Go off road
Pick up the UK’s first book on bikepacking, the latest micro-adventure phenomenon that is enticing those who already enjoy exploring the outdoors with its ability to keep the adventure going at the end of the day with a foray into wild camping. Spend your days going off road with 30 routes that cover a wide range of the UK including the South West, South East, Midlands, Scotland, Wales and the North.
Explore Hampshire, Wiltshire, Bath, Dorset, Snowdonia, Rutland, Norfolk and the Isle of Wight with a guide to the best routes on two wheels, however these routes are not for the faint hearted, as each trail is at least 13.8 miles long, with some covering as many as 51.5 miles. Pit stops along the way, local pubs, inns, bars and tea rooms can be found for a much needed refreshment, as well as campsites to stop off at along the way to keep the adventure going through the night.
Brought to you by author, Laurence McJannet, Bikepacking: Mountain Bike Camping Adventures on the Wild Trails of Britain gives you tips on making your bikepacking escapade one that’s safe, fun and unforgettable. Choose from coastal trails, winter rides, wilderness routes, or for those who desire a challenge, routes up hills and mountains to push you out of your comfort zone.
All you need to make bikepacking your new favourite hobby is a bike, sleeping bag, bed mat and a tent, so take the path less travelled with Laurence and explore the countryside, ancient byways and remote routes that can only be found by going off-road, and finish your days with the sounds of nature around you as you camp under the stars.
