Book Review – 'Bikepacking Wales' by Emma Kingston
I love Wales, and every time I visit, I say I must come back and ride more in this land of green mountains, lush sheep covered valleys, and rugged coastlines. Emma Kingston's new release 'Bikepacking Wales' provides the practical, logistical and inspirational material to make that dream a reality.

With eighteen multi-day mountain bike routes across Wales, outlined in great pictorial and written detail; each adventure includes a route description, points of interest along the route, food recommendations and accommodation options. Downloadable GPX files of each route are also available. This new guidebook is a pleasure to read, and it will have you longing for your next escape into the Welsh countryside.

For a small country, Wales has a lot to offer the off-road cyclist – with a huge variety of trails to explore. From the amazing terrain of the Elan Valley to the ridge-lines of the Brecon Beacon; from the coastal paths of the Gower Peninsula to the Trans Cambrian Way; you can even venture into the highlands of Snowdonia and complete a tour around (and over) the peak of Snowdon. There is something for everyone, and everything you could hope for in such a compact nation.

As well as mapping out the best possible bikepacking routes in Wales, Emma also provides insights into historic landmarks, prehistoric monuments, and the rich history of Welsh culture. You will be inspired to sample local cuisine, find the local pub, learn how to wild camp responsibly, and ensure you are properly prepared for your next Welsh cycling adventure.

This book is an invaluable resource. Get out there and explore the beautiful Welsh countryside.
