Ancient history, mountaineering, cycling and other outside adventures

Cycling, Mountaineering and Altitude

I’ve been interested for some time in the comparison between competitive cycling and mountaineering. I smiled, you can imagine, when I received my latest copy of Velo (formerly known as Velonews, I like the old name better) which is called the “Altitude Issue.” This is in anticipation of the first USA Procycling challenge, the stage race in Colorado coming up later this month.

Nice job Velo, lots of good reading in here. Plenty of comparisons, not made directly in the issue, which can be drawn. More anon.
