Cotswolds Mountain Biking: 20 Classic Rides
The Cotswold Hills stretch across the counties of Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, and extend into parts of Wiltshire, Somerset, Worcestershire and Warwickshire. Cotswolds Mountain Biking – 20 Classic Rides by Tom Fenton reveals all on the excellent and varied mountain biking tucked away in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
This book from leading MTB guidebook publisher Vertebrate Publishing features 20 classic rides between 14km and 77km in length, suitable for mountain bikers of all abilities – many of which are within easy reach of major towns and cities, including Birmingham, Coventry, Worcester, Gloucester, Oxford, Banbury, Swindon, Cheltenham and Bristol.
Each ride is described with easy-to-follow directions and is plotted on clear and easy to use Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 mapping. Also included with each ride are details of distance, timings and difficulty gradings, plus refreshment stops and local knowledge.
A Bonus Section includes details of the riding at Leckhampton Hill and Forest of Dean, plus top tens for descents, climbs and singletrack. A detailed appendix features information on places to eat, drink, stay and have your bike repaired!
