Lance Armstrong und das Rad der Lügen: Juliet Macur, Sportreporterin bei der New York Times, liefert die erste umfassende Darstellung, wie das System Armstrong über Jahrzehnte funktionieren konnte. Kollegen, Kontrolleure, Sportorganisationen, Sponsoren, Medien und selbst die Familie – sie alle wurden von Lance und seinen Helfern belogen, betrogen und unter zum Teil massiven Druck gesetzt. Das Buch, das auf intensiven Gesprächen mit Lance Armstrong und zahlreichen Interviews mit alten Weggefährten basiert, enthüllt die Zusammenhänge des größten Dopingskandal der Geschichte und liefert das beeindruckende Psychogramm eines scheinbar vollkommen gefühlskalten Egomanen. Spannend von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite – nicht nur für Radsport-Fans!

The fifth book in the series of eight UK regional cycling guides from author Simon Warren takes readers (and their bikes) to the shores and skylines of South-West England. Plot a route between any two points in this region and its profile is likely to resemble an upturned saw blade – together, the Cotswolds, the Mendips and the exquisite Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks form a perfect hill climber’s playground. In quiet Cornish fishing villages, on top of Bodmin Moor and cresting the Salisbury Plain are legions of punishingly beautiful roads eager to meet their cycling match, and the very best are between these pages. With a list including the dramatic Cheddar Gorge, Gold Hill, Haytor Vale and the fearsome Porlock, this region is one to relish.

This guidebook describes 30 circular walks in Scotland's Pentland Hills, a range of low summits which extends between Edinburgh and Biggar in South Lanarkshire. Ranging from 3 to 27km (2-17 miles), there is something to suit all abilities from the novice to the experienced hill-walker, with each route showcasing a different aspect of the area's unique character. Step-by-step route description is accompanied by 1:50,000 OS mapping and a wealth of interesting information on the region's rich natural and cultural heritage: its geology, history, wildlife and connections with literary greats such as Robert Louis Stevenson and Sir Walter Scott. Local place names are explained, local folklore explored and there is a helpful glossary of dialect terms. The Pentland Hills can be enjoyed in all seasons. Although the highest summit, Scald Law, stands at 579m, stunning vistas belie their modest elevation: this is a region of grass and heather-clad slopes which rise above picturesque valleys hiding streams and reservoirs. Walking in the Pentland Hills is an ideal companion to discovering great walking on Scotland's most accessible hills.

A guidebook to the rich mix of summer scrambling, rock climbing and winter mountaineering on Scotland's ridges, from the remote Cairngorms to the splendour of the Cuillin. Graceful carved walkways slung between summits, twisted spines of stone - ridges can be the most beautiful of mountain landforms. With elegant lines and giddy exposure, ridge climbs emit a powerful siren call, drawing us out onto the rocks. Life on the edge has a special quality, born of the contrast of empty space all around, and intricate detail in close-up. The crests are strangely irresistible. Scotland's ridges are among the finest mountaineering lines in the country, every one a unique adventure. The variety of these routes reflects the breadth of the mountain experience: a rich mix of summer scrambles, technical rock and challenging winter climbs. This book covers both the popular classics and some obscure gems, aiming to celebrate these thrilling climbs as much as to document them. Along the way it explores landscapes of magnificent diversity, ranging from the remote desolation of the Cairngorms to the seaside splendour of the Cuillin, the great trench of Glencoe to the surreal exhibitionism of the far north. The chosen selection spans the grade range, with routes to suit all levels of ability. Whether an earthbound hillwalker or an accomplished climber, Scotland's ridges cannot fail to stir your imagination.

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.

»Die Besteigung des Rum Doodle« ist eine grandiose Bergsteigersatire aus den 50er Jahren, die niemals auf Deutsch erschienen ist. Das Buch genießt Kultstatus in Alpinistenkreisen und führte sogar dazu, dass ein ganzer Berg in der Antarktis »Rum Doodle« getauft wurde. Erzählt wird die abenteuerliche Geschichte einer Expedition, bei der so gut wie alles schief geht. Der Expeditionsleiter, ein ehrgeiziger und nicht zu beirrender Herr, ist mit der Zusammenstellung eines geeigneten Teams beauftragt. Er rekrutiert sieben sehr britische Gentlemen. Doch bald zeigt sich, dass keiner von ihnen seiner Aufgabe gewachsen ist. Der Navigator findet trotz Einsatz eines Kompasses nicht zum Ort der Vorbesprechung in London. Der Arzt ist ständig krank. Der Hauptkletterer leidet an Antriebslosigkeit. Die Qualitäten des Kochs spotten jeder Beschreibung. Der Übersetzer versteht die Sprache der Einheimischen nicht, und es werden 30 000 statt 3 000 Träger engagiert. Ein Missgeschick jagt das nächste und am Ende, na klar, haben sie den falschen Berg bestiegen.

Tyler Hamilton war ein Naturtalent, einer der leidensfähigsten und zähesten Radfahrer, bei US Postal der zweite Mann hinter Lance Armstrong. In seinem Buch erzählt er, wie die Amerikaner sich in den Neunzigern die Seele aus dem Leib fuhren und dennoch keine Chance gegen europäische Teams hatten, die immer schneller waren, immer noch Luft hatten - bis die Mannschaft anfängt, sich spritzen zu lassen. Er legt offen, wie straff organisiert dieses System war, das das berühmteste Radrennen der Welt zur Tour de Farce werden ließ, wie korrupte Ärzte und skrupellose Teamchefs agieren und Mannschaften zu gut geölten Maschinen wurden. Wie eine ganze Sportart buchstäblich unter die Räder kam und eine Parallelwelt aus Lügen, Angst und Manipulation entstand, die ehemalige Helden als lädierte Wracks zurücklässt.
