Mountain Biking Britain guide review
This handy little book of knowledge is designed to be a complete guide to the best places to ride in Britain.
With more than 220 venues covered you get in-depth info on how to get there, what to take with you and local information such as accommodation and cycling clubs. There are helpful hints from the pros too.
It quickly becomes obvious that this book was written by a rider for riders. The information is frank and honest, and it’s a fantastic resource if you’re planning a roadtrip with your mates.
We especially liked the local riders’ testimonials. There’s no better way to get a feel for a place than talking to someone who rides there week in, week out.
Some of the trails listed are on private land, though, which could potentially land you in hot gravy. The photography is a bit dated too. Despite these shortcomings, this is the sort of book that you’ll end up coming back to again and again.
