5.0 out of 5 stars Tour of Britain tour de force, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great British Bike Rides: 40 Classic Routes for Road Cyclists (Paperback)
The previous two reviews say it all really, and far better than I could. But I've just got to add my own "bravo!" for this brilliant book. My cycling days are far behind me but nostalgia is an on-going condition. This book vividly details some "happy highways where I went" and many more where I didn't or couldn't. I can now re/live them in the maps and descriptions which encapsulate wonderfully the great British landscape in all its moods, beauties and challenges. The technical info is SO impressive and the author's attention to detail demands my respect. The numerous photos, too, are splendid. It's a tour of Britain by bike and equally a tour de force. Congratulations Dave Barter.

Incidentally I pre-ordered this book from Amazon only to find I had to wait 2 extra weeks beyond publication date. Wish I'd ordered it from the publishers. Come on Amazon, keep up, pedal harder!

Is this book any good for planning a cycle tour from Scotland to Portsmouth? Does it show details of forests etc that run alongside the bike routes. Thanks in advance.

Hilary, it's really meant as a list of day routes and as such may be not exactly what you are after. I would look at the Sustrans website and the national cycle network routes for this information.
