does anyone prefer the good old days of cycling to today (le tour e.t.c)?
Has anyone done the Muro di Sormano climb?
It's on my bucket list, but I'm not sure if it will live up to the expectations created in this video!

I haven't done it but the video definately builts up the expectation likeyou said.
It looks a beautiful ride to be honest in stuning scenery so it can't be too bad...
Do you know where abouts it is?

Just read about it in the latest issue of cyclist mag.
Sounds good to me!

Italy, near Lake Como and the cycling shrine and museum at the top of the Ghisallo. It's sometimes included in Il Lombardia, the Tour of Lombardy, the traditional season's end classic.

Yeah, have a look at the Cyclist Mag. It's got cool road markings showing every metre of ascent.

It was included in the 2012 Lombardia after being left out of the route for a long time - road.cc says it's 50 years. But is there such a thing as an "ultimate" climb?
Edit: the paint is a bit to prominent for me, a bit "in yer face", as they say. I'd have preferred a less blocky, more cursive or lighter style. It reminds me of the Nike chalkbot and thoughts of the corporate takeover of the tradition of fans painting on the roads.
