Gallery: Riding the highest road in the world

  • By cannonball

Mountains are earth’s giants. They’re behemoths, slowly pushing their way through the clouds over millions of years to scratch at heaven’s belly. The ancient rocks offer us the highest ground we can stand on. But they don’t give up their prize easily.

The roads are treacherous, hair-pinned and protected by shields of harsh weather. But that just makes them even more addictive. Straddling a combustion engine through their winding passes, braving the terrain and battling our way to the peak turns us into conquerors. Europe’s mountains have been beaten many times; strapped down and tamed with well-laid and ridden tarmac.
