HARVEY Maps Production Manager, Chris, takes us through some of his memorable routes.

1. Loch Katrine: a classic ride on virtually traffic free road along the loch shore. Plus the opportunity to make the return leg on a steamship!

3. Rosedale Chimney Bank: a brute! Ive never actually made it up the hill without getting off and pushing. Yorkshire is well known for its multitude of excellent cycle routes. This is a lesser known climb.
