The mountains are grouped by range, with the major climbs in each range getting 2 full pages each, plus a number of lesser climbs in each range get about half a page each.
They're all here - Alpe d'Huez, Ventoux, Izoard, Telegraphe, Galibier, Madeleine, Colombier, Peyresourde. Tourmalet, Marie Blanque, Portet d'Aspet, Luz-Ardiden, etc, etc...
What to expect from each climb, how to tackle each one. Distances, heights and gradients... Local interest and tourism info. Plus classic 'Tour' folklore and titbits about each climb.
It also makes a great coffee table book,looks great and visitors to the house do pick it up and browse through it,even my friends who aren't into cycling but it gives me lots of kudos with my pals who are into cycling,4 of us are now in the process of booking a training session next year to the Pyrenees,after reading through it.
For any keen cyclist's it gives you a wide range of climbs on offer,not just the famous and frequent climbs used in the tour,some of the lesser known one's are fascinating,after reading it,you realise the Tour is THE greatest cycling event on earth.
