Brooks Waldman (cover shot rider) is a beloved part of the Lionhearters cycling from Venice to Paris right now.
Taking up road cycling seriously only 2 years ago, Brooks is obviously someone who commits to doing something well. Now at 79 years of age, he has taken on this incredible journey (one of our toughest!) and is conquering it on an e-bike (and his road bike when he feels like a change!). The first week saw him take on the Dolomites – conquering the Sella Ronda – an amazing challenging loop and one of Europe’s best which includes 4 huge Dolomite passes! Bring on the Austrian Alps, Tyrol, Bavaria,and France’s Alsace, Burgundy and Loire!!
Who would not love to do this? Who dares to think they are too old or not strong enough a cyclist to take on such an adventure?
