20 multi-day off-road cycling adventures.
Charlie says… I instantly recognised a picture of Kimmeridge bay in my old stomping ground. Its a stunning winter surf spot, and my ashes will probably get scattered there, In order to quickly evaluate the book I swiftly checked out the route in the neighbourhood I know inside out. Great news, this book has totally nailed it with the best trails for both big views and also the best riding. Much of the route is in the Dorset Dirt Dash event… and that route is the absolute best of the local trails.
The campsite recommendations are spot on. And they didn’t skip the best pub in the world, The Square & Compass. That pub has hosted Charlie Kelly, Joe Breeze, myself (more than once), half of the Surly Bikes workforce, Stephen Hawking and has even been the finish line for the Single Speed National Champs. So, this book looks like it is a shortcut to the best overnight cycling in the country. I am very impressed.
