“The essential jersey-pocket sized guide to the climbs of the Tour de France”

In this latest instalment in the 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs series, Simon Warren rides, photographs, describes, maps and profiles the 100 greatest climbs of the Tour de France.

Included are the infamous cols that that can make or break a rider’s quest for the yellow jersey and have defined the race from its inception, from Mount Ventoux to the Tourmalet and beyond.

There have been large-format illustrated guides to the hills of the tour published in the past, but 100 Cycling Climbs of the Tour de France brings to life the experience of cycling these hills from the point of view of an amateur cyclist.

This jersey-pocket sized guide is the essential companion for any cyclist or armchair fan looking for the inside track on the climbs of the world’s most famous cycle race.

“Once you’ve opened pandora’s box you won’t be able to show up at your next club run until you’ve bagged them all.” – London Cyclist

“I love this book, partly because Warren has ridden all the hills, much like a wine connoisseur swills a new vintage, and partly because I can keep the book snug in my jacket and mull over the climbs whenever I’m not on a bike.” – Sunday Times
