Iconic European mountain summit stones - Just in

Pyrenean and Alpine climbs celebrated with miniature replicas

To get you in the mood for the imminent mountain stages of this year's Tour de France, take a look at these novel summit stones of some of cycling's most iconic European climbs.

This is the Alpe d'Huez model but there are 20 available in total, including Col du Galibier, Mont Ventoux and the mountain set to play a major part in this year's race, Col du Tourmalet. Each stone, perfect as a paper weight, is a replica of that found at the summit and includes the road number, altitude and map on the rear.

Each is hand made in France from plaster of Paris, measures 9 x 6 x 5cm and costs £11.49 direct from Cycling Souvenirs.

After early cycling flirtations with the Tour de France on childhood holidays, John Whitney fell for it hook, line and sinker in his mid-20s as an escape from the more sedate sports of his youth. As a classically trained news reporter, he snagged his dream job as a cycling writer straight out of college and is now fully immersed in the industry and wouldn't have it any other way.
