If ever a country was made to be seen by bicycle, it's England. Miles of country by-ways too small for through traffic reveal new scenery, accents, and attitudes toward life at almost every bend in the road. For those seeking the ultimate British cycling experience, England By Bike covers some of the best off-the-beaten-path travel in this charming country.

Written by a native Briton, this guide presents various routes of 25 to 60 miles in length, which can be done as day trips or linked into longer tours. Detailed itineraries reach into all corners of England, from Alnwick near Scotland's border to the Lake District to the Isle of Wight. There's access information (by train or car) and plenty of pre-trip essentials, such as getting to England, dealing with customs, finding accommodations, unusual road habits, geography, and more. Helpful maps and photos complete this quintessential guide to cycling the back roads of England.
