20 of Europe’s most iconic mountains are represented in the summit stones (John Whitney/BikeRadar)

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.
