Simon Warren has updated the 100 Climbs smartphone app to include the climbs from his second book, Another 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs. The extra climbs are available for £2.99 as an in-app purchase.
The new app, once updated on your smartphone, will add the climbs to the lists and maps with which users of the existing version will be familiar, and also now links to VeloViewer for even more in-depth analysis of each climb.
The app update comes ahead of the publication next month of an eight-volume box set showcasing more than 500 climbs throughout Great Britain.
Scotland, Wales and Yorkshire each have dedicated volumes, with the remaining five covering regions within England – the Midlands, south-east, south-west, north-east and north-west.
As with Warren’s previous books, they contain original photography, key statistics and graphics for each of the 545 climbs, and the author’s own description and opinion of each ascent.
Published by Frances Lincoln on 5 October, the box set comprises 1,312 pages over the eight books.
Simon joined road.cc as news editor in 2009 and is now the site’s community editor, acting as a link between the team producing the content and our readers. A law and languages graduate, published translator and former retail analyst, he has reported on issues as diverse as cycling-related court cases, anti-doping investigations, the latest developments in the bike industry and the sport’s biggest races. Now back in London full-time after 15 years living in Oxford and Cambridge, he loves cycling along the Thames but misses having his former riding buddy, Elodie the miniature schnauzer, in the basket in front of him.
