Good route selection but inconsistent guidance.
on 3 July 2000
This book was the basis for a Coast to Coast ride completed by myself and 5 friends. A very tough 4 days riding (and carrying).
The routes selected seem to be the best in the areas crossed and in most cases the choice of one route over another can be seen to be justified. (We looked at several alternatives but reverted to those recommended).
The descriptions in the book are vague in places and and not detailed enough to warrant the title of "route guide". The route cards are adequate for marking the route on maps and are mostly very accurate and helpful. However some inconcistencies in description and waypoint mileages led to confusion.
Generally the only book of this route I am aware of, after much searching, and did the job required. A little bit sparse on detail but then the price is fairly low.
All in all our trip was a great success and was based on this route pack so it can't be too bad!
