The Big Rides • 9 epic adventures for road cyclists

A fistful of bar tape • In a land arid enough to pass itself off as the Wild West frontier, Cyclist discovers the Alpe d’Huez of the desert

Cyclist vs The Volcano • With steep climbs, cobbled descents and the constant threat of a volcanic eruption, this Sicilian adventure is a true epic

High point • At 2,361m, the Izoard was the highest col in 2014’s Tour de France and has been the scene of many epic rides in the past. Cyclist tackles a true classic

Battleground of the Vuelta • In the Picos de Europa mountains lurks a climb of legend. The Vuelta a Espana has visited it 19 times, so we ventured to northern Spain to see what the pros have to endure on the Covadonga

The Grand Peak • Cyclist journeys to Colorado to visit Pikes Peak, a piece of American history, a motorsport paradise and one of cycling’s best kept secrets

The Devil’s Pitchfork • The Pyrenees have more than their share of classic, leg-shredding climbs, and on this ride Cyclist takes a stab at four of them in quick succession

Ring of fire • Cyclist experiences the spectacular and the unforgiving on a tour of the volcanic island of Lanzarote

The Full Monte • Monte Grappa in the north of Italy is far more than just a beautiful place to ride a bike – it helped save a nation

Ride of the gods • With guaranteed sun, winding hairpin roads and just the roaming local goats for company, Crete is one cycling destination worthy of Zeus himself
