Great Book!!, 20 Nov. 2012
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.
