We do not come to conquer mountains, we come to meet them. They will always be greater than us. There will always be another one to climb. We often give animalistic adjectives to climbs in order to ‘honour’ them; beast, brutal, savage. Those who ‘conquer’ them are praised as being ‘animals’ or ‘machines’. I can’t relate to any of this. I neither seek to smash a climb nor trash myself. Quite the contrary: I seek to reach the top feeling that I have ridden well, feel strong and can look forward to the next one. I focus on forgetting myself: absorbing myself in the smells, the light, the views, and my own sensations. It’s all part of an incessant dialogue between myself and my surroundings. I’m a romantic, albeit a very stubborn one. I’m in love with the beauty of the climb and the places that it takes us. Moments of liberating happiness only occur when one is locked into the present moment. Digging deep into one’s own reserves helps us to do that.

This was a trip for experienced, well-trained cyclists only: a very significant challenge, not to be taken lightly. It was extremely well organised and supported by Phil Deeker and his team. We cycled over 100 cols in about 90 hours of cycling, covering 1,850km and climbing 37,700m of elevation in ten days, with one rest day in the middle. The hotels were mostly 2*, adequate for the purpose. Food was plentiful and excellent. Corsica is a magnificent destination for cycling, with hundreds of kilometres of quiet roads, mostly in good to excellent condition, with some nasty surprises meaning local knowledge is important. Congratulations and thanks to Phil and team for an outstanding event. I would not hesitate to repeat it.

Thanks for taking the time to send in your comments Marvin. It was a pleasure to meet you and I am glad that you enjoyed the experience. Best of luck with your own events. I am sure our roads will cross again somewhere :)) Regards, PhilD
