Mountain High, Daniel Friebe and Pete Goding
I think Mountain High: Europe's 50 Greatest Cycle Climbs by Daniel Friebe and Pete Goding is one of the best road cycling books you can buy. It is a sumptuous summary of 50 of Europe’s best climbs, with most of them located in the Alps and Pyrenees, plus a sprinkling elsewhere (the Vosges, Apennines, southern Spanish sierras and Belgium).

Mountain High is beautifully written by Friebe and manages to combine three different bike book genres in one: a coffee table cycling book, a guide to Europe’s best climbs and a book about pro cycling. It was shortlisted for the British Sports Book Awards 2012.
I think Mountain High is a book for cyclists of all levels - from experienced club racers who’ve trained on some of Europe’s most dramatic peaks to newbies thinking about their first cycle challenge.
If you love cycling why haven't you got it already?
