It’s taken five years and more than 20 videos, but we’re proud to release our first ‘not that hard’ (we can’t bring ourselves to say ‘easy’) video. Produced in collaboration with The Col Collective, creators of the world’s finest videos on famous cycling mountains, this 90 minute video takes you on a sweeping and dramatic tour through the Dolomite mountains of Northern Italy. Following legendary endurance cyclist Mike Cotty, you’ll climb amazing mountains like the Monte Grappa, Tre Cime di Lavoredo, Passo delle Erbe and Passo Manghen. You’ll even pop over to Austria to scale the fearsome heights of the Grossglockner. Featuring local insights from Mike and the Minions, as well as a killer soundtrack and stunning scenery, you’ll be planning your next trip to the mountains even before you climb off the bike.


The Workout

With a workout designed by Sir Neal Henderson, KoS of Apex Coaching, To Get to the Other Side features varying efforts and cadences. Aside from a couple of brief leg-openers, you’ll spend the entire workout just below threshold, making it a perfect session for base building or tempo rides between your regular Sufferfest sessions.
