The first Saturday in September will host the fifth Adelaide Dirty Dozen. The ride has grown rapidly as word spread about the savagery served up. Adelaide is spoilt with excellent climbing but no community event has dared to punish participants like this one.
There are two roads that lead to the summit of Mount Donna Buang, and Brendan Edwards recently headed out to the Yarra Valley to climb the lesser known of the two roads through the stunning Don Valley.
Today Mike Cotty brings you the Col de la Bonette. At just over 2,800m it's one of the true monsters of the French Alps. This climb is awe inspiring, beautiful and tough. This one is well worth a read.
At La Velocita we love to ride. We have been approached by Rapid Ascent to participate in their new challenge race called the “Vertical K Mt Donna Buang” on November 29th and Brendan Edwards has previewed this amazing event.
This week we are featuring the Col d’Aspin. Not the hardest, highest or toughest… it’s the perfect place to start to find your mountain legs while experiencing fantastic views and ticking off an iconic name.
