Publisher's Summary

What’s it really like to cycle King Alfred’s Way? Is it a piece of cake or rather harder than that?

Julia Goodfellow-Smith was a non-cyclist just six weeks before she and her mountain biking friend, Alison, set off on this epic 350 km route around Southern England. Follow Julia’s sometimes bumpy journey from a cycling novice to riding King Alfred’s Way itself.

In Cycling King Alfred’s Way: A Piece of Cake?, you’ll discover what each section of the route is like to cycle, as well as strategies to:

  • Plan your adventure.
  • Make cycling more comfortable.
  • Reach the top of hills without stopping or pushing.
  • Carry on when things get tough.
  • Stay healthy.

Whether you’re an experienced cycle tourer or rookie like Julia, learn from her mistakes—and her successes—to make your next bikepacking adventure the best possible success.
