I'm trying to think of either a famous cycling town, race or climb that begins with the letter "D" but I'm having problems coming up with any and google isn't much help either.

So I thought I'd open it up to the masses.

EDIT: I'm using the name as a codeword for a project I'm working on, so Dauphine it is. I've already had Alpe d'Huez, Big Bear Lake, Cairn O'Mount so far.

Do you at least know what continent? – gerrit Dec 9 '12 at 20:18
Are you maybe thinking of a French pass such as Col d'Izoard? – Daniel R Hicks Dec 9 '12 at 20:30
Preferably Europe but it doesn't need to be, there are some great climbs in the USA too. I did think of using one of the french cols like d'Izoard or d'Huez but I kind of felt like that was cheating. – Neil Dec 10 '12 at 9:33
What's the context - are there going to be 25 other questions for the other letters? – Unsliced Dec 10 '12 at 11:02
@PeteH - absolutely!! – Neil Dec 10 '12 at 15:21

Apparently i can't just write Dauphiné Libéré because that's not enough letters to constitute a proper answer on StackExchange

How didn't I think of this!!?!? Awesome, thanks :D – Neil Dec 10 '12 at 11:39

You could try the Flüela Pass starting in Davos Switserland, going to Nauders / Austria:

Or, for more alpine chic: the Albula pass between Davos and Sankt Moritz.
