OK, I like this series of books and now we have 200 climbs it is a bit more exhaustive now. Maybe there will be a third edition? It's a nice idea, but does it need to be pocket sized? who actually takes this out on the road? Although in someways maybe this is part of the books charm. But, if it was bigger it could have more info, better maps and descriptions of the rides from other routes where applicable. I mean surely the reverse routes over the Wynrose / Hardkott pass could be added and rated seperately - there is no way Wynrose from the west is anywhere nears as brutal as from the east! But it does have a few more interesting climbs and a few beauty's like Great Dun Fell that never made volume 1. I am slightly jealous of the author for coming up with this idea, I mean what a great book to research for any keen cyclist. It is not as good as volume one in terms of climbs, but given that I can't give 3 and a half stars i'll round it up.
I also have one suggestion if there is to be a further voulme, why not pick some of the best rides in the areas? Like for instance, I live in leicestershire and ask anyone the hardest / longest climbs and they probably mention Beacon Hill or Breedon-on-the-hill (short and steep). These do not feature. I know that we won't have climbs like Cumbria, but maybe a little more focus on the areas with less hills might be worthwhile - talking to members of cycle clubs in the various ares would help this.
I have added a photo of the book by a 6 x 4 inch photo and cd remote for scale purposes - enjoy.
