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.

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 !

Hello !
In the year of 2012 I finished collecting all of the known paved ascents going above 2000 m in the Alps, Pyrenées & Canary islands (cycled 240 times above 2000 m). After visiting anc cycling them I made a collection about the most beautiful climbs and I wrote introductions about them, added videos and photos and maps of these great ascents.
You will find well known ascents (like Pico Veleta, Passo dello Stelvio or Col du Galibier) and hardly known ascents (like Plan du Lac (2362 m), Männlichen (2229 m), Taunernmoss See (2088 m)) among them.
I know that the adventure the experience depends on the weather that I had when I cycled there, and there can be another roads, that I haven’t visited yet, so there could be few onother ones which may be wonderful too. I’m curious if You show me that climbs!
The 1st half of my collection can be found here:
http://www.gyorgyigabor.hu/GYG_best_of_climbs.html

( the best three are:
La Palma: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgpnDGUmP_A

and: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHB969KodOY

Pico Veleta: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsFzaebbuOw

The 1st half of my collection contains the following ascents:
Roque de los Muchachos (2426 m) – La Palma, Teide plateau (2200-2300 m) – Tenerife, Pico Veleta (3394 m) – Spain, Grossglockner heigh alpine road – Austria, Passo dello Stelvio (Italy), Colle Nivolet (Italy) , Presa de l’Lauset (Pyrenées) , Col de l’Iseran – France, Cime de la Bonette (France), Mangart road (SLovenia), Männlichen (Switzerland) , Oberläger (Switzerland) , Diga Finstertal (Austria)

Have a good time with them !

Hello !
There is a challenge about Mont Ventoux for cyclists. You can be member of the Club des Cinglés du Mont Ventoux ( http://www.clubcinglesventoux.org/ ) if you cycle this legendary climb 3 times in a day from 3 different directions (starts: Bedoin, Malaucene, Sault ) - it is 4443 m heightdifference. THis is the Cinglés level.
If you cycle 4 different ascents of the Ventoux (4th one goes up from Bedoin but using a dirt forestry road) you can get the Galérien level. I did it in the year of 2010 and finished the day (starting and finishing the camp) after 191 kms + 6126 m heightdifference.
I recorded video and edited music to the background and I think it's a good video about the beauty and the feeling about cycling Mont Ventoux.
I think this is the mountain which is the most visited by cyclists.
There are good sections about the descent (with music) at 11. minutes, then at 24:15 or from 32. minutes.
The video can be found here:

Have a good time and enjoy it ! :)

Hello,
In the year of 2012 I participated in a great cycling event, brevet that was organised on Monte Grappa (1775 m), a legendary mountain of Italy, where I recorded video. By this event the cyclists can climb the mountain 2-3-4-5 times in a day. An ascent means ca. 1500-1600 m heightdifference and 2-3 of them has 13-15-20% steep sections. The landscape is a mixture of rocks mountainsides, friendly meadows and there are great views to the plain.
This event day was one of my most memorable cycling day and I finished the day after 261 kms + 7241 m heightdifference.

The video can be reached here:

In my youtube channel you can find cycletouring videos about more than 130 paved ascents of the Alps, Pyrenées and Canary islands going above 2000 m :

Hello !

I wrote a ca. 10 pages long travelogue (with map, photos, videos) about my bicycletour that I have in the Pyrenées.
I cycled 2368 kms + 42996 m heightdiff, enjoyed the Tour de France feeling 3 times.
I started it with cycling 4 times in a day up to Mont Ventoux.
A few climbs, that I cycled: Port de Lers, Col d'Agnes, Guzet Neige, Col de la Core, Portet d'Aspet, Col de Mente, Peyresourde, Aspin, the wonderful Cirque Troumouse (2108 m), Col d'Aubisque, Col de Portalet. there is a ca. 100km wide wonderful section in Spain from Col de POrtalet through Ordesa national park to the line of Cerler. I cycled Cerler, Boi Taüll (2038m), a beautiful and almost unknown road to Presa L'lauset (2193 m), then in Andorra: Arcalis (2225 m), Els Cortals (2068 m), Grau Roig.
There is a lovely and idyllic valley in France which goes to Lac de Bouillouses (2017 m), another ascent towards Puigmal; it ended by 2077m. The last high climb was Vallter in Spain.
I finished my tour in Barcelona.
