Ever tackled Mont Ventoux? How about Tourmalet, any climbs on the Etape du Tour, Galiebier, Croix de Fer..? So many people have these massive climbs on their bucket list, some are lucky enough to have conquered one or more.
If you have, or you’ve done much travelling in Europe, you’ll have noticed the distinctive kilometre (km) markers on the side of the road. Typically they give you the road name or number and the altitude.
The km markers from these bucket list climbs and mountains are available in model form. We stock these, they’re hand made in France using traditional methods and hand painted. They make excpetional gifts or souvenirs and are extremely popular. Even if you haven’t climbed these roads yet, they are a great reminder of your bucket list goals.
