It's important to understand that cyclists are fanatics. It comes with the territory. 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, because they can, for the thrill of it, 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?
The Col du Galibier, a classic of Le Tour de France. Steeped in cycling history and folklore, forever associated with Merckx, Coppi and all the greats of the peloton.
Set your alarm for before dawn to climb Mont Ventoux. The heat rises faster than you in the summer months. It's a great time to be alive, don't be late.
Meanwhile, boys and girls on bicycles quietly concentrate, stick to their task, hold their cadence, rhythm, and belief. Climbing this mountain doesn’t mean anything unless you do it with your own efforts, under your own power.
Fantastic photography of the Col du Galibier, so evocative of this part of the French Alps. The photography print quality is excellent. I am hoping to ride and buy the entire collection eventually. I just wish my pictures turned out like these!

Just received my A1 colour Passo Gardena, an absolutely stunning piece of artwork. Far better than anything else I have seen. A true exemplar of professional creative cycling photography. Beautifully packed and wrapped with attention to the tiniest detail to ensure it arrived in pristine condition. Thanks very much.

I was given an A1 black and white print of Life is a Road for my birthday recently. It has been up on the living room wall for a couple of months now and I just love it! Such a beautiful picture, makes me smile every time I look at it. Good work David.

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.
