Another view of the 10 in 10 Finale Ride....

Following on from the recent short video that I posted of the ride up from Lake Como to the church of the Madonna del Ghisallo here is another one...
This is the second half of the BBC film 'Ride of my Life - The story of the Bicycle' which was about Rob Penn and his search around the world for the very best components with which to build his dream bike... 
The film in it's entirety can be found on You Tube so if you have not seen it before it is certainly worth watching the complete film. 

The section that shows the area we will be cycling ten countries to ride in, can be found in this clip between minutes 08.30 -12.25.... The clip shows Rob riding the road along the shore of Lake Como and then the climb up to the little church, it also shows the church interior.
I first saw this film on television a few years ago and when I saw it I decided that one day I would ride from home to do the ride around the lake and then complete the climb to visit the church. 
As I mentioned in a previous post it was only when a rider that I met whilst out on a training ride mentioned it, that I felt that I had been given that extra push to move it up my bucket list....

This 10 in 10 ride is fantastic. The people you have riding with so far, even better. I loved the video. If I lived near you, I would be begging to tail along.

Thanks for the post!
