Best mountains in Girona province
Girona has become one of the coolest cycling destinations in the world. No need to mention all the conditions that Girona has to offer for the best cycling: nice weather all year long, plenty of solitaire roads with very good surface, very close to the Pyrenees with long and steep climbs, and also charming city with fantastic old town and jewish quarter. No wonder Girona is the living place of many professional cyclists and triathletes (list growing but Stuyven, Rohan Dennis, Jan Frodeno are between them).
The list of the best mountains in Girona province is hard to do, as the options are so many. Els Angels seems to be one of the best options, the Sanctuary on top after starting at the same city. Amazing views and solitaire road to enjoy cycling. Rocacorba could not be missed, steep and... steep. Very popular for professionals training there. Mare de Deu del Mont is similar to Rocacorba but nicer, all said, and with another Sanctuary on top visible in the distance, amazing.
Then, a couple of fantastic climbs overlooking the sea: Sant Pere de Rodes with stunning monastry on top, and Sant Grau, a nice climb to a small church from the best road in Catalonia, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
Last 2 for Santa Pellaia (it was the former professional cyclist George Hincapie who loved most this climb, being his training field) and the climb to Sant Hilari Sacalm from Angles, the best of its 4 sides to climb this village.

Dead end climbs of Limburg
Sometimes it is a shame. Climbs that adorn the landscape, but stop dead at the end. Where you are supposed to turn around, while you actually don't want to. Climbing is also descending over a different road than the one you just climbed.
But then again. There are simply climbs that leave you no other choice. Sometimes asphalt turns to gravel or some other unpaved surface. Sometimes roads simply dead end. Often they are beautiful climbs that are willingly or knowingly "forgotten" because they do not fit a certain profile of the rider or bike. Think for example of the Kromhagerweg from Eys, the climb to the Bovenste Bosch via Terziet or the Sleijerweg in Sweikhuizen.
But there is more. Hidden roads on lesser known hills where a mortal on a road bike rarely passes. Yet even these climbs are often asphalted up to a certain height and therefore extremely suitable for the steel horse that normally prefers the beaten track.
Three copies of the book "Heuvel, wat ben je mooi" will be raffled off for the finishers.
Historical climbs of the Amstel Gold Race
Since the beginning of the Amstel Gold Race in 1966, Limburg has been the battleground for the riders. In the beginning there was only one lap through Limburg, but the organisers started looking for more and more extreme climbs. At this moment the Amstel Gold Race is the race with the most climbs in the professional peloton.
This jersey is a tribute to the many climbs that have made the Amstel Gold Race what it is today. In the course of time, the finish has often changed location, so that each time other slopes were decisive. In the beginning the Snijdersberg and Lange Raarberg, and later on of course the Pietersberg and Cauberg.
Historical climbs of the Volta Limburg Classic
The Volta Limburg Classic (until 2011 Hel van het Mergelland) is a one-day cycling race that is held in the Dutch South Limburg Mergelland and the Belgian Voerstreek.
This race is one of the toughest classics in the Dutch cycling world, with tough climbs, fast descents, early dropouts, rain and hail, crashes, narrow victories and talented winners. The race is described in the south as a "pearl of cycling".
Montefusco's best Hills around Barcelona city
Barcelona is an amazing city to cycle. Bike-friendly city, but also plenty of climbs around.
In fact, there are so many interesting climbs that sometimes it is difficult to pick which to choose!
The BHBC jersey shows the best 7 hills around Barcelona. Best ones in terms of views, scarce traffic and also good surface. On top of that, all of them are very close to any point of centric Barcelona, so they are very easy to get.
Not too long, not too steep, not too high, not so hard to get to the top, but mild climbs to enjoy cycling at its best! All year long, even the coldest days in winter these climbs are rideable. Maybe once a year you will see snow at the top of Tibidabo at 500 mts height? Maybe.
Another interesting thing of the climbs included in this jersey is that they can be climbed very easily in just 2 stages (well, just one if you are a die-hard cyclist).
More: all these climbs have been included in the Volta a Catalunya and Vuelta a España stages, but did you know that La Conreria was also included in the Tour de France 2009?
