Bikepacking: Mountain Bike Camping Adventures on the Wild Trails of Britain by Laurence McJannet
‘One of the most satisfying guides to mountain bike adventure camping we’ve ever read.’
If you’ve never heard of bikepacking, the idea is pretty simple: pack your stuff into a giant rucksack, and set off on the adventure of a lifetime on your bike. It’s an awesome way to stay fit, and the sight and feel of the wild flying past as you gun it down some mountainside, are, we think you’ll agree once you try it, the experiences we all really live for in life.
McJannet details 30 of the best multi-day rides across the UK, covering both city escapes and extreme wilderness rides. There are trails for the whole family to enjoy, plus a few of the more wild rides up mountains and deep into the woods. All of the routes come with map guides, so you’re good to go with just the one book, and most of the routes are easily accessible at their starts by train or car.
Technical rides, long and short family-friendly routes, coastal adventures and winter rides are all featured in Bikepacking: Mountain Bike Camping Adventures, and are written in McJannet’s engaging, knowledge style.
