Great Road Climbs of the Pyrenees
The Great Road Climbs of the Pyrenees’ is not a conventional guide to the Pyrenees. Facts and guidance is offered on obscure and well-known Pyrenean cols, but the gripping element is rather a highly personal exploration by Fife of the variety and peculiarity of the region that leaves the reader with a colourful and memorable picture. Fife combines careful historical research with a swift narrative style and supported by beautiful photographic portrayals of the imposing landscapes by Pete Drinkell, it gives persuasive encouragement to visit.
Great Road Climbs of the Southern Alps
The second volume in the series of Rapha Guides, the Great Road Climbs of the Southern Alps continues our journey along the roads and cols of Europe. Written by Graeme Fife with the photography of Pete Drinkell, the book captures the beauty and intrigue of the southern regions of the Alps, exploring climbs and roads steeped in the history of road racing and beyond.
Great Road Climbs of the Northern Alps
Graeme Fife delivers once more with a text full of inspiration, information and historical insights. And Pete Drinkell’s photography of the region is arguably his best yet. Full bleed images are accompanied by area maps and col profiles. A must have for anyone who dreams of riding in France and Italy.
Great Road Climbs of the Dolomites and Italian Alps
“These are the high places of cycling legend. On their slopes, in the thin air that wreaths their passes, some riders have been broken, a few have, improbably, exceeded all limits of fortitude, others have merely survived, but survived.” An unrivalled guide to Italy’s legendary road climbs, written with characteristic panache by Graeme Fife, and featuring the beautiful photography of Peter Drinkell.
