including the highest paved road in the Alps. We visited four countries on route.
A large number of the riders that took part in the Tour had Diabetes. It was an opportunity for riders with diabetes to demonstrate how riders with diabetes could participate (and enjoy!) a challenging endurance event.
Here is another one..
Another one ..you should enjoy these with music on and you may want to save these for watching during your indoor training sessions.
Enjoy the ride through the streets of Padua where once Romeo and Juliet lived!
The cobbled streets were a joy to ride!
These videos also depict the side effects of adopting a healthy and active lifestyle. The positivity in my mind has increased many folds. I invite all of you to set a goal and participate in such a challenge in your lives.
