Quite simply, this is an amazing book. Nearly 70 rides, all over Britain, lasting from an hour to a full day. But it also includes tours of Scotland, Wales and the south of England. (The book would be worth having for these alone.)

The directions are detailed and very clear - Simon helpfully warns of turnings that are easy to miss and helps out with landmarks, eg turn left after the church, or as soon as you pass the 30 sign. Distances and times needed are given and many rides are done as loops, helpfully bringing you back to where you started. He also suggests other interesting roads in the area.

Very nicely produced too, spiral-bound so it won't fall apart too easily, and small enough for a tank bag, it also has many ideas about things to do and see on the way.

But at the heart of the book is the riding and Simon's a wonderful guide to all the great rides out there, showing you don't have to go far to find them, wherever you happen to live.

This will be my constant companion for years, as I discover new places and revisit old ones. Anyone who wants to have fun on a bike should get one.

I've been cutting out the various routes Mr Weir has been on via RIDE magazine over the past year or so...and here they are in a great, well thought out book..Also with, for example, a 6 day tour of Scotland, 4 day tour of Wales etc. etc. Great layout, plus lots of additional info and easy to read map routing..Bring on the next book covering France..(please..!!)

Excellent, very good range of rides from a few miles to hundreds of miles. Maps very clear and commentary on each ride is descriptive, written in a good style with just the right amount of detail.

Can't wait to try out some of the routes.

I bought 2 of these - one for a mate - and he's as delighted as I am. The author has also done similar routes for France for his national publication and is a top journo. Well pleased.

Amazing book! Took my motorbike and spent about a week riding round Wales and right across England and back again. Used this book for all the planning and combined a lot of the rides, must've done all of or parts of 12 or more of them, fantastic! It gets five stars from me!! The instructions were easy to follow, no motorways and never got me lost. Lovely, winding well surfaced roads. The Brecon Beacon ones in particular!

Some of these routes i think ive seen from from the magazine Ride, so its nice to see them in a nice compact book that you can take with you in your tankbag, instead of having tearouts from the magazines! Would of like to have seen more info on the maps like more food stops, B&Bs and fuel stops; represented by a small coloured symbol say.
Overall all though very happy with the book, especally for the price i paid!
