The stunning photographs, hand drawn maps and descriptive text is informative and the book is clearly a labour of love that looks good on any coffee table.
It is the perfect gift for the cyclist in your life, but also for non-cyling types who enjoy exploring the english countryside via the odd pub and B&B.
I feel inspired to get back on a bike in order spend a few wonderful weekends with my boyfriend exploring new corners of England, dropping in on a few local pubs and tea rooms on our way.
The rides are written up like mini travel articles which bring each place to life, so you kind of feel like you know the characters that you'll bump into - can't wait to meet `Merlin' the dog in Wareham! My only gripe would be that it would be good to have OS grid refs for each ride, so you can plot it all on a map before you go...I just need to get out on my bike now
On the downside the routes are all pretty short (8-16 miles or so). The journalistic style makes a nice change from the 'left here, right there' approach of most cycling guides but the write-ups do inevitably becoming a bit repetitive with endless references to views, cream teas and lovely lunches.

There's lots of pretty pictures, descriptions of cafes but the routes themselves are poorly described. Why not even post some GPX or KML files on the accompanying website?Published 22 months ago by V. A. Smith
Good book. I would have liked to have seen a few photos though. If that doesn't bother you I reckon it's worth buying for info.Published on 13 Dec. 2013 by Maffs
