In keeping with its menacing name, Beartooth Pass in Montana will rip your legs to shreds. You can ride it for yourself, along with three tough local cyclists in this Epic Rides Virtual Ride DVD Beartooth Pass. It's a one way ride from the bottom straight to the top, 14.3 miles and 3,500 vertical feet later. On the way, you'll be able to appreciate scenic views across the Beartooth Mountains as if you were right there alongside the riders instead of at home in the comforts of your own home.
Epic Rides DVD footage is filmed with 16:9 widescreen format in mind so the video quality will be at its best on your flatscreen TV. Along with the footage of the ride, you get an onscreen dashboard that gives you a few bits of essential information -- a training zone indicator, average grade, a countdown timer, and a terrain profile. The dashboard doesn't distract you from the ride, and it gives you just enough info to shape your workout to mirror what the riders who actually rode the climb up Beartooth Pass experienced.
The Virtual Rides DVD Beartooth Pass offers a downloadable route map from MapMyRide that you can use to ride the exact route if you're ever in the area. You'll also be able to download a training guide to get the most of your workout. If you train with a powermeter of some sort, Epic Rides even offers downloadable power profiles that you can use to attempt to match the riders in the program watt for watt. 60 minutes. Difficulty: Very hard.
