Lost Lanes Wales: 36 Glorious Bike Rides in Wales and the Borders
The second in the Lost Lanes series of cycling guidebooks is a celebration of cycling in Wales and the English border counties of Cheshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire and western Gloucestershire. It takes the form of 30 original guided rides and six fantastic organised rides, with detailed ride descriptions, evocative photography and comprehensive online resources including GPX files for GPS navigators and smartphone apps and turn-by-turn route sheets. The rides take in all the most scenic areas of Wales, from the towering peaks of Snowdonia to the rugged coastline and sandy beaches of Pembrokeshire, the big sky country of mid-Wales and the rich, rolling landscape of the Marches.
