Great Britain Mountain Biking – book review



WRITTEN by Tom Fenton with terrific photos from Trossachs-based Andy McCandlish this book portrays in facts, figures and sheer enthusiasm the incredible wealth of mountain biking that’s contained within these small islands of ours.

From the Isle of Wight to the Outer Hebrides the book’s authors appear to have ridden every bit of wild country in the land, and there are some really adventurous itineraries to whet the appetite of the most intrepid.

Within the pages of the book you’ll find hundreds of kilometres of singletrack, high remote passes, footpaths and trails and even mountain summits – there doesn’t appear to be any kind of terrain where these guys won’t ride a bike.

All together there are very detailed descriptions of 56 different routes, complete with map details, travel information and suggestions for other rides in each area. Add to that info about accommodation, bike shops, trail centres and more. And to top it off some of the most stunning mountain biking photographs I’ve seen anywhere.

This is a book every mountain biker in the land should own. It’s published by Vertebrate Publishing and costs £25.
