For the cyclists in your life
It's important to understand that cyclists are never average. It comes with the territory. Don't expect them to be average or normal. For a bike rider, cycling 27km. up a mountain for no apparent reason is normal. They do it for the challenge, they do it because they can, for the thrill of it, for the kudos, for the buzz. For the incredible sense of elation that comes with being in the middle of a landscape so impressive it takes your breath away. To know without a shadow of a doubt this is a good day, a great day, a day to remember, a day that counts.
Who doesn't want that in their life?
Wall of Achievement - If you have climbed it, put it on your wall of achivements to remind yourself, and others, how far you have been. If you haven't been there yet, put it on your wall to remind yourself, and others, how far you still intend to go.

Five kilometres in, and you could be forgiven for thinking the Galibier isn’t so bad. Well into the climb, and apart from the initial ramp out of Valloire, nothing has really tested you. All that training must have been more effective than you thought. You might even consider a coffee or an ice cream at a very attractive little cafe by the side of the road. That is all about to change.

Two silhouetted riders climb the bleached, sun-baked mountainside of Mont Ventoux in the morning sunshine. Truly, what a time to be alive.
I can't talk about the weather or the wind because it's always been beautiful, clear, sunny, and warm when I have visited, which is just fine for someone who's had quite enough wind and rain.

Heading off the top of the Stelvio Pass down the road to Bormio takes you deep into the mountains by way of a steep gorge complete with a series of tunnels. It really is the only way to go.

The beauty and power of black and white photography are in the structure and form. Stripped of the distraction of colour, the structure and form are revealed. The Stelvio, The Galibier, Alpe d'Huez, Sa Calobra, or the St. Gotthard Pass all have an abundance of structure, form, and shape. The roads that work themselves up and around these mountain passes are just helping to frame raw nature. - Outside is free
