Newly published by Laurence King, Cycling Climbs: Twenty Art Prints focuses on twenty classic cycling climbs from across Europe, the USA and South America.
Hairpin bends, vertiginous gradients and the thin air of mountain roads have long been enjoyed (is that quite the right word?) by cyclists the world over. A drawing by Nigel Peake which can be detached and slotted into an 11 x 14-inch frame accompanies each climb. These are in a variety of styles – some stylised, some abstract, all simple. There is also a short description of the climb from Claire Beaumont along with a brief history telling how the cycling greats fared when tackling these climbs.
Should you feel brave enough to follow in their tyre tracks, there are a few tips on how to successfully navigate these precipitous slopes.
We have a copy of Cycling Climbs to give away.
