Hello !

My following video is about a hardly known climb in Italy (at the end of the Valle di Lanza), but it was amazing !
I felt as at the end of the world: only the nature and me. It went from Usseglio towards Alpe Bessanetto; the asphalt finished at the height of 2022 m.
Above the clouds it was wonderful, breathtaking.... At halfway I kept on cycling although there was a barrier.
(In the Alps it is usual that mountainroad addict cyclists go upwards by such situations. There are private roads where cyclists go upwards, although the road is only for the employees of the owner company.).

On the road I met with small and big rocks had fallen earlier from the mountainside.... After going above the clouds it was like a miracle. It was wonderful: the view, the waterfalls and ... chamoises !!

Thanks for watching!

Hello !
I'm proud to present my cycling video about the italian permanent brevet Brenta - Ortles (officially 363 km + 8088 m). Time to finish: 34 hours.
It's route is wonderful and challenging (with legendary Giro d'Italia climbs):
Pietramurata - Molveno - Passo Palade (1518 m) - Merano - Passo dello Stelvio (2760 m) -landslide on the descent - Bormio - Passo di Gavia (2621 m) - Ponte di Legno - Passo del Tonale (1883 m) - Dimaro - Passo Campo Carlo Magno (1682 m) - Stenico - Pietramurata.
I loved it very much and beside it was adventurous because on the Stelvio descent I had to climb through rocks because serious landslides caused by a strom.
During the winter I will edit a longer, ca. 50 minutes long video too and in few weeks time I will share a ca. 2 pages long travelogue about it.

I can truely suggest riding this wonderful challenge or parts of the route !

Thanks for watching and I hope (almost sure :) ) that you like it.

Hello !
In June I had a 17 days long bicycle tour in the Alps, Europe.
In the middle of the tour I participated on an extrem level cycling event: Super Randonné Prealpina (618 kms + 12674 m heightdifference) in Italy.
It's a cyclotouring event in northern Italy, by the lakes: Lago Maggiore, Lago Lugano, Lago d'Orta but contains 14 climbs: Banchette , Bochetto diSessera / Bielmonte , Alpe Noveis , Passo San Bernardo , Passo di Colma , Mottarone (1455 m), Piancavallo (1254 m), Pian dei Sali , Alpe di Neggia (1395 m) , Cademario , Lanzo d'Intelvi , Alpe Tedesco , Sette Termini , Passo Cuvignone (1036 m)
To get the randonnee level you have to finish in 55 hours, but for the tourist version You have 7 days.

After cycling 5 days in Switzerland I had 2 rest days and using the same touring bike I started the challenge; my aim was the randonné version after last year's successful ride by the Valtellina EXtreme Brevet (345 km + 8998 m --> 3 rounds)

I edited a video about this bicycletour; have pleasure with it & thanks for watching !

LInk of the video:

and besides I can truely suggest to participate or to face with this challenge: great ride and the landscape is wonderful !

If you have questions, don't hesitate to write; I will answer for it  and I plan to write my travelogue about this wonderful randonnee !

Hello !
I'm happy to show another compilation / best of video about another great bicycletour in the French Alps with several legendary climbs, ascents. The tour happaned in the year 2011.
After the first 2 days (in Italy ) I cycled in France and visited famous, Tour de France cols, climbs, like Bonette (2802 m), Col d'Izoard (2360 m), Alpe d'Huez, Col du Galibier (2645 m), Col de l'Iseran (2770 m), but few hardly known ones, like Parking du Laus, Le Saut, Plan de Lac (2360 m) - one of my favourite. On the climb of Col de la Lombarde I saw chamois, unfortunately only for few seconds, but in the year 2014 on a hardly known italian ascent (will be presented in few weeks time :) ) offered me the opportunity to record 2 chamoises for video for ca. 1 min long. At La Bonette (2802 m) I got the best amazing weather that I could: sunshine with very small clouds, cumuluses.

Have pleasure with the video and thanks for watching :)

Hello ! :)

In the winter holiday I edited the last 2 remaining videos I missed to have cycling videos about all of the asphalted climbs - ending above 200 0m - in the French Alps.

La Bergerie du Bois Noir (2010 m).
This is a hardly known ascent in France.
The ascent's light section started at Guillestre. I started to cycle the same road that goes to Col d'Izoard, but after the canyon I had to turn right to Ceillac and the ascent's last section was a very calm valley with a stream and with a strange part when ca 30 m long the water came out of the ground and fell down to the stream ....
The paved road finished at 2010 m. I loved this climb ! It's worth visiting !

Video :

The last one was a very beautiful one = one of my favourite climbs, col du Granon (2413 m):
Col du Granon is a steep (9,2% for 1053 m heightdiff. --> so it's harder than the ascent of Alpe d'Huez) and wonderful climb; one of my favourite ascents. 80% of the ascent is a panoramic road and there is almost no traffic: I met ca. 2-3 vehicles during the climb.
Up to now I visited twice and both occasions I rode it in sunny weather.
Have pleasure with the - I think : great - video !

