Product Description:
Biking Britain end to end - one day at a time and at your own page - is within the reach of most reasonably fit cyclists, and an unforgetable experience! This book tells you how to do it, as Britain is the perfect place to explore by bike - a compact island with a vast network of quiet roads linking charming villages and historic sites. The book is divided into two innovative sections:

Part I

* details for cyclists coming from overseas

* when to tour

* specifics of cycle touring in Britain

* background information for beginner bicycle tourers

Part II: The Journey

* split into 21 stages laid out in an innovative 4-page format

* photos, maps, an elevation profile and route descriptions

* details on intermediate stops, so stages can be tailored to ability levels

* listings for campgrounds, hostels, bed and breakfasts, and hotels, information centers and bike shops

* photos from each 25 miles along the route for an idea of the countryside and road conditions

* history of places along the tour

This is a great ride for cyclists seeking their first extended ride, or for experienced tourers looking for interesting alternatives. It's also a great read for armchair cyclists.

Route Britannia, the Journey South: A Spontaneous Bicycle Ride through Every County in Britain

By Steven Primrose-Smith

Rosebery Publications
Released: 2016-12-08
Kindle Edition (284 pages)

Route Britannia, the Journey South: A Spontaneous Bicycle Ride through Every County in Britain
 
Product Description:
Tired of seeing Britain continually attacked by the media, politicians and the British themselves, Steven Primrose-Smith wants to see it for himself. All 97 counties of it! Surely it can't be as bad as everyone tells him.

After twenty years living abroad, he thinks the time is right to search his homeland for the best of British using new eyes, those of a foreign tourist, and in the only way he knows how – by bicycle. Armed with a list of recommendations gathered from friends and strangers alike and the most spontaneous of routes, he pedals 5,000 miles through damp English country lanes, soggy Welsh moorland and windswept Scottish mountains. He gets wet quite often.

Following on from the success and irreverent style of both No Place Like Home, Thank God and Hungry for Miles, Steven seeks out the quirky in the people he meets, the places he visits and the food he eats. Can his initial store of positivity survive the journey, or will it be ground down by the traffic, the weather and his British, vegetable-free diet of beer, pies and pork scratchings?

In this, Book 1, The Journey South, Steven travels from Merseyside to Warwickshire, through the whole of Wales, the West Country, the south coast and to London.

Armed with a bag of googly eyes, he meets a poetry-prescribing nurse, stumbles across Hilda Ogden's lawnmower, has his footwear stolen by foxes, discovers some very special Mexican fleas, crashes the TARDIS and visits dozens of British capitals, including its infidelity capital, its boob job capital and its dogging capital. He experiences "real" Britain – the good and the bad – its Morris dancers, pie 'n' mash and the pinnacle of British culture, a good old-fashioned street fight.

The concluding part, The Journey North, covering the east of England, Scotland and the north-west of England is now available.

Route Britannia, the Journey North: A Spontaneous Bicycle Ride through Every County in Britain
 
Product Description:
Tired of seeing Britain attacked from all sides, and after twenty years abroad, Steven Primrose-Smith wants to revisit it – all 97 counties – and in the only way he knows how – by bicycle. Surely it can't be as bad as everyone tells him.

In the irreverent style of his bestseller No Place Like Home, Thank God, Steven seeks out the quirky, in people, places and food. Can his initial positivity survive the traffic, weather and his British, vegetable-free diet of beer, pies and pork scratchings?

In this, Book 2, Steven travels through East Anglia, the East Midlands, Yorkshire, the North East of England, the whole of Scotland and the Lake District before finishing in Lancashire.

Steven concludes his 5,000-mile journey through the whole of Britain. He visits the site of a UFO landing, stumbles upon Britain's quirkiest pier and finds a man who converted his caravan into the Titanic. He also eats the best of British regional food, including a clanger, a parmo and a deep-fried Mars Bar and visits dozens of British capitals, including its moaning capital, its porn capital and its incest capital, as well as the happiest place in Britain.
