Sustrans’ new circular day rides guidebooks
Tuesday 30th January 2018
Sustrans are a great charity and the fact that they have now released some of their recommended routes for the North and South of our great British Isles, we've developed a little soft spot. Would make a great gift for the nomad in you if you're you don't have any birthdays coming up, road trip anyone?!
Sustrans, the walking and cycling charity, has published two new circular day rides guidebooks. These new collections - Sustrans’ Circular Day Rides North and Sustrans’ Circular Day Rides South - each feature 75 routes of between 10 and 45 miles on different terrain across the National Cycle Network, quiet lanes and byways.
The North edition includes routes across northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, while the South edition covers southern England, the Midlands and Wales. From Loch Katrine in Scotland to the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, the Norfolk Coastline in England and medieval castles in Wales, these 150 rides are a great way to explore the UK and take in some spectacular scenery from the saddle.
Sarah Breaux, Retail Officer at Sustrans, wrote the new guidebooks. She said: “It might be cold and dark outside but winter is the perfect time to start planning spring and summer cycle rides, and our new guides are perfect to help you on your way.”
The books are intended for intermediate to experienced cyclists. A map, route profile and text directions are provided for every ride, plus a list of places to eat and drink along the route and nearby bike shops and hire. Most routes begin and end at a train station and GPX navigation files are available to download.
Both spiral bound books are available for £14.99 from Sustrans’ online shop:
