'The South Pennines guide book introduces you to the wilderness and urban trail networks of Kirklees & Calderdale, Airedale & Wharfedale and Lancashire. New riding centres: Stainburn, Healey Nab, Gisburn Forest and Lee Quarry mix freely with classic Pennine riding on London Road, around Rivington Pike and on Ilkley Moor.
This guide contains 26 meticulously researched and legal routes; most with short, medium and long modular options detailing routes that can be full day epics, half day rides or a short blast. The modular design means you can choose from over 70 separate possible rides to suit the weather conditions on the day, or simply how much of a ride you fancy. Each route is accompanied by excellent, evocative photography clearly detailing what you can expect to see on route. Ordnance Survey mapping, gradient profiles, clear route descriptions and informative text make planning your ride a pleasure in your living room and routes easy to follow from your pocket, on the trail.'
