Alpine Coast to Coast - World First
The Alpine Coast to Coast was a world first expedition to climb to the summits of the highest mountains in each of the eight Alpine countries and cycle between them, starting on the coast of Italy and ending on the coast of France in Monaco.
Between 31st July and 31st August I cycled through and climbed to the highest points of Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, France, Italy and Monaco, covering 1669kms by bike, 141kms by foot and 45,530 metres of ascent. Charley was there every step of the way and we climbed these beautiful and challenging mountains together.
I was intrigued to see if I could keep going day in day out, reaching my limit or rock bottom and still finding a way to move forward. I used my body and mind to make myself like water and find a way through anything. It was incredible and I've learnt so much that I can't wait to start building on and sharing with you. Stay tuned for exciting things to come!
We were very lucky to be supported by Adidas and Haglofs on the Alpine Coast to Coast. Both companies showed huge support, enthusiasm and committment to our goals and aspirations for this project, in addition their kit was superb making us look and feel great in the mountains and keeping us safe in all weather conditions. Thank you very much from myself and Charley.
