Scottish Lowland Roads


Category: Car Motorcycle Cycling and Flying
Description: Who likes climbing hills? The fight against gravity can leave your legs screaming in pain, your chest burning in agony and your head desperately craving oxygen. Yet there's a great feeling of achievement after taking on a murderous climb and winning. You may not enjoy it at the time, but that feeling always brings you back for more. In this guide, John Mc Kendrick brings together 36 of Southern Scotland's best hillclimbs, including such cycling club favourites as The Nick o' the Balloch, The Crow Road, The Duke's Pass and The Serpentine, as well as many less-known but equally exhilarating and testing climbs - stretching from Glasgow and Ayrshire to Galloway, the Borders, Edinburgh and the Central Lowlands.

Magnify The Cyclists Guide To Hillclimbs On Scottish Highland Roads
The Cyclists Guide To Hillclimbs On Scottish Highland Roads

The Cyclists Guide To Hillclimbs On Scottish Highland Roads


Category: Car Motorcycle Cycling and Flying
Description: There is historical precedent for a book that uses roads to inflict pain on people throughout Highland Scotland. Thanks to the various Jacobite Rebellions between 1688 and 1746 the British Government embarked on an unparalleled programme of road building to enable their troops to quickly cross the length and breadth of the land in order to quell unrest and control unruly clansmen. Under the direction of Generals Wade and Caufield, 1100 miles of roads were constructed in less than fifty years. Inevitably, almost as quickly as they covered the miles in distance, these roads racked up the metres in altitude, as they clambered their way to the lowest point or easiest route through the bealachs that connect the Highland glens that dissect the mountains of Scotland. Following on from A Cyclists' Guide to Hillclimbs on Scottish Lowland Roads, this volume by John H Mc Kendrick features 40 of the best road climbs in the north of the country, many of them on the old military roads. As well as established classics like the Cairn o' Mount, The Lecht, Bealach Ratagan and, of course, the legendary Belach na Ba, there are some lesser-known gems and unusual challenges to keep the adventurous roadie on their toes.

Gironimo!


Category: Car Motorcycle Cycling and Flying
Description: Twelve years after Tim Moore toiled round the route of the Tour de France, he senses his achievement being undermined by the truth about ' Horrid Lance'. His rash response is to take on a fearsome challenge from an age of untarnished heroes: the notorious 1914 Giro d' Italia. History's most appalling bike race was an ordeal of 400-kilometre stages, cataclysmic night storms and relentless sabotage - all on a diet of raw eggs and red wine. Of the 81 who rolled out of Milan, only eight made it back. Committed to total authenticity, Tim acquires the ruined husk of a gearless, wooden-wheeled 1914 road bike, some maps and an alarming period outfit topped off with a pair of blue-lensed welding goggles. What unfolds is the tale of decreipt crock trying to ride another up a thousand lonely hills, then down them with only wine corks for brakes. From the Alps to the Adriatic, the pair steadily fall to bits, on an adventure that is by turns bold, beautiful and recklessly incompetent.

Description: This time tackling the green hills of Wales, Simon Warren picks out 75 more challenges in the third book of our UK regional Cycling Climbs series. Expanding on previously documented routes as seen in bestselling 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs as well as over 50% new material, it's clear the UK still has lots to offer in terms of exciting cycling climbs. Countless incredible climbs span the entire length of Wales; peppered across the exposed peaks of Snowdonia and nestling among the tangled lanes of Denbighshire, reaching across the sparse wilderness of the stunning Brecon Beacons and diving deep into the congestion of the southern Valleys. Climbs such as the Devil's Staircase, the Horseshoe Pass and Bwlch- Y- Groes are etched into cycling history, and there are many lesser known yet equally amazing ascents out there waiting to be unearthed. With scenery to rival anywhere on Earth and roads so quiet you could hear a pin drop, Wales, under clear blue skies, is cycling heaven.

Africa Solo


Category: Car Motorcycle Cycling and Flying
Description: In the spring of 2015, Mark Beaumont set out from the bustling heart of Cairo on his latest world record attempt - solo, the length of Africa, intending to ride to Cape Town in under 50 days. Seven years since he smashed the world record for cycling round the world, this would be his toughest trip yet. And he would set a new mark that would simply break the limits of endurance. Despite illness, mechanical faults, attempted robbery and stone-throwing children, as well as dehydration in the deserts and unprecedented levels of exhaustion, Mark completed the journey in just 41 days, 10 hours and 22 minutes, after cycling 6,762 miles, spending 439 hours in the saddle (sometimes up to 16 hours a day) and climbing 190,355 feet through 8 countries. It was an astonishing journey, and one that will fascinate and grip the reader. From the obvious dangers of Egypt, Sudan and Kenya, over the unpaved, muddy, mountainous roads of Ethiopia, through the beautiful grasslands of Tanzania and Zambia, to riding at night in Botswana in the company of elephants and giraffes, Mark brings Africa to life in all its complex glory, friendship and curiosity, while inspiring us all to question the bounds of what is possible.

Description: In the 1960s, Enzo Ferrari emerged as the dominant force in sports cars in the world, creating speed machines that were unbeatable on the race track. In America, the Ford Motor Company was quickly losing ground as the pre-eminent brand. Henry Ford II saw a solution. He decided to declare war on Ferrari, to build a faster car than anything Ferrari had brought to the track, and to beat him at the world's biggest race, Le Mans. Ferrari was just as determined to see off this challenge from across the Atlantic. With practically no safety regulations in place in the European Grand Prix races, horrific accidents were routine, with both drivers and spectators killed in many races. The stakes were incredibly high, money and men were thrown at the competition, neither Ford or Ferrari would accept anything but victory. The battle to become the fastest in the world truly became a race to the death.
