About the Author:

SIMON WARREN has lived and breathed bikes and cycling for over 20 years. He's won a few races, held a first category racing licence and competed - and struggled - at the highest level in the UK, but most of all he loves to ride his bike uphill. He spent seven years working as a designer at Cycling Weekly before leaving to broaden his horizons in 2003, although he still regularly contributes event reports to the magazine. He works in publishing and lives with his wife and daughter in London N16. His other titles for Frances Lincoln are 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs (9780711231207) and Another 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs (9780711232655).
