Book Review – 'Pennine Bridleway' by Hannah Collingridge

Pennine Bridleway Hannah Coleridge

Pennine Bridleway by Hannah Collingridge is a guidebook to this exceptional off-road National Trail. It takes you on a multi-day off-road cycling adventure from Derbyshire through the Yorkshire Dales to Cumbria, following the Pennine Hills.

The pocket-sized book documents the big ride—split into four sections: each section including detailed directions, stunning photography, as well as information on points of interest along the route—bringing the history and landscape of the trail to life.

Researched, ridden and written by mountain biking expert and freelance writer Hannah Collingridge, the guidebook is clear and easy to use; with embedded Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions, details of distance, ascent and difficulty gradings, bikepacking hints and tips and local knowledge. There is also a comprehensive introduction and a detailed appendix, as well as a link to downloadable GPX files.

This route only first came to my attention through Hannah's book, but it has made me eager to head north to The Pennines to explore this beautiful trail.

A great UK bikepacking adventure to add to your bucket list. Pennine Bridleway is a superb guidebook.
