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
