‘If you’re looking for post-lockdown riding inspiration, this book delivers it in spades’
ROAD.CC

‘This is a truly beautiful book’
CHRIS SIDWELLS, author of Wild Cycling and Really Wild Cycling

‘Impeccable design and compulsive content . . . phenomenal . . . glorious photography, often colourfully spread across two wide-format pages, each numbered and graded ride is accompanied by a map, a profile that usually resembles the teeth of a tyrannosaurus, a summary of the key climbs, the total distance covered and the total vertical distance achieved on completion’

In this inspirational book, filled with amazing photographs, Simon has showcased Britain’s beautiful landscape in the same way that Michael Blann and others have done for the mountains of continental Europe. The aim is always to make people want to get out and ride Britain’s roads, to entice people to put themselves in the pictures on every page and ride through the stunning scenery.

The book is a seamless blend of beautiful photographs and information on the rides, including gradient diagrams and maps. This is Simon Warren taking his well-deserved reputation as the King of Climbs and displaying it in a bold new format, from pocket guide to cinemascope.

The book contains 40 inspirational rides split across eight chapters covering the whole of mainland Britain. From Dartmoor through Wales, the Peak District and the Pennines all the way via the Lakes to the Highlands of Scotland. From Surrey and Kent to Lincolnshire and Northumberland, if there are hills Simon has found them and plotted a route to share his knowledge.

Each ride includes a profile of the route, a detailed map and breakdown of the key climbs, also a description of what to expect along the way, all illustrated by inspirational photography.

The eight chapters cover the South-west, the South-east, the Midlands, Yorkshire, the North-east, Scotland, the North-west and Wales, so, no matter where you live, there will be something close to your doorstep. There is even a route in Norfolk!
