Bikepacking England by Emma Kingston contains 20 great multi-day mountain bike adventures across England.
Explore ancient holloways and hunt for fossils in Bridport and the Jurassic Coast, tackle the stiff climbs and spectacular singletrack of the Dark Peak, discover stunning coastal scenery on the Isle of Man or Exmoor or traverse the rolling countryside around the Ridgeway and Chilterns – every corner of England has a different experience to offer.
Each route includes all the information you need to help you plan your ride, points of interest along the route, food recommendations and accommodation options, in addition to stunning photography and overview mapping. Downloadable GPX files of the routes are also available, including optional routes and shortcuts. This book is full of practical tips and advice for both experienced bikepackers and those who want to try it out for the first time, including lots of information on wild camping.
Let Bikepacking England inspire you to get out there on your bike with your tent and enjoy the best bikepacking adventures that England has to offer.
Emma Kingston is an outdoor adventurer, writer, teacher and self-confessed map geek, who lives in Bristol – the UK’s first designated ‘cycling city’. She has ridden, walked, climbed and camped in the South West for over twenty years and her knowledge of the area is enviable. Specialising in mountain biking, she has travelled extensively around the rest of the UK, Europe and further afield in search of ever more flowing singletrack. Emma took up bikepacking when she realised it meant that she could stay out and ride her bike for longer, take the time to explore interesting places off route and eat an outrageous amount of ice cream. Bikepacking England is her first book.
