About the Author

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 and Hellingen: A Road Cyclist's Guide to Belgium's Greatest Cycling Climbs. Simon works during the day as a magazine art editor and lives in Walthamstow, east London with his wife and two children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy Successor 10 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Simon has the formula exactly right for this series of books. No waffle, just another 100 climbs to tick off. The book is the perfect size with just the right amount of information for each hill.

However, I am particularly gutted that he has released this as I had just managed 60 from the last book and now my quest is made all the harder. The only downside is the pictures, which I think would definitely have benefited from having riders in them. Well done for another great guide, and I expect it won't be the last.

Many of the 'missing' climbs are now included in this second volume of another 100 greatest cycling climbs, from all around the UK, and this time the Isle of Man too.

The book is presented in the same manner as volume one, which makes it an easy to pick up read.

The only thing I would have added would have been how much traffic uses the road in question, as one in my locality is a very busy and fast road. Climbing that hill while being passed by cars doing 50+ uphill isn't pleasant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great guide to some tough climbs 4 May 2012
Format:Paperback
Set in regional sections, this book provides detailed descriptions of the toughest climbs in each region.

Having climbed a number of these before getting the book I was immeadiately impressed by the accuracy and detail included. For the climbs I hadn't tried; after reading the reviews I felt more knowledgeable but a tad scared of what was to be; when I set off to try them!!!

I agreed with most ratings but felt some of the shorter, steeper ones on poor road conditions were due a higer rating. Overall a recommended reference point for any serious road cyclists book shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb 1 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Yes some of the climbs you know that you consider up there may not be in this book but it is still fantastic. handy pocket size with just the right detail for each climb. i take it wherever i go on a trip and am gradually ticking them off as i go. encourages you seek out and ride the hills. I do the alps every year with some of the tdf climbs and some in this book match them in difficulty if not length. oxnop scar and a few others in yorkshire for starters. Just ordered the follow up and can,t wait to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good as the First Book 28 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I loved the first book and this one is just as good.
The only negative is that Simon Warren tries to get the whole country covered...the East Anglian climbs are really not worthy of being included. The other 98 are excellent choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for my son 27 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son is a road biking nut, and someone at the Cycling Club recommended this, he mentioned it to me, so I bought him both books, anything to encourage his interest. He was delighted when they arrived and has spent some looking at both, has ambitions now where he wants to take his bike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good!! 23 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very small (excellent to carry in the back of cycling jersey's). The book is also very comprehensive and very interesting, brilliant product for cyclists that love the hills!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good sequel 1 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have the first Greatest Climbs & the follow up is just as informative & full of great challenges. Simon's passion for climbing shines through & is worryingly contagious. Would like to say that I have done all 200 climbs, or even a respectable percentage, but I am a long way short of that. What the books have done, is encouraged me to study maps of my local area looking for climbs which has resulted in a splendid summer of cycling.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first hundred
If you've got the first book, with hills 1-100, then you know what to expect. This book, documenting hills 101-200, is just as good.
