The North Race and The 5th Floor have this eye-candy of a video featuring cyclists climbing one of Scotland's toughest roads. You need to watch this just for how beautiful the video is put together.

Rising up from sea level to 2,054 ft in 6 miles, Bealach Na Bà is the 3rd highest paved road in Scotland. Bealach Na Bà is one of the few roads remaining that was engineered like those in the alps with tight hairpin turns and 20% grades so it was an easy decision when it came to choosing a location for this 5th Floor & The North Race collaboration ride.
