Rid­ing the Colle delle Finestre in late Au­gust with my brother Gra­ham, fol­low­ing in the tyre tracks of Chris Froome af­ter his amaz­ing at­tack in the Giro. The climb is tough yet re­ward­ing, a must on ev­ery cy­clist’s bucket list. Dave Lee

The ones away from work. Shane Grigsby

Co­in­ci­den­tally I went on to win by half a lap af­ter a solo ef­fort off the front for the fi­nal 15 min­utes of it. Tom Mans­field

The coast road out from Girona a cou­ple of weeks ago. Stun­ning. Gareth Greaves-mil­ner

Two days and 20,000ft of climb­ing in early Au­gust tick­ing off all 11 of Si­mon War­ren’s great­est climbs in the Lake Dis­trict. Great com­pany, great weather, great scenery and a great chal­lenge. Kirk Vitty

The moun­tains of north Costa Blanca and the Col de Tudons — al­ready booked to go back. Jeff Smith

100km across Fuerteven­tura while on hol­i­day. Andy Win­ton
