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.

Résumé
If you’re looking for a true test on the bike, and relish having your legs pummelled by savage inclines, then head to North-West England. Featuring famous climbs such as Honister Pass in the Lake District and Great Dunn Fell in the Pennines, alongside lesser known yet equally arduous ascents like Gorsey Brow and Swiss Hill, the final book in the Cycling Climbs regional series saves the very best until last. From the almost impossible 30% slopes of Hardknott Pass to the gloriously long climb of the Cat and Fiddle, one thing is for certain – you’ll need your strongest climbing legs.

This regional extension of the bestselling 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs is the eighth and final book in this series of UK regional cycling climb guides, the perfect gift for any avid cyclists!
