Cycling Climbs of North-West England by Simon Warren, £8.99
THIS regional extension of the bestselling 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs is the eighth and final book in this series of UK regional guides.
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. From the almost impossible 30 per cent 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 series of books really has saved the very best until last.
