5.0 out of 5 stars A good, fun book for the everyday cyclist!, 19 July 2010
By 
This review is from: Britain By Bike (Hardcover)
I dragged my old mountain bike out of the shed last summer and have since spent many weekends touring the great British countryside on two wheels. Now this book has bought to my attention some great new routes (particularly Old Warden in Bedfordshire) and a history of cycling that I previously knew so little about. Thoroughly recommended!

Like you I have a similar bike ,they are good for going down tracks and round parks. But since mid- 80's a whole generation have grown up with full sus, or hardtail doing many miles on road. The sheer finesse of a good lightweight steel (eg Reynolds 520) Tourer would probably make more and longer journesy easier, and the drop bars give multiple positions which flat mtb's don't unless you add on. Can't afford a hand-built like Woodrupp or Bob Jackson but a properly fitted off the peg like a Dawes Clubman becomes part of you, rather than perched on (my) mtb. I suppose a tourer looks 'old fashioned' but they fit like a glove and so 50 miles is nothing. I suppose to keep a hint of mtb you could get a tougher cyclocross.

Drop handle bars don't suit everybody, nor does having to ride bent over and grope around your knees somewhere to change gear. I fell off my touring bike many times and have the scars to prove it! As someone who only learnt to ride a bike as an adult, the invention of the mountain bike was a life-saver - possibly literally! If you like your tourer, fine - happy cycling to you. But I would have given up cycling altogether if it weren't for my Trek mtb.
