Looks like it has nice nice routes
on 17 June 2013
It's got a lovely conversational style in its writing, and the routes are well laid out. My two gripes (suggestions really) is that each route should have a tiny map of Britain and a red dot marking its location. I've lived here 8 years, and still am not that familiar with the locations of even some of the larger towns (part of the reason I got a bike, and this book is to visit them!) so I get a little lost when browsing.
The other hand feature would've been an overview of the routes on a large map of britain - linking to what page the route is on.
Essentially my complaint is about indexing, rather than content.
I've done a 1700 mile tour of Britain based largely off routes in this book, and when it says a road is lovely, it's right. It's worth it for their equivalent of the route 66.
