I'd never ridden this area before properly but with this guide it makes you feel like a local. Great routes, great maps (yes proper maps to follow - no need forn the o/s) and great tips on the areas. Pubs, shops and campsites (very useful) etc. Something for everyone no matter what your fitness - but i esp like the 'Killers' section :o)
Another stonking guide in my ever growing V-graphics collection.
Like I've said these are up to date routes, written by people who ride now rather than outdated guides full of b/w pictures of people carrying fully rigid bikes from the 80's.
It starts off with a bit about biking and then some basic info about biking in he Dales (Maps needed etc)
The routes are divided up into 4 Sections with a 5th bonus section
Section 1 - Classics
Section 2 - Epics
Section 3 - Enduros
Section 4 - Killers
All routes are niceley laid out with Elevation data, total ascent, start / finish info. Pubs in the area and cafes. I have done most of the routes in the book and many more than once.Its written in such an easy to follow way with some humor thrown in for good measure, although the book is expensive, I do feel you get value for money! A great must have for all MTBRS
I will be going back.
The book brings alive this part of the world, it is obviously written by people with a lot of local knowledge and passion for the area, the route choices seem excellent - although I have so far only ridden three routes, they have all been excellent - revealing great mountain biking and great Dales scenery. The mapping is clear and easy to follow, the descriptions work well with the maps, and follow landmarks on the ground, rather than simple left and then right descriptions. The ride introductions are an accurate reflection of the type of terrain and riding to be encountered, and are thus excellent for planning.
On the downside this is the first mountain bike guide I have ever bought, so to be fair I don't have a bench mark to compare it with, also the rides often bisect interesting looking trails, there is often no mention as to where these go and what they are like in the text - something I found frustrating.
All in all though - if you want to go away for a great weekends riding - get this book.
Alongside the routes some lovely photography provides great inspiration and tempts you to explore further, though I can't say the weather is always as good as depicted!
