Very nicely produced book offering a menu of 50 great cycling climbs in Europe. The bulk of the climbs are located in the Alps and Pyrenees. There's a sprinkle of routes in the Vosges (Ballon d'Alsace), Appenines (Gran Sasso, Blockhaus) and in the southern Spanish sierras (Pico de Veleta, Calar Alto). And even four Belgian hills - De Muur, Koppenberg, Mur de Huy and La Redoute - that have garnered an outsized reputation in the spring classics. No climbs on British territory have been included.

Innostunut kirjoitustyyli ja upea kuvitus. Superlatiivit ja liioittelut hieman häiritsevä maneeri, mutta näistä huolimatta hienosti toteutettu kokonaisuus.

An amazing book looking at Europe's most astonishing cycle climbs, with jaw-dropping photographs by Pete Goding. A must buy for any cyclist or someone with an interest in the sport.

Very lovely book with great photographs and descriptions of the climbs and their histories. Definitely a coffee-table book rather than a sit-and-read-through. So what did I do with it?
