Ring a Qhubeka Bell for Bull
As part of the fundraising effort on this month’s HotChillee Pyrenees, Ride Captain Bull climbed the inconic Col du Tourmalet, the highest paved mountain pass in the French Pyrenees, on a 16kg, single speed Qhubeka bike!
The Col du Tourmalet, and it’s Giant will be familiar to many of you, as it is the most used mountain pass of the Tour de France with last year’s stage 20 finish being it’s 86th appearance since 1910.
With an average gradient of 7.4% for 19 km, maxing out at an eyewatering 13% in some places, it certainly wasn’t easy, but we were with him every step of the way, ringing our Qhubeka cow bells; a sound that anyone who has ventured into the Pyrenees will be familiar with. There’s still plenty of time to donate and help us beat our 100 bike target by even more!
