Product Description

About the Author

I have walked the hills from the age of about 7, and cycled for as long as I can remember in my native Yorkshire and the Lake District, and abroad in the Alps and Pyrenees. When the new sport of mountainbiking emerged in the eighties it seemed a natural progression - a combination of two of my favourite activities. But where to go? On hiring bikes on a holiday near Aviemore with my wife, son and daughter there was no information available other than the OS maps. We soon got our own bikes and I set out to compile a guide to the tracks around the Cairngorms, more as a personal notebook at first. Once completed, I approached Cicerone Press. Walt Unsworth, the then owner of Cicerone, immediately gave me a contract for "the first three" books. Untill then it was never my intention to write more. The rest is, as they say, history! The completion of the series of nine books took 10 years during which time I was fortunate enough to retire (ridiculously early!) from my main business in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry. We soon moved to Beauly in the Highlands of Scotland where work on the last 6 or 7 books continued. Sadly, my first wife died in 1999, just before the final book was printed. I have since re-married and will soon be moving to Cumbria to be closer to family and friends and to re-visit my beloved Lakeland Hills. My writing activities have continued in the sphere of walking guides up in the Scottish Highlands but who knows what the future in Cumbria holds?

Format: Paperback
Mr Koch-Osborne's books are a must for anyone wanting to explore the Scottish Highlands. I have mainly used them for planning and researching Mountain biking routes. Koch-Osborne provides descriptions of the trail conditions allowing you to tell which bits of a particular route may or may not be ridable. He also often includes tracks, paths and access information which don't feature on OS maps allowing you to link up/and/or avoid tempting looking routes.

Highly recommended!
