The Iconic Road

November 25, 2019 0 Comments

The Iconic Road is a work in progress. A new series of generic cycling pictures, rather than of a place, like the Stelvio or the Col du Galibier. I'm looking to capture the atmosphere or the vibe. I wanted to create pictures that give an idea of what's going on around you while you've got your nose stuck to the highway or your Garmin, doing whatever it takes to get up and down these mountains.

The tops of these mountain passes and climbs are wonderfully wild places, unpredictable with often constantly changing weather patterns and conditions. Climbing up them requires continuous concentration on cadence, heart rate, output, you don't want to go into the red if possible, recovery can be an issue especially at high altitude. The higher you climb the harder it tends to get, the less you notice the surroundings or the view, the more you concentrate on the task at hand.

For me, the top of the climb is often the beginning, not the end. This is where I start.
