Weekend Watch: Sophie Radcliffe's 'Alpine Coast to Coast'

8 countries, 8 highest peaks... #ridemore

This great film showcases the alpine coast-to-coast challenge, an incredible world’s first by adventurer Sophie Radcliffe. Her epic adventure started in Trieste, Italy, from there she proceeded to cycle across the 8 alpine countries and climb the highest peak in each; finishing in Monaco after 32 days.

"Cycling over mountains every day was the most empowering experience in my life. It's incredible to see what you can do with self-belief, drive and a thirst for adventure. the film has captured the beauty of the adventure perfectly." 

Sophie wore the adidas’ women’s Supernova Cycling range for the entirety of the cycling stages on the Alpine coast-to-coast, which I reviewed on the blog earlier this year (Link).
Taking inspiration from Sophie's Alpine Coast to Coast, I am hoping to undertake a similar challenge next September: riding the highest road passes in the 8 Alpine countries, over the course of two weeks. It won't quite compare with the feat of climbing the highest mountains on foot, but it would still be an epic adventure. I wish her the best with her future adventures, and hope I can make mine a reality too.
