Event description

Description

Join Simon Warren, author of the famous 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs and star of ITV's 'The Cycle Show', as he tells us how he fell in love with cycling and most importantly fell in love with riding uphill. From his first adventures in his home county of Nottinghamshire to criss crossing the island in search of ever steeper gradients to compile his many guides. As we are on the eve of the 2018 Tour de Yorkshire, Simon will also give his opinion of the climbs on this year’s race and pick out his top five places to spectate, the places where you’ll see the best pain faces!

About Simon Warren
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 it’s 2010 release Simon has now written 11 further guides to hills from Scotland to the Pyrenees together with appearing on numerous TV shows, hosting talks, guiding rides and spending hours and hours riding up hill.

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask Simon questions on the evening and talk hills and pain!

Hard copy tickets are available at The Commute and Wheelbase in Ilkley.

Simon is also partnering up with Yorkshire Velo Tours to offer guided rides in Yorkshire.
