The problem with "mountain biking" is that it means different things to different people. If, for you, it means getting into some nice countryside with good views and navigating your way round on roads and tracks - like a country walk only on two wheels - then this is the book for you.

If, instead, mountain biking means singletracks and berms and jumps and trying to find ohmygodi'mgoingtoofastandgoingtohitthattreeanddie downhills, then you should look elsewhere. I'd recommend either Vertebrate Graphics' Dark Peak and White Peak Mountain Biking guides or, better still but covering fewer routes, the individual maps from Finders UK in Knutsford.

This is a fairly new book, published last year in May yet the photos look dated almost '70s! Still the route descriptions and the accompanying detail are excellent. Every route is classified in to varying degrees of difficulty and the author has graded them according to what he believes are the better routes. There's also info on length of route, percentage off-road,where to get refreshments and so on. Overall the route descriptions were superb but the maps are very basic so an OS Landranger map is advisable.
The thing that disappointed me more though, was the choice of routes, the majority of them had a large percentage of road riding and out of 24 routes there were only 4 that had more than 60% off road. This is unfortunate if you're like me and prefer cycling completely off-road.
In all I would recommend this book if you are not too bothered about cycling on miles of singletracks or technical downhill, otherwise look elsewhere.

I love this little book. The rides are long enough to hold a bit of a challenge - 2 to 4 hours long, and the timings given are pretty accurate for my level of cycling. All the rides are legal - i.e. bridleway or road, and no ambiguity about this which I find helpful - the last thing I want is a landowner or walker friction when I'm out to have a bit of fun. Descriptions are great, including things like just rideable, or a test of stamina and skill, all of which warn me what I'm getting into. Having so much fun with this that it's a bit of a goal now to complete all the rides in the book.

Things do change and date though so some of the text descriptions have had me scratching my head - in honesty I wouldn't go out without having the OS map in my rucksack to back this up.
