5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Tom, 4 Aug. 2013
If you're looking to go mountain biking in the Lake District then this is the book for you! Packed with information, this book is well laid out and really easy to read, with simple to follow directions and an OS mapped route you will struggle to get lost. The route profile is a great touch and a new feature for this book it the brilliant use of icons giving you a good idea of what to expect and how to prepare! Even the "NEED TO KNOW" section lets you know how long each route should take with a pub thrown "inn", pardon the pun, for good measure. This book takes out all of the hard work; all you have to do is ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!!, 20 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Wales Mountain Biking (Paperback)
If you are looking to do some amazing riding in Wales and you're fed up with the monotony of trail centres then you won't go far wrong with this book. Following this guide will take you to places you would never expect to see in the UK, from mountaintops to deep valleys and all surrounded by stunning scenery. Be warned though, this is real the thing, give yourself plenty of time for completing these routes, take a fully charged mobile phone, a hand full of cash and don't go alone.

This book is so easy to use and has bags of information including a very useful OS-map for you to follow with difficulty level grading marked along the way. I found that by plotting the routes from the book using digital mapping software (I like to use Memory Map) and uploading it to a GPS device it's virtually impossible to get lost! Having said that, I still carry a map and compass as gadgets have a habit of failing just when you need them.

The pictures in this guide are a really nice touch too and should give you a taster of each route with the added bonus of being able to see the profiles, which have also been included, to give you an idea of what your legs and lungs will endure.

Simply put, here is a collection of some utterly breathtaking rides, informative in an easy to use guide and I look forward to the next book.
