Elevation Gain
This week's aspirational ride means heading over to Italy to take on the Blockhaus; a climb steeped in cycling history, first tackled in the Giro d'Italia back in 1967 where a youthful Eddy Merckx was first to cross the line.

The summit can be reached by taking three different routes, but the climb up via Pretora is the "percorso della giornata" (or route of the day to you and me) which we've found to be the most "tame" way to summit, with hybrid bikes and novice cyclists regularly making their way up to the top. Take in the striking views of the coast from 2068m above before descending your way back to your hotel, or getting ready to take on the other two routes to the top.

Thanks to Kevin from Giro D'Abruzzo for the route, head over to their site to get your trip booked for later this year.
