Having learnt about the petit tour de manche I am considering this trip as a cycle camp tour next year (2014). Last year we did a section of the Danube cycleway and used the "bikeline guide" which was all that was needed on that occassion and I had hoped that this Mark Porter book would do the same thing. The book claims to contain "detailed mapping" however this is a misleading statement. I cannot even figure out where the route goes by trying to transfer the sparse information provided and follow it on a french IGN map. What maps the book does provide are poor on detail and there is "no way" that I would use this publication as navigational tool. At the start of the book the authur spends two pages telling what sort of bike to ride and what clothes to wear and yet the all important maps are skimpy on detail. The book satisfies neither the competent long distance cyclists nor the novice beginer. I wish I had not spent £11.99 buying it and my advice would be to put your money to buying IGN 1:25000 maps and mark up the route from imformation freely availble on the internet.

We have just completed the Petit Tour de Manche using this guidebook. The trip was excellent but the guide was not up to the standard of walking guidebooks we have used in the past. The sketch maps are pretty poor and the use of street names in towns which were not readily visible on the ground was not helpful. The layout is not user-friendly and we would not recommend this book. The signage for the route on the roads was generally very good and we relied on those rather than the book.

Browsing amongst cycling literature to inspire my next trip, I found this gem of a book which not only offers invaluable advice on where to eat, sleep and drink from a cyclist's viewpoint but actively got me excited about travelling this fascinating route (Weymouth to Weymouth via Poole,Cherbourg and St Malo). It seems to tick all the boxes in terms of various landscapes (England's stunning Jurassic coast to the much-loved scenery of Brittany and Normandy)and proposes an unbeatable offer for a truly memorable holiday - I hope!

I now can't wait to cycle this route and am now caught in the delicious indecision of choosing from the book's recommendations on how to round off a good day's cycling with an excellent meal and a friendly hostelry.

This is obviously written by someone who knows and loves these areas and routes. Useful maps included to boot.

This book is OK but does not give the level of mapping I expected.
