4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good but missing some things, 22 Aug 2008
This review is from: Adventure Cycle-touring Handbook: Worldwide Cycling Route and Planning Guide (Adventure Cycle Touring Handbook: A Worldwide Cycling) (Paperback)
I really enjoyed reading this book. It's very easy to read and has many interesting contributions from various well know cycle tourists.

The other reviews for this book are very fair and comprehesive, so this is short!

The maintenance section at the back of the book covers the basics, but some things are missing like how to fix a split tyre, broken rack or braze ons. Broken racks and broken braze ons do get mentioned (as well as advise to carry small hose clips) but i could not find how to actually fix these things!

There are many tours in all sorts of exotic places, but as the 3* reviewer states, most people start with Western Europe or North America. These routes a not covered particularly in depth. I want to start with "lands end to john o groats" rather than cycle London to Cairo.

These are fairly minor points, so all in all I recommend this book as an entertaining and informative read. It is UK focussed too (e.g prices and brands) which is a bonus.
