Is your favourite climb/region missing?

All climbs are subdivided into cycling regions, such as the French Alps and the Ardennes. A cycling region is often a mountainous region, upland, highland or a famous tourist destination. We provide key facts for each cycling region such as the average length of climbs and the height difference. Moreover, we categorize the regions according to difficulty. The regions in the list below can also filtered on countries, the best period for cycling or road conditions.
