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.

A popular walking guide to the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), at the top of Morecambe Bay in Cumbria and Lancashire, north west England, overlooking the Lake District. 21 day walks are described and hand-illustrated, between Carnforth, Holme, Milnthorpe and Arnside, climbing wooded hills and limestone escarpments with views of the Lake District fells, visiting nature reserves including Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, crossing the Bay itself to Kents Bank and following the canal. Many are the visitors who have speeded past to more renowned National Parks, who, when they do turn off to Silverdale or Arnside, wonder why they didn't come to this beautiful area before. The combinations of rocky coastal scenery, woodland and rough limestone hills either side of the M6 in north Lancashire, make this a paradise for walkers. There is an extensive network of well walked paths through an intricate rocky landscape, a joy to explore. The area is renowned for its flora and fauna, its historic buildings and interesting geological features. Walks are between 2 and 8 miles but packed with interest, taking longer than their mileage implies, and can be combined for longer days.
