5.0 out of 5 stars
Brilliant book, 6 Oct 2012
I have recently taken up mountain biking again after a few years away and have MBR Magazine for this type of thing previously but I wanted to explore more natural trails close to where I live. So, after searching the internet I settled on this book mainly due to the excellent reviews. I wasn't disappointed. It gives loads of options for different rides with varying degress of difficulty. The introduction to each ride gives you a feel for the type of ride you are taking on and both the directions and maps are clear enough. Personally, I always take an OS map with me because, to be fair to a book of this size, it cannot reproduce the map detailing needed to be absolutely foolproof. That said, I haven't got lost yet but I prefer the insurance policy of OS. I also like the additional useful information on parking, pubs, cafes etc. Superb book and as a result I've bought four other MTB books by this publisher in this series.
