Wales Mountain Biking – Beicio Mynydd Cymru is a collection of 20 classic Welsh mountain bike rides, between 12 and 50 kilometres in length. Split into three sections, South Wales, Mid Wales and North Wales, this book includes classic mountain bike loops such as The Gap Road in the Brecon Beacons and Pen Trumau in the Black Mountains, routes in Pembrokeshire, and the Gower, the Elan Valley in the Cambrian Mountains, Moel Famau in the Clwydian Hills and classic routes in Snowdonia – including options for the awesome ascent and descent (!) of Snowdon itself. Written and illustrated by Mountain Bike Rider magazine's Wales-based routes expert Tom Hutton, each route is described with easy-to-follow directions and is plotted on clear and easy to use Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 mapping. Also included are details of distance, timings and difficulty gradings, plus refreshment stops and local knowledge. A Bonus Section hops over the border into England, to give the full lowdown on the classic Long Mynd circuit, featuring the legendary Minton Batch singletrack.
Tom Hutton has been mountain biking since the sport’s inception, and as a natural explorer with an almost unhealthy fascination with maps, has been instrumental in documenting routes all over the British Isles. He’s best known as the person behind the monthly pull-out routes section in MBR magazine but also contributes to many other outdoor publications, covering everything from climbing and hillwalking to kayaking. He has written and illustrated a number of guidebooks – including Day Walks in Snowdonia, and has won awards for his pictures. He originally hails from Bristol, but now lives in North Wales where he runs MTB Guiding.
