A Lake District Grand Tour by Mike CardenThe Lake District in Books: “My review copy this week caused me a degree of sleep-deprivation, but I’m not complaining; definitely un-put-downable.”

Amazon (including Kindle version):

***** “really enjoyed this read.following this book I bought other two books by Mike and just love his way of getting his love of cycling on paper.I have been to some of the places in this book but still missed lots of things that Mike saw.It just makes you want to go back with fresh eyes.”

***** “Enjoying the read, will visit all places accessible by car as soon as the weather improves, would love to cycle but mobility is not good.”

***** “If you are not a cyclist and are not visiting the Lake Distrct (why not?), you will still enjoy this book for the easy, unassuming style in which it is written, the descriptions of the places and the journey.”

***** “An excellent read.”
