Last year, were approached regarding an ambitious new book project, and asked if we could contribute some photography. We said yes and we’re glad we did, as the result is the excellent Good Mountain Bike Guide; a comprehensive guide to where you can ride across England and Wales that, almost literally, leaves no stone unturned! It’s a rich look at where you can ride on open trails across the country, with detailed rides and route ideas, and is as fascinating just to leaf through as it is useful for planning your next trip or local loop. And we have 10 copies to give away as spot and draw prizes at both the South Downs Way Lemming and MaXx Exposure. So everyone who enters each event has a chance of going home with a good new book, along with their finishers t-shirt.
