Video: The Ride of a Thousand Cols

We all have our own goals and challenges that we’ve set for ourselves, some more difficult than others. But when cyclist Phil Deeker sets a goal, he really aims high. In 2017, the 60-year old Deeker vowed to ride 1000 mountain cols in 100 days, which is the equivalent of climbing Everest 50 times over. This video takes us out onto the road with him to see what this challenge was all about, and why he would undertake it to begin with. Beautiful and inspiring, this is a wonderful clip that will certainly help you examine the things you are doing in your own life.
