The best-selling book 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs has been turned into a high-definition video (opens in new tab). Each of the climbs has been filmed using a bike-mounted camera to provide a rider's-eye view of Britain's finest ascents.

Climbs such as Hardknott Pass, Rosedale Chimney and Bealach-na-Ba - and yes, Box Hill - are included in all of their full-colour glory captured using a wobble-free, gyroscopically-stabilised 1080p HD camera.

In total, the footage runs to 18 hours and 15 minutes over 325 kilometres of roads.

The videos are ideal for those wishing to spice up their winter turbo sessions, for those who want to check out climbs for an event or sportive, or for those who simply want to see what some of Britain's best hills look like without actually breaking into a sweat.

On-screen stats show you a map, gradient, time, power and other essential information.

It's a pretty impressive undertaking for the makers to have filmed all of these climbs in such great detail.

All 100 climbs can be downloaded for £24.99, or individual chapters (regions) are available for £3.99. The videos can be bought and downloaded via Vimeo (opens in new tab).

The video footage is also available on DVD.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
