Epic cols on epic journeys… all of our Odysseys have a challenging climb or two, famous and not so famous. Here is one we are looking forward too next April in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco. The super gradual long and aptly Tiz n’Test! This is an optional climb from our spectacular hotel in the hills Domaine de la Roseraie. (a great place to return to after any ride!)
Isn’t history dead? Why do you think it’s important?
History helps us understand who we are, why we behave as we do, and why we live in the world that we do – the modern world that we have created. The past is not inhabited with strangers but our relatives – people just like us who are waiting to be discovered and hoping to be understood. All you’ve got to do is to look in the right places and to ask the right questions and it’ll change the way that you think about the past – and the present – forever.
