'Compact and nicely designed.'
'The routes were all very consistent at their grade, with the vast majority of riding off-road, and covering a variety of surfaces. The OS maps are excellent and the written instructions very clear. The different routes access very different areas and take you well off the beaten track.'
– Amazon reviewer
'Brilliant rides. All the car parks you start from are free! Took me on loads of routes in my local area I never knew existed. Fun rides.'
