Strava Classic Cycling Segments

“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.” – Ernest Hemingway

It’s not uncommon for cyclists to daydream about conquering the world’s most epic mountains. We have all watched the pros tackle legendary climbs in the biggest races, hoping that one day we will have the opportunity to do the same. We want to help you navigate your way through the most iconic cycling segments on the planet.

Through extensive research and feedback from hundreds of Strava athletes, we’ve come up with our initial list of fifty-two Strava Classic Segments, covering everything from famous Tour de France ascents to lesser known (but no less epic) climbs.

What defines classic?

History
The study of past events, particularly in human affairs.
There are countless stories behind legendary climbs. We want to ride what the heroes of our sport have ridden.

Difficulty
A thing that is hard to accomplish, deal with, or understand.

Great cyclists love a challenge and know how to suffer. Segments that are hard to endure make us stronger and there is no better feeling than getting to the top of a difficult climb.

Scenery
The natural features of a landscape considered in terms of their appearance, especially when picturesque.
Instead of driving to a gym, cyclists immerse themselves in nature. We appreciate the beautiful scenery that surrounds us at every turn.
