Avid cyclists know that hill climbing is the crux of the sport. Getting up cycling's brutal slopes is often what separates average from elite riders. However, accurate information on this cyycling sub-specialty has been lacking, particularly the location and profiling of the great Northeast climbs, some of which rival the major European professional tours' best. This situation has now been rectified as this guidebook provides cycling peak-baggers with everything they need to know; from how best to prepare to get to the top of the mountain to the most difficult paved ascents in the northeast United States defined as Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, eastern New york and Vermont.

 

Infomration within the guide includes:

-Climbing definitions and training tips

-Descriptions and accurate clim information including total elevation, length and average/maximum grade

-Appendices with climb rankings and other information

-Maps and easy to read directions

-Climb profiles
