A road cycle map that is easy to use for planning but also ideal for taking out on a ride, whether it's a back up for a GPS device or for navigation in its own right.

One of the main features of this map is how easy it is to see the climbs (likewise the descents) . Climbs above 3% gradient and over 100 meteres of ascent are marked on the map, with a start and finish point. Key data of length, average gradient, and amount of ascent are shown next to each climb. The climbs have a ranking number based on the amount of ascent to aid comparisons.

Roads are classified by size and a symbol is used for roads that are in disrepair. Distance markers are shown between key junctions, contours are every 100m with layered colouring, spot heights are shown along the roads.

Eleven suggested routes are included and also a table of the climbs to aid referencing.

The map should be essential to any new cyclists to the area but also those that have visited before to help plan new rides and discover many climbs not been previously conquered.

If you are using GPS then besides the map being a great backup it is also useful for taking out on cafe stops to see what you have left to do, and for showing family and friends your route when you are back and why you may be a little tired!
