5.0 out of 5 stars an honest read from an honest bloke, 14 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great true tale of Froomey's rise from the heart of Kenya to the top of Ventoux. It gives Chris's view of his rise to fame, his relationship with Wiggo and his final victory in the 100th Tour de France. A very enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal guide for cycling across parts or the whole of France, 30 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a super book. The way it is organised allowing you to select parts or all of the route across France is ideal. The guide is well written and the book is laid out with notes and photos in a very clear to read font set.

Lost Lanes: 36 Glorious Bike Rides in Southern England (London and the South-East)
Price: £9.25

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read and follow the routes, 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice gentle read as many reviewers state. Be aware the Kindle version does not contain the photos referred to by others so the book should be and is less expensive than the printed edition. The online resources to the maps and gpx files work well and I had no problem downloading and importing the routes into my Outdoors GB app on my iphone/ipad. Many of the routes follow the National and regional recommended cycle routes so are easy to find. The idea of seeking feedback from other cyclists is good and should lead to an improved version of the book sometime in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bike case, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case fits very securely with a safety mount onto either handle bar stem or bars themselves. The iPhone 5 works beautifully through the case and is very clear to see. I replaced a cheaper, less convenient case and I am well pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a lot of interesting and detailed facts of our capital, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I worked many years in the City and often wondered where the some of the alley-ways led to and how the streets and the sqares/courtyards got their names. Well this super book reveals all. Either walk the City and explore with the book or, as I am doing, use Google Earth to find the street on your PC, Mac, tablet or phone. Then see what the author has described. Absolutely fascinating book and great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and functional, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A low cost but functional extension set. I wanted a surge protection device that allowed me to individually power up and off devices. This meets the bill perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile and good sound, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very easy to set up and looks good in front of my 40 inch Sony Bravia. Sound is very good, especially when on low volume with speech enhancement. Ability to play all my music from the arm chair is very good. One to watch is you need IOS 6 to play music direct from your IOS device unless you have a network attached file server (I have an Apple Time Capsule). All in all, a superb piece of kit and whilst it is expensive, its functionality and performance make it well worthwhile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for low water pressure, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After trying several different shower heads in a low water pressure system, I found his one with it's 4 settings to provide a reasonable force of water to our bath mixer tap. Quite a large head but the settings allow a small to large spread.
