    Hello !

    I have been uploading my bicycle tour videos for few years. If you would see great videos or woudl get ideas where to find nice / beautiful ascents in the Alps or Pyrenées I suggest to visit my collection which is now the widest video collection about paved ascents of the Alps. Beside it contains ca. dozen of ascents of the Pyrenées + 3 ascents of the Canary islands (2* Teide plateau + wonderful climb of Roque de los Muchachos (2426 m) at La Palma).

    Most of them = full HD quarily, but older videos are not full HD.
    The collection: http://www.youtube.com/gyorgyigabor

    Few great ones:
    Last: Pico Veleta (3394 m) comlpilation (2 occasions of cycling up): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsFzaebbuOw

    La Bonette : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nkTwSjSfD8

    Col de l'Iseran (2770 m): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ieJ6jLleIE

    Roque de los Muchachos: (2426 M): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgpnDGUmP_A

    Andorra Arcalis: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzKgT2t62X4

    a very steep, hardly known ascent, Idalpe (2320 m): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLIVdPHaEuY

    another hardly know ascent opposite of Eiger - Mönch - Jungfrau = Oberläger (2025 m)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gu4ryVEbgs8

    hardly know ascent in Valais (CH): Bettmeralp (2040 m):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7-jwX8uCh0

    La Marmotte bicycle marathon 1st part:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpBBdliiVms
    2nd part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzIpsgSCgjs

    In the following weeks I will upload videos about another 5-10 high ascents and about a video of Monte Grappa challenge, which day I cycled 225 kms + 7241 m heightdiff on Monte Grappa (4 times up + extra)

    Best regards:

    thanks - have hiked around Wengen and Grindelwald and desperately want to return there with my bike. THE most beautiful place on the planet IMHO.

    Thanks :)

    I edited a best of video about my bicycletour that I had this summer in the Alps (1828 kms + 39441 m ) . This video contains not all of the climbs that I cycled but the most beautiful ones or most memorable ones. The following clmbs can be seen for few dozen seconds or for a minute: Passo Mortirlo, Gavia, Umbrail, Passo dello Stelvio , Forcola di Livigno , Passo dello Spluga , Juf , Oberalppass , Sustenpass (in rain + 3 degrees Celsius) , Triftalp ( 2090 m) , Moosalp (Stalden side along the vertical rockwall ) , Simplonpass , Colle Fauniera (partly above clouds) , Usseglio - Alpe Bessanetto climb (with chamois !!! ) , Col des Gondrans, La Bergerie du Bois Noir (2009 m), Col du Granon, Sestriere In the following weeks I will edit new videos about each day (1st: Granon, then La Bergerie du Bois Noir) to have videos (in my collection) about all of the paved climbs finishing above 2000 m in the French Alps. Have pleasure with the video ! (In few months time I plan to write a travelogue too) /I started a facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/cycling.high - with posts in Hungarian & in English ) where I will post infos, photos, videos about my tours, experiences (more than 30.000 kms in the Alps, Pyrenées, canary islands & Andalucia) ... about cycling high .. and plan an article or list / collection about the most wonderful paved climbs (finishing above 2000 m) of the Alps, Pyrenées, Canary islands & Andalucia (I haven't visited there Calar Alto 2 years ago I had not enough time for that) Best regards, Gábor

    Hello !
    Thanks for watching & enjoying "my climbs" :)

    The following video
    is a hardly known ascent in France: la Bergerie du Bois Noir (2010 m). The ascent's light section started at Guillestre. I started to cycle the same road that goes to Col d'Izoard, but after the canyon I had to turn right to Ceillac and the ascent's last section was a very calm valley with a stream and with a strange part when ca 30 m long the water came out of the ground and fell down to the stream .... The paved road finished at 2010 m. I loved this climb ! It's worth visiting !

    Have pleasure with it and thanks for enjoying it [​IMG] Best regards, Gábor

    Hello !

    Here is the last video I missed to have all videos about the asphalted climbs going above 2000 m in the French Alps. (In the following post I will show that list / collection with photos and videos ) Col du Granon is a steep (9,2% for 1053 m heightdiff. --> so it's harder than the ascent of Alpe d'Huez) and wonderful climb; one of my favourite ascents. 80% of the ascent is a panoramic road and there is almost no traffic: I met ca. 2-3 vehicles during the climb. Up to now I visited twice and both occasions I rode it in sunny weather. Have pleasure with the - I think : great - video

    Hey Gábor

    And how's road cycling in Hungary (and if you've ridden in Serbia, Slovenia, etc.)?

    What do You mean ?
    The quality of the roads, or... ?
    In Budapest there are more and more bicycle roads / paths, and lot of places where bicycles can rent. The traffic is not the best, but I usually cycle on the mountains, on paved forestry roads with no or not much traffic.

    Every year a very serious bicycle event is organised: the Critical Mass -: 20-30.000 cyclists use their bike and cycle in Budapest or an hour on main roads... :)

    Whil in Hungary there are not enough high mountaisn every summer I have a bicycle tour abroad: in the Alps, Pyrenees, or canary islands, but in the year 2012 I cycled in Andalucia. Earlier I cycled 5 times in WSlovakia to the Tatras.
    I cycled minimum 100 or 1300 kms in Slovenia; that's a great place too, mainly the mountanous region :)

    [SIZE=10pt]Hello ![/SIZE]
    [SIZE=10pt]Based on the two most famous database of the world's ascents (salite.ch , climbbybike.com ) the climb of Grosser Oscheniksee (2394 m) is the hardest or 2nd hardest paved climb of the Alps. It is situated in Austria, Carinthia. Length: 17 kms with 9,8%, but the last 10km is the hardest with no light part, with avg steepness: 13% (mainly 14-15%, sometimes 19-20%). There a 10% section should be considered as light, gentle :)[/SIZE][SIZE=10pt] It's a serious challenge ! [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=10pt]From now on there is a detailled, long (32 min. long) video about it to motivate the cyclists to visit this epic, monster, killer climb :)
    Enjoy it !

    After the last video, the following will be a .... one that could have great effect; it shows a lot-lot wonderful landscape, ascents, valleys, but beside coast too.
    This is a video compilation with music, so this video can be used for a spinning training. A lot of wonderful ascents, landscapes can be watched in the video where I cycled in the last 5 years. It was recorded in the Alps, Pyrénées, Andalucia (Costa del Sol + Sierra Nevada). Few climbs that appear in the video: Mont Ventoux, Passo di Gavia, Bonette, Galibier, there are ascents that hadn't been filmed was rarely filmed ( Dürrboden), Col de la Core, Peyresourde, Ordesa National park in the Pyrénées, Pico Veleta (3394 m) in Andalucia. Few minutes about famous cycling challenges can be seen too: Monte Grappa challenge (261 km + 7241 m), Ötztaler radmarathon (228 km + 5500 m), Valtellina Extreme brevet (345 km + 8998 m). Have pleasure with the video & thanks for watching ! :)

    Hello !

    Few days ago I edited a cycling video about a great and wonderful climb in Italy.
    I'm happy to present this cycling video about that great, hardly known climb.
    I cycled in a valley (Valle di Lanza in Piemont, Italy) and then upwards on a private road towards Alpe Bessanetto (2022 m) where I felt almost like at the end of the World. Above the clouds it was wonderful, breathtaking.... Waterfalls everywhere, only the nature and me + few clouds..... and at the end of the road: chamoises

    Unforgettable !

    I hope You like it and thanks for watching ! [​IMG]

    This is some view. Really nice video thanks for the post. Can use this video for visualization at home when you don't go out for a ride.
