    The Rapha Guide to The Great Road Climbs of the Pyrenees

    This book is a unique cycling guide to the great cols in the Pyrenees written for Rapha by writer and broadcaster Graeme Fife.

    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.

    The Pyrenees is sub-divided into 8 distinct regions, covering all the major climbs in France and Spain. Over 320 pages, 90 climbs are described, with hand-drawn maps and gradient profiles.

    The Great Road Climbs of the Pyrenees is a remarkably evocative piece of work. The words of Graeme Fife combine with the photographs of Pete Drinkell to create a portrait of the region that allows the imagination to run wild.
