The Passo dello Stelvio is one of the highest paved mountain passes in all of Europe. Located in the Italian Alps, it is a popular challenge for cyclists to climb, and then fly down the 2770 meter (9088 feet) route.
This morning, the Adventure Journal posted a fantastic video of rider Patrick Seabase taking on the pass and in grand style. Seabase went up, and down, the mountain on a fixed gear bike that didn’t have any breaks. Quite an accomplishment really, and while watching the video, you can almost feel your legs muscles aching on the climb, and your heart pounding on the descent. Oh, and the scenery is pretty spectacular too! Enjoy!
