Mountains: Epic Cycling Climbs

Michael Blann’s book Moutains looks at Europe’s greatest mountains and the cycling climbs enacted on them

Thames&Hudson has published a photobook of Europe’s most striking mountains for cycling.

Documented by the former professional cyclist turned photographer Michael Blann, Mountains looks at ranges such as the Ardennes and the Alps, and how they have provided the setting for some of the greatest cycling contests to date.

Aside from its stunning imagery, the book contains a reference section that includes locator maps and climb profiles. It also has personal recollections from leading road-racing cyclists on their famous climbs.
