Simon Warren's 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 and by the end of the year was club hill climb champion. Although not having what it took to beat the best he found his forte was racing up hills and so began his life long fascination with steep roads. Trips were planned and pilgrimages made to find ever steeper and longer slopes which culminated in the publication of his first book, 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs. Following its 2010 release Simon has now written 11 further guides to hills from Scotland to Italy together with appearing on numerous TV shows, hosting talks, guiding rides and spending hours and hours riding up hill.
