Excellent 'Tour' companion
on 24 July 2014
Fantastic book for everyone from the casual TV viewer, through to experienced cycle tourists.
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.
