A nice guide for family cycling,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cycling in South West England (Paperback)
This book describes 28 nice cycling routes in South-West England, ranging from 10 to 20 miles in length. For families planning a holiday in this region, it makes an ideal reference for selecting a route compatible with their location and ability. Each route includes a page-sized OS type map and, where relevant, a street level map of towns and cities. If this meets your requirements then look no further; this book is ideal.
For those planning a long-distance ride across the West Country, perhaps following the Cornish Way or NCN Route 3, this book isn't ideal. Although the routes are listed roughly West-East, there is no continuity from one to the next. Also, the stated surface conditions for each route fail to identify what's compatible with a road/touring bike and loaded panniers. This book isn't intended for this type of cyclist but it's good to know that before buying it.
