I've ridden about 5 of the rides so far and all of them have been great, I've ended up in scenic villages and wild islands and coastal paths, all within one hour of London on the train. It has proven to be really lovingly researched, which I knew would be the case, having heard the authors podcast 'The Bike Show', which is a really quality show. The book cleverly doesn't bother with route maps inside the book itself, but instead gives a detailed turn by turn instructions and mapping with a printable online link. I used the printable maps provided, turn by turn instructions and occasionally the GPS file included, and I found my way perfectly well. The book itself is really readable without even doing the rides, with some interesting local history and very pretty pictures. It's inspired me to have a lot of staycations, and explore the beautiful landscape and culture just outside my hometown. As the title of my review says, this definitely is the best book for scenic bike rides near London!

Love the photos, narrative and maps in the book...

AND each chapter also comes with a set of online resources too: a detailed one page route summary sheet to print out and take with you (with special folds so it fits in your top pocket), plus full ordnance survey mapping (including 1:50,000 purple Landranger) to either print out or save / email to your phone. There's also a GPX so you can also set up your phone to guide you if you have GPS (though use a lot of battery).

This is a really neat idea and means you don't have to take the whole book with you on a ride.

I have recently bought this and had a good look through it. On the plus side It is nicely presented and has lots of beautiful photographs and so makes an excellent coffee table book and definitely provides the inspiration to get out and explore the beautiful areas that are described in the book. However the book is not really very practical to use. The line drawings in the book are not really sufficient and the text is not good as a guide. The map extracts and route directions should be printed in the book themselves and not on an external website. As for the text, it is a little confused and reads more like a Sunday Supplement travel piece than providing detailed information on the routes covered. I think the writer was a little confused as to whether he wanted to write travel prose ( he tries to be lyrical on occasions) or a practical guide. It is ok but I really suspect that this book will be more popular with armchair travellers than those who really want to get out and about. Nick Cotton's book on Cycle Tours in Kent and East Sussex (though visually less appealing) is much more practical in this regard.

Bought this for my mum and her partner as they are, to put it lightly, cycling enthusiasts. They are really excited about all the new trips they're going to do and love the book.

Great to give as a gift but I would also recommend to anyone wanting to do some trips on two-wheels.

An aesthetically pleasing 'general places to go' kind of cycle book for the coffee table. Rough Pencil drawings for the route and lacks directions, therefore downloading the route to a GPS is a must. Part of the Ripley ride was on a very muddy bridleway, so don't take your road bike.

A beautifully put together selection of rides including inspiring photos and a bit of history of the areas. You only realise the full potential of the book if you download the gpx routes (I imported them to the ride with gps App on my phone easily), as the book itself only gives a vague map of each ride.The rides are all achievable as day trips from London, maybe they're a bit on the short side if you're a serious cyclist (the longest ride is about 70 miles). A great purchase if you are looking for cycling inspiration.

The copy is unpretentiously poetic, the photography totally sizzling, the content compelling - it makes you want to leap onto your two-wheeled steed immediately, and the design super classy. A sophisticated piece of cycling literature that is irresistible. Am so definitely up for pursuing cycling adventures inspired by this triumphant tome this summer. What this book does brilliantly is change your perspective on the potential for London and its surrounds as cycling destinations, whether its linking together's London Parks and green spaces via canal towpath cycling routes, or suggesting sneaky ways of sojourning out into Essex this book should be an essential read for the Capital's urban cyclists in search of some superbly structured microadventures! Great work. More please!

Best cycling book I've got.
- Great routes
- Caters for a London cyclist travelling by train
- Has links to wild swimming locations too

As a result I bought a few other books by the same publisher. Great job!
