Baseball has its Wrigley Field. Basketball’s hallowed ground is Madison Square Garden. Football’s Shangri La is found at Green Bay’s Lambeau Field. But in cycling, there are no arenas or stadiums (unless you’re talking track). Instead it’s the high alpine climbs that define our sport. Alpe d’Huez, Angliru, Mont Ventoux, these are our scared shrines. But what’s the best way to get up one of these mammoth mountain ascents — or the big climbs in your neighborhood. The gang from the Global Cycling Network checks in from Alpe d’Huez to share some wisdom. Have a look.