Have pleasure with the video !
(In few months time I plan to write a travelogue too)

/I started a facebook page ( - with posts in Hungarian & in English ) where I will post infos, photos, videos about my tours, experiences (more than 30.000 kms in the Alps, Pyrenées, canary islands & Andalucia) ... about cycling high .. and plan an article or list / collection about the most wonderful paved climbs (finishing above 2000 m) of the Alps, Pyrenées, Canary islands & Andalucia (I haven't visited there Calar Alto 2 years ago I had not enough time for that)

Best regards,

Hello !

After the legendary and very hard cycling challenge ( Monte Grappa challenge ) , / my video:

Best regards,

All of the climb I ascended can be found here with video url-s:

I added another video about an austrian climb going above 2000 m :
Now I show one of the hardest ascent of Austria. It is situated in Tirol: Zillertaler höhenstrasse (2015 m) which is a panoramic road.
It has 5 sides: each of them is 10-12% steep.
I climbed it from Aschau. First I asceended not only to the junction
at ca. 1488 m, but to the viewpoint, Zirmstadel (1800 m) and Kaltenbacher ski-house. That wass ca 10-11 kms long with 11,4 % steepness. Wonderful view along the road.
Then after rolling down to the junction, I went on cycling up to the highest point: Melchboden (2015 m): view to snowy mountains.
The video can be seen here:

Have pleasure with it !
List of my climbs with video links:

Hello !

Last year, in August I cyled few in Tirol, Austria, Europe.
I visited the highest paved ascent (top: 2829 m) of the Alps (Ötztaler glacierroad to the Tiefenbachglacier ) and remembered my memories that I got 8 years ago.
We had wonderful weather, so the video is wonderful and shows well how steep and hard it was.
The ascent is - except 0.5 km - 10-12% for ca. 12-13 km long.

You can find the video here:

My collection with videos about more than 135 ascents finishing above 2000m is here:

Have pleasure with it !
Best regards

Hello !
I finished editing the next video: 1st part shows the Tabernas desert, than the Puerto Escúllar ascent (2036 m) from Abla. ON the ridge of it I saw deers after sunset.

Best regards,

Hello !
Last year I had a 12 days long bicycle tour in Andalucia, Spain. My ai was to cycle up to Pico Veleta (3394 m) and anther high climbs above 2000m + few another panoramic roads.
I cycled Pico Veleta twice: 1st I was cycling from the beach of Motril carrying 25-28kg weighted panniers on it and at midnight I turned back after reaching the end of the pavement.
2 days ater I cycled back to Veleta from Granada without panniers but in ideal lights and strong wind. The view was superb: the sea, GIbraltar could be seen and Africa too (a little bit). UP to now I cycled all of the paved ascents of the Alps, Pyrenées and Canary islands finishing above 2000m, and after them I can say, this climb is between the 3 most wonderful ascents.
The list of my climbs with the links of videos about cycling them:

I have the compilation / best of video about these two days of cycling up to Pico Veleta:

In the last few weeks I uploaded 2 videos about 2 another paved climbs going above 2000 m in Andalucia.
The 1st, Puerto de la Ragua (2000 m) can be found in Sierra Nevada, the same mountain range, where Pico Veleta can be found: it isa panoramic road!
The 2nd climb is not too known: Tetica de Bacares (2080 m, with 360 degrees panorama) is situated ca. 80 kms North from Almeria.
There is a saddle not far from the peak: Puerto de Velefique (1860 m): it was visited by Vuelta a'Espagna I think minimum twice. I saw Indurain sign on a rock along the mountain road The ascent to that saddle is very scenic because of the lot of hairpin-bends.
Puerto de la Ragua (2000 m) northern ascent:

Tetica de Bacares from South:
In the video the climb starts at the ca. 14th minute

Hello !

In Europe there are bicycle marathon series and Ötz valley bicyclemarathon (228 km + 5300 m) is (one of ) the most prestigious bicyclemarathon among them. It is the peak of the season for several cyclists. The start is in Austria (Sölden) but the route visits Italy too. The cyclists have to climb 4 climbs: Kühtai (2020 m) - 17,5 km with 7,5% (Max 18%), Brennerpass (1374 m), Passo MOnte Giovo (2094 m) (15 km + 1124 m - avg steepness: 7,5%) and the last is the hardest: Passo Rombo (2509 m) (29 km + 1796 m; with 6,2% but few kms with 10-12%.).
Its slogan is "I have a dream" - and it was my dream for years: cycle it riding my touringbike and record it for video.
The video (from start to the finish) shows its feeling very well

Have a good time and enjoy it !

Best regards,
Gábor Györgyi
