Footprint continues to carve out a fine niche in the guidebook market, with this sporty guide. A must for footloose cycle fanatics --Ryanair Magazine

About the Author

Rowan Sorrell has been riding his whole life and it is mountain biking. He's been riding in elite for eight years and for the last six has been on the UCI World Cup. His vast knowledge of the UK scene - especially in his home locale of South Wales - is only matched by his knowledge of the Alpine scene, having spent several summer seasons there. His travels on the competition circuit are well documented through his regular work with Dirt Magazine in the UK. Aside from this guidebook, Rowan's main project is Back-on-Track, a company he set up in 2004 with the aim of providing expert consultancy and trail-building skills in the UK. Rowan says his perfect trail is one that is "fun, well designed, and one that makes people want to ride their bikes." He is 27 and lives in Newport. Chris has been riding since the sport first arrived in the country, is generally considered to be one of the early pioneers of professional snowboarding in the UK, and is one the most successful British riders to date, with several British championship titles to his name. Chris is also a keen mountain biker and has co-authored Mountain Biking Europe with championship rider Rowan Sorrell. Chris then spent most of 2008 trawling Britain to write Mountain Biking Britain. Chris formed the ACM Writing Group with Matt Barr and Ewan Wallace, providing specialist and mainstream media titles with boardsports and travel journalism. Ben Mondy is a partner in ACM Writing Group with over 10 years of action sports journalism and editing experience. He was a deputy editor for Australia's biggest surfing magazine, Tracks, for over five years and since moving to Europe in 2005 has contributed to a wide range of mainstream and niche titles covering his love of various outdoor sports. Since his involvement in Mountain Biking Europe his time on the bike has increased dramatically, as, unfortunately, has his time rolling around the dirt in considerable pain. Not to be deterred, he vows to visit every location in the book, or at least die trying. Given his riding style, we'd bet on the latter.

Format: Paperback
If you want to mtb on the continent this book is the best place to start. It gives all the essential info for each country and associated mtb regions, with useful info on xc, freeride & downhill opportunities, transport/shuttle/up-lift options, accomm & restaurant info and climate. Although it doesn't list any specific trails it does provide all the info you need to select a suitable region and points you in the right direction for maps, guides etc. Don't expect a typical guide-book with detailed route descriptions, do expect an inspirational guide to some of the most spectacular mtb regions in Europe... most of which are just an EasyJet ride away (and they even take bikes!!!).

This book is going to be the basis of my next year off work. It is very interesting and laid out well to enable you to visit these places. Some of them I have already visited and the reviews are pretty spot on, others i will now go to and hope the comments are lived up to. Its great to know you can travel the world and visit all these beautiful spots whilst having fun and exercising.

i would recommend this book to anyone planning a mountain bike road trip. whether abroad or in the uk. has excellent information regarding type of riding on offer at each destination and how to make the most of it. there is limited info on accomadation and places to eat. well written and presented, if you weren`t planning an mtb road trip before you read this, you will be afterwards!
