Browsing: map

I like to start a new map every year as motivation to fill it up:…

It’s time to launch my 2009 big climbs map.

Call me stupid but I find it motivating to start each year with an empty map and try and fill it with rides.

Along with “L’Etape du Tour” – it is probably the most famous – and one of the the most challenging – Cyclosportive in France.

174 kilometres (108 miles) and 5,000 metres vertical ascent (16,400 feet)!

There may not be a better base in the French Alps for cycling than Barcelonnette.

It is literally surrounded by mountains looking to be climbed.

The route for the 2008 Paris-Nice was unveiled today.

Stage 4 will climb Mont Ventoux on the lessor known Malaucene side – but will only go as far as Mont Serein Ski Station.
