Tour de France:  Legendary Climbs is beautifully illustrated and includes quotes from legends of cycling and summaries of the epic ascents (and occasionally descents) of each climb from TdF history.

We have documented all of the climbs in Richard Abraham’s book covering most of the greatest mountains ever featured in the Tour de France. You can see all the climbs on the “map” or “list” above, or access each individual climb by clicking on the climb itself on the map or on the “list” of the climbs.  The page defaults to the map which has pins for each climb in Blann’s book, but you can also see the full list of climbs by clicking “list” at the top left of the map.  The “list” defaults to alphabetical order, but you can also arrange the climbs by difficulty, distance, highest finish, steepest grade, etc. by using the “Sort” feature to the left of the map/list.

In 2015 I began documenting the world’s top bike climbs, including those in Europe.  My library of course includes Tour de France:  Legendary Climbs.
