This book of twenty cycling climbs from across Europe, the USA and South America offers a glimpse into the allure of reaching the high mountains by bike. Each climb includes a dedicated drawing by Nigel Peake and a description of the climb, including details of its height, length and gradient. Notorious stories of each climb’s inclusion in the great cycling races, such as the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France, are also told, as well as tips for following in the tyre tracks of cycle racing’s stars and taking these monsters on yourself.
