I love this little gem. If, like me, you'd rather spend time on your bike, rather than slogging through the internet, MTB mags and OS maps to map out a ride in unfamiliar territory, then this handy little compendium is a must-buy. It's also helped me venture out a little further into my local territory, with some really refreshing trail ideas. There's clearly a lot of local knowledge which has gone into compiling the trails in the book. The guide is best used in conjunction with a 1:25000 OS map, but you can get by navigating from the maps inclded in the book. I love the altitude data on the map....almost as useful as the pub locator (also included), but not quite!
