Just received this book and I am generally happy with the purchase. There are a lot of ideas for different routes in the area outlined in the blurb, the book is well laid out, current, and nicely illustrated. The author also provides information on the best maps to use for each route, and provides links to follow if they're available online (but this is just as well, as the "maps" in the book itself are woefully inadequate). Overall, I think that this is a good way of getting ideas for cycle routes that avoid using major roads, but still requires the reader to obtain their own route map and so only merits four stars.
