Review:

So if you are that dude or dudette who is seeking to climb some of the craziest passes in the United States and don't know how to go about it, then you need this book. Consider it the Bible if you will, because it has all the major road climbs and details about each from Lincoln Gap to Brasstown Bald. All the details are there: total elevation, average gradient, length and category. A few scenic shots are included as well as a map of the surrounding area so you can actually find the road. It's a cool book that should be kept in your glovebox, or in your back pocket if you are that crazy to seek each one by bike. Mmm...Not a bod idea! --Road Magazine

I enjoyed your book and will use it during my USA travels - Chris Carmichael, personal coach of 7 time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.

Just as fishermen like to discuss their last be catch, so road cyclists love to talk about their last big climb. Inevitably, the conversation turns to the longest, steepest and most difficult, with experts often comparing their local leg bender with L'Alpe d'Huez. But these discussions inevitably end inconclusively - unless you have a copy of...The Complete Buide to Climbing (By Bike) - John Wilcockson, Velonews --Chris Carmichael

This book is a must for any cyclist. It contains so much great information on the epic climbs that we can find in our own backyard, there is almost no need to ever go to France to ride. I highly recommend this book - Bicycle.net.

Have you ever wondered what are the toughest paved climbs in America? The Complete Guide to Climbing (By Bike)...is a must read for anyone aspiring to ride the biggest and hardest climbs in the US - Bruck Hildenbrand, Bikeradar.com.

Let me start by saying, if you love climbing you must have this book. All in all a long awaited resource book for any passionate cyclist, and if you fancied yourself as a climber, or that is what you hope to be, then you must have this book - George Chester, USA Cycling Coach.

Author John Summerson has written a must read book for climbing aficionados, race directors and those that aspire to test themselves on the biggest climbs in the U.S. - DailyPeloton.com --DailyPeloton.com
