5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 22 April 2013
What a stunning book! I was after a book that would give me some fresh challenges for the year ahead, and this book gives them in abundance. Although I think they'll take me more than a year to bag! The format of the book is brilliant with clear detailed descriptions of the route along with further information about when's best to ride to avoid things like busier traffic times. I particularly like the info on the climbs showing exactly what's to be expected (or dreaded!), showing gradients and lengths.

It's also good that you can download the GPX files for your GPS computer which makes following the routes even simpler allowing you to focus more on the stunning scenery than either road signs or your ever increasing heart rate.

This truly is a stunning, inspirational book which should keep even the most experienced cyclists busy for a while. I can't wait to get out and get ticking- well some of the short-cut versions anyway.
