This book has been well researched and follows quiet country roads with excellent views. The directions are easy to follow, and the ratings of the rides (easy, moderate, strenuous) are realistic. I am yet to follow any of the off-road routes, but the on-road rides are fantastically quiet, and all with good parking, right at the start of the ride, and plenty of pubs for food on route. So get the book and get out and enjoy london! Thanks to Nick Cotton for writing this excellent guide, which means all my other guides are left on the shelf.

We have used this guide for a few different day trips. They have been lots of fun, and would not have been possible without the guide.
Some of the trips are long, so you should be prepared to have a full day of cycling, or take a short cut on a busier road.
All routes are close to major train stations, it seems, and has pubs pointed out (and rated!) along the way.
