Twice As Tough

To celebrate the centenary of the Col du Tourmalet’s inclusion in the Tour de France, Rapha put together a tribute ride to the original stage: The 1910 Challenge. Just for a little perspective this ride is basically twice the length and three times the climbing of the Midnight Century ride I completed Sunday! Incredible ride and video. I can barely imagine doing this with modern equipment, the original cyclists were serious strongmen.
