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:

( the best three are:
La Palma:
Teide / Tenerife:

Pico Veleta:

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 !
PS: The 2nd half of the collection will / should be finished in 3-4 weeks time.

Best regards,

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

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 !
