Publishing to coincide with the Tour de Yorkshire, a new race introduced on the back of the success of the 2015 Tour de France starting race, this is the second title in a series of eight UK regional Cycling Climbs guides. With revised and revisited routes from bestselling cycling guides 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs and Another 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs, as well as over 50% new material, Simon Warren uncovers 60 of the best cycling climbs in Yorkshire. Selected as the starting point of the 2015 Tour de France, Yorkshire indeed offers some of the most challenging cycling climbs in Britain. From the cobbled streets above Halifax, through the winding wilderness of the Moors and out onto the far-reaching plains of the Dales, there are a multitude of picturesque routes ready for all cycling enthusiasts to enjoy. With a careful dissection of each climb alongside tips and pointers for all abilities, Simon Warren once again offers expert advice on conquering the most challenging of hills.
SIMON WARREN has been obsessed with cycling since the summer of 1989 after watching Greg Lemond battle Laurent Fignon in the Tour de France. A few weeks later he rode his first race, a 10 mile time trial on the A1 from Newark to Grantham and back. Although not having what it took to beat the best, he found his forte was racing up hills, and so began his fascination with steep roads. His quest to discover Britain's greatest climbs resulted in the bestselling 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs, followed by Another 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs, Hellingen: A Road Cyclist's Guide to Belgium's Greatest Cycling Climbs and 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs of the Tour de France: A Cyclist's Guide to Riding the Mountains of the Tour. Simon works during the day as a magazine art editor and lives in Walthamstow, east London with his wife and two children.
