This king of guidebooks takes you onto a unique trail of traffic-calmed cycle routes in southern England from London to Land's End; ideal if you love cycling, but don't like traffic! A variety of landscapes, a high density of famous English landmarks and word-class cycle routes like the Bristol and Bath Railway Path, Camel Trail, Devon Coast to Coast and Thames Valley Route set you up for very special cycling adventures. Extra routes from the ferry ports of Dover/Harwich and to Plymouth link to the continent.
This guidebook fits easily in a standard handlebar map holder. Special features: 1,200km (940 miles) of routes, 140 maps (rural and urban areas), 500 named facilities (including BandBs, hostels, bunkhouses, campsites bike shops and pubs), detailed directions (local knowledge all the way!) and a fully continuous route, overcoming gaps in Sustrans' National Cycle Network. The maps and directions make navigating easier than ever before; you can be an explorer too!
Eric van der Horst is the author of Cycling in The Netherlands: The very best routes in a cyclist's paradise, an "excellent pannier-pocket guide," according to BBC-TV Coast Presenter and cyclist Nicholas Crane on Twitter. Eric also previously published a Dutch language version of London – Land's End so this guidebook is in fact a second and improved edition!
