The Complete Guide to Climbing By Bike in the Southeast offers cyclists information on road bike climbing and the top climbs in the Southeast United States. States included are Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee and West Virginia and the total number of climbs is around 150. There are sections on training and other climbing areas. It also has rankings, appendices, profiles and more data than you can imagine for each climb. I have the nationwide climbing guide (Complete Guide to Climbing By Bike) and while it keeps a similar format, the SE guide has some extra data and a bit different look (and is smaller and easier to carry).

Much of the book is devoted to actual climbs and each is described with stats and directions and a short description. The rankings and categories are quite amazing and will make you want to hit the road to ride each hill. I found climbs close to my home that I was simply not aware of so I hope to hit those this summer.

Overall a good overview of climbing and data you just cannot find any place else. Well worth it.

Want mountains to climb? They're here. Descriptions are brief, though, so don't expect a lot more than the basic facts. You'll need to create your own cue sheet in some cases, but if you want a great list of great rides, this is it.

Useful addendum to the author's national edition, I live in North Georgia and there are a number of great climbs enumerated in the text. Let the suffering begin!

While the hardest climb I've done is usually the last one or the next one, this book lays out some objective critieria and ranks climbs in the southeastern US. For the climbs I have done, the descriptions seem pretty accurate. For climbs I have not done, the book tells me where to find them and what to expect in terms of length, average and steepest grades, etc.

The list of 14 organized rides (e.g. mountain centuries) with "significant climbing" is also nice, although it includes at least one that seems to no longer exist and some where the URL's have changed (but can easily be found through a web search).
