Here at Hells 500 and The Climbing Cyclist we’re all about the adventure of cycling. Sure, we might do the odd crazy ride from time to time, but underlying it all is a desire to ride nice roads, tackle great climbs, challenge ourselves and have fun in the process.
And what better way to achieve these goals than by tackling some of the biggest and best cycling climbs in the country.
Over the next five months we’ll be running a series of free group rides to help cyclists of all abilities conquer the Victorian Alps and complete Tourism North East’s 7 Peaks Alpine Ascent Challenge.
On paper, the challenge is simple: conquer Victoria’s seven biggest alpine peaks before the end of March. But in reality it’s never that easy. You mightn’t be familiar with the climbs, you might be reluctant to ride on your own, or maybe you think you’re not strong enough to get over the climbs. That’s where we come in.
If you’re committed to completing the climbs, we’re committed to helping you. We’ll be like a personal tour-guide, coach and motivational speaker, all in one. We’ve ridden all the climbs and we’ve got plenty of experience when it comes to long rides in the mountains.
We’ll let you know what to expect of the climbs, offer you climbing-related advice, encourage you to continue when you’re suffering and, ultimately, help you get through the climbs in one piece.
We've released the dates for our 7 Peaks Domestique Series rides. Please spread the word and if you're interested in coming along to some or all of the rides, please let us know by joining the relevant event pages on Facebook. For more information on the series, and to view the dates, please visit the hub site:http://theclimbingcyclist.com/the-7-peaks-domestique-series/
Given the ride distances and climbing required, these are best suited to a road bike. The Climbing Cyclist / Hells 500
