I think Mountain High: Europe’s 50 Greatest Cycle Climbs by Daniel Friebe and Pete Goding is one of the best road cycling books you can buy. It is a sumptuous summary of 50 of Europe’s best climbs, with most of them located in the Alps and Pyrenees, plus a sprinkling elsewhere (the Vosges, Apennines, southern Spanish sierras and Belgium).
Mountain High is beautifully written by Friebe and manages to combine three different bike book genres in one: a coffee table cycling book, a guide to Europe’s best climbs and a book about pro cycling. It was shortlisted for the British Sports Book Awards 2012.
I think Mountain High is a book for cyclists of all levels – from experienced club racers who’ve trained on some of Europe’s most dramatic peaks to newbies thinking about their first cycle challenge.
