Great British Gravel Rides
Sold By: Vertebrate Publishing
Charlie says… This is a really rather a brilliant book. I was lucky enough to see the pre-print proofs and I can tell you it is a good read. It lets the GPX file deal with all the nav, so that each route description is loaded with interesting things such as perspectives, history, personal profiles and more… rather than directions. Markus was shown around each route by a local rider, often a legend. You get Jo Burt, Rory Hitchens, Mark Beaumont, Jenny Graham and some chancer called Charlie Hobbs!
I must also add that the photography is excellent. Markus has proved he is more than just relentless legs, he also takes a damned fine snap. When you get the book, flip straight to the jungle shot in the Devon route.
V-Publishing tell us…
Great British Gravel Rides pays homage to the very best gravel cycling across England, Wales and Scotland.
Markus Stitz has curated a collection of 25 routes across Britain – each a favourite route of a passionate gravel cyclist. You can join round-the-world cycling men’s record holder Mark Beaumont in East Lothian, experience a different side of East Anglia with ultra-endurance racers and GBDURO20 winners Josh Ibbett and Gail Brown, embark on a coast-to-coast trip across Scotland with round-the-world cycling women’s record holder Jenny Graham, or see the best of Scottish Borders with diversity in cycling champion Aneela McKenna.
Each route gives an insight into what each cyclist loves about gravel riding – what inspires and motivates them – and why they believe it qualifies as one of Britain’s best gravel rides. A detailed route description of the trail is then provided, including interesting information about the local area, exactly what to expect on the route, details on the best places and attractions to explore, recommendations for the best local cafes and pubs and a list of local bike shops, should they be needed. With inspiring photography showcasing some of the best gravel trails in the UK, as well as bespoke maps and downloadable GPX files for each route, this is the essential companion for any gravel rider.
Whether you want a challenging pedal through the country’s awe-inspiring landscapes or a more leisurely day out in the saddle, let Great British Gravel Rides help you explore the best gravel cycling of Great Britain – your adventure begins here!
