There’s Mountain Biking and then there’s Bike-Mountaineering

Now riding off road is my thing, although I have to admit that I’m totally rubbish at it.  That does not really matter though as it is the enjoyment, friendship, getting away from it all feelings that I love.  Tootling about the Dales is one thing of course but this beautiful short film  captures German riders Harold Philipp and Martin Falkner hauling (literally) their bikes up Monte Cevedale in Italy.  That’s 3,769m ! before carving their way back down.  One can only dream.
