In a few short weeks, I will embark on one of my toughest cycling trips yet, Pico de las Nieves. The setting is the island of Gran Canaria, which lays just 100 km west of Morocco. The route rises from the tropical coast to above the clouds over the course of one long day. The gradient gets steeper (consistent double digit gradients) as the day goes on, making it a very difficult climb. I look forward to a challenging, beautiful, and rewarding ride.
