Researched, ridden and written by mountain biking expert and freelance writer Hannah Collingridge, this cycling guidebook to the Pennine Bridleway National Trail describes a multi-day off-road cycling adventure from Derbyshire through the Yorkshire Dales to Cumbria, following the Pennine Hills.
This big ride is split into four sections; each section includes detailed directions as well as information on points of interest along the route, bringing the history and landscape of the trail into context. There are also three loops, including the Mary Towneley Loop, which can be tackled separately or as part of the main trail. The guidebook is illustrated throughout with stunning action photography by professional photographer Joolze Dymond.
Features clear and easy to use Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions, details of distance, ascent and difficulty gradings, bikepacking hints and tips and local knowledge. There is also a comprehensive Introduction and a detailed Appendix, and a link to downloadable GPX files.
