South East Mountain Biking
Ridgeway & Chilterns
Author: Nick Cotton
Format: Paperback (216pp)
Date:Monday, 18 February 2008
South East Mountain Biking Ridgeway & Chilterns is a compact guide to some of the best mountain bike riding in Southern England, west of London.
The Chilterns and the area either side of the Ridgeway west of London are criss-crossed with byways and bridleways, allowing you to escape onto fine woodland tracks and out into big open chalk country, with panoramic views over the Vale of the White Horse and the Thames Valley.
This guide contains 24 routes from 18 to 38km long, many of which can be linked to make much longer rides. Each is described with easy-to-follow directions and details of distance, grade of difficulty, refreshment stops and is accompanied by specifically designed mapping.
The Bonus Section includes Top Tens for climbs and descents, and suggestions for 'Mega Rides' with further information about finding places to eat, drink and stay.
