First came the book, followed by a video series to go with your virtual training, then came a poster, and now there's a 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs app.

Cycling Weekly contributor Simon Warren has developed both an Apple and Android app that enables you to ride the 100 climbs and sync to Strava at the same time.

The easy-to-use app locates the nearest climbs to you via your phone's GPS and via the link with the Strava, it gives you a 100 Climbs score, detailing how many you have ridden.

Just like the book and on-screen on the videos, all the essential facts are in the app: length of the climb, height gain, maximum gradient, steepest gradient and a profile of the ascent.

Warren also provides a rating of each climb out of 10 (or in Beaclach-na-Bà's case, 11/10).

The app costs £5.99 and is available from both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Through Strava, the app details how many times you have climbed the ascent, making it easier to see if you have got slower or faster between your attempts.

Chris first started writing for Cycling Weekly in 2013 on work experience and has since become a regular name in the magazine and on the website. Reporting from races, long interviews with riders from the peloton and riding features drive his love of writing about all things two wheels.

Probably a bit too obsessed with mountains, he was previously found playing and guiding in the Canadian Rockies, and now mostly lives in the Val d’Aran in the Spanish Pyrenees where he’s a ski instructor in the winter and cycling guide in the summer. He almost certainly holds the record for the most number of interviews conducted from snowy mountains.
