Great book, but not as a companion "Around London",
This review is from: Philip's Cycle Tours Around London South (Paperback)
I bought the Ordnance Survey book "Cycle Tours: 24 One-day Routes Around London" from Amazon and I am delighted with it. When I saw the Philip's "Around London South" I snapped it up, hoping that it would contain more routes.
Sadly "Around London South" contains, with a single exception, the same South-of-London off-road trails found in the "Around London" book. While I expected a bit of overlap, but 7 quid for one new route is a little much.
Having said that, if you don't own any of these books, then I'd certainly recommend them. "Around London" has rekindled my interest in off-road cycling. The guides contain road and off-road routes that are well described and take into account the changes in terrain brought about by the changing seasons.
A great series - but too much overlap!
