Views: 935

Feared by all that visit Gran Canaria, Valley of the Tears leaves little to the imagination with its wickedly steep gradients, hostile landscapes and a seemingly endless road that’ll suck all the moisture from your body as you tackle its unforgiving slopes. Up for the challenge? Of course you are!

The Col Collective cycling kit is back online and available to purchase, so if you’re interested in supporting the channel (and looking like a rockstar out on the road) then take a look here.
