Lots of extra stuff that's not in the program. Interestingly he's funnier when he writes stuff down and has had a chance to consider what he says.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, 29 Nov. 2015
The style was pitched just right, bit of history, bit about the ride, good maps and great pictures. It conveyed the personality of Wales as a country and a Landscape brilliantly and the bits of history made it read like an interesting book that celebrated exploring Wales by bicycle. I've ridden several of the rides and found them highly enjoyable.
Thoroughly inspiring stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Little masterpiece, 27 Oct. 2013
A simple story that captures the spiralling out of control of events that is getting lost in the wilderness, and the blurring of reality and imagination that is a child's mind.
As with some of Stephen Kings short stories the less supernatural nature of this tale just goes to reinforce Kings true talent as a fantastic storyteller.
Highly reccomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A joyous guide to cycling in the English countryside., 28 April 2013
A practical yet inspirational selection of rides that offer a glimpse of some of the best scenery in the southeast.

The photos are beautifull, and give an excellent insight in to some of the things to see as you cycle through the countryside.

It's easy to use as each route has printable maps, a downloadable route sheet or a GPS file. I've done a couple of these rides and really enjoyed them, (downloaded the routes to my GPS) looking forward to doing some more this summer.

Cycling in the U.K isn't all about lycra, High vis and energy gels, it's also about getting out of the city and into the lanes, enjoying the countryside, a pub lunch and maybe some tea and cake. It's easy to forget what great cycling is available on our doorstep, this book acts as a reminder.

Lovely book with some excellent photos.
