It's very important to remember that cyclists are fanatics. It comes with the territorial. Don't expect them to be normal. To them cycling 27km. up a mountain for no apparent reason is normal, they do it to stay normal, at least on the outside. They do it for the challenge, they do it because they can, for the thrill of it, for the buzz. They do it 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 that counts. Who doesn't want that in their life?

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 the mountain passes are just helping to frame raw nature.

The Iconic Road by davidt

The climb has been conquered, the opposition dropped. Spinning out onto the edge of the world in search of glory. Is this not where I am meant to be?
