CYCLING CLIMBS OF WALES

Description Description

This time tackling the green hills of Wales, Simon Warren picks out 75 more challenges in the third book of his UK regional cycling climbs series. Expanding on previously documented routes as seen in bestselling 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs as well as over 50% new material, it's clear the UK still has lots to offer.

Countless incredible climbs span the entire length of Wales; peppered across the exposed peaks of Snowdonia and nestling among the tangled lanes of Denbighshire, reaching across the sparse wilderness of the stunning Brecon Beacons and diving deep into the congestion of the southern Valleys. Climbs such as the Devil’s Staircase, the Horseshoe Pass and Bwlch-Y-Groes are etched into cycling history, and there are many lesser known yet equally amazing ascents out there waiting to be unearthed. With scenery to rival anywhere on Earth and roads so quiet you could hear a pin drop, Wales, under clear blue skies, is cycling heaven.
