Thanks to the Tour de France any true cycling fan knows the Mont Ventoux and Alpe d'Huez.
This website provides information on these two climbs,
as well as on 42 further ascents in the French Alps.
Assets of this part of the Alps are the numerous climbing opportunities,
the relatively favorable climate
and the mostly good road conditions.
In the ranking of the page, the number one position of the
Ventoux strikes, despite its location at the edge of the Alps.
For many it may come as a surprise that the ascent to
Alpe d'Huez ("south" is the classic one) only takes rank eleven.
It will certainly not hold its top-10 position
when in future more climbs are added.
