The Road to Mont-Blanc





A 1000km non-stop journey across the Dolomites, Eastern Alps and Swiss Alps.

Exploration is as much about overcoming the unknown challenges of the road ahead as it is about learning of one's own physical and mental capabilities. On August 4th 2014 Mike Cotty faced the longest and hardest ride of his life, a personal challenge to see if it's possible to cycle over 1,000km and 21 mountains non-stop across the Dolomites, Eastern Alps and Swiss Alps from Conegliano, Italy, to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France. Thunderstorms during the darkest depths of the night, a bitter cold dawn on the Passo dello Stelvio, punishing headwinds and the will to overcome adversity and sleep deprivation from over 50 hours on the bike and 21,250 metres of elevation make this journey an inspiring test of human reserve.



So a few km’s and a few climbs . . . .

Perhaps best of all, this was all achieved on a budget of NZ$21,000. The Tiny House was constructed on his parents property, and will soon be moved to a friends property in Bethells Beach in Auckland.

40th Anniversary Allez



It all started on the bike. 40 years ago Specialized was born from humble beginnings complete with a handwritten catalog and parts delivered via bicycle. What started then is what keeps us looking forward today – providing all riders with real performance advantages. To celebrate 40 years of life on two wheels we’ve teamed up with an old friend.
Mark DiNucci was one of the original Specialized frame designers and his bikes are still winning global recognition today. Together with Specialized, Mark has created an entirely new and exclusive 40th Anniversary Allez frame – in steel. Far from just a retro road bike, every tube, lug, and braze on has been completely reexamined through fresh eyes and carries the experience of our last 40 years of innovation. It’s a bike that carries all the inherent ride qualities of steel coupled with the type of modern technological advances that push it into an entirely new category. It’s the culmination of 40 years of bike building filtered down into the very best steel bike we’ve ever made. In a special nod to where it all began, the 40th Anniversary Allez frame is being built in the very factory that was responsible for the first Specialized Stumpjumper.
Limited to just 74 frames worldwide, the 40th Anniversary Allez is more than just a bike. Included with every kit is a limited edition Merino wool sweater, winter and summer cycling caps, exclusive leather S-Works Toupe saddle with matching leather saddle bag, and matching leather bar wrap to top it all off. Each one of these extremely limited pieces was designed and constructed to the same high standard of quality as the frame itself and were conceived to both compliment and highlight this very special project. The 40th Anniversary Allez is a complete package that bridges the past and present of the Specialized brand. Additionally, with all proceeds earned from the sale being donated to World Bicycle Relief, it’s a perfect way to ensure the future of bikes continues to look stronger than ever.


World Bicycle Relief is a nonprofit organization mobilizing people through the Power of Bicycles. They envision a world where distance is no longer a barrier to education, healthcare and economic opportunity. Compared to walking, bicycles increase carrying capacity and accessible travel distance while decreasing commute time. Since 2005, World Bicycle Relief has provided more than 195,000 specially designed, locally assembled Buffalo bicycles to disaster survivors, students, healthcare workers, and entrepreneurs. They’ve also trained more than 950 field mechanics to ensure access to qualified maintenance and spare parts.
Through their Bicycles for Educational Empowerment Program (BEEP) WBR provides Buffalo bicycles to rural students (70% girls), teachers and school volunteers to improve access to education. A two-year study of their work found a 28% increase in attendance and 58% increase in academic performance for students with bikes. 69% of students reported feeling safer while commuting to school. Each bicycle represents a life-changing new beginning for students, families and communities.
Through this exciting partnership, we hope to mobilize over 500 rural students with Buffalo bicycles to access education. Place your order now and join the movement.
