10,000 feet in 100 miles!
A 4-day tour of Wales with day 1 and 2 particularly sticking out! Day 1 was a 60 mile ride from Newport to Rhayader by passing Brecon Beacons and following day we climbed over 10,000 feet of elevation in 100 miles around Elan Valley. I wanted to give up a few times, especially when I came across a 25% gradient climb, but thankfully managed to complete it. Still I don’t think it’s enough to be confident about the Alps come summer.
