Mark will be participating in Le Cure 2023 and will attempt to cycle 438 kilometers and climb 8,831 vertical metres.
Some of my best experiences were as a kid on my Scwhinn single-gear Sting Ray. Didn't start road riding until 2006, riding with friends around N Colorado. Have done many three- to seven-day supported bike tours, which I like. Rode solo down the Oregon coast to San Francisco, which was awesome. Also did some fun self-supported MTB tours with friends in Utah canyon country.
Hmm... probably being on narrow dangerous roads with traffic.
I want to ride in the Alps! A friend of mine did it last year and said how great everyone was and how stunning (and difficult) the routes were.
