Roughstuff Cycling in the Alps

This book was compiled by Fred Wright from accounts by numerous cyclists as well as his own extensive experiences. It covers nearly 300 routes, ranging from easy unsurfaced roads at little more than 1000m to steep footpaths above 3000m. All Alpine areas from the southern French Alps to the Dolomites and Austrian Tyrol are included. There is a sketch map for each of the sixteen sections, plus colour photographs and an index. Some of the routes included are on our site and there was a review in OCD Cycloclimbing magazine No. 97 (Winter 2002).

It is available to Members and non-members alike from Fred at 68 Alfred Road, Ashford, Kent, TN24 0PH for £10 including UK postage. Payment should be by cheque payable to "OCD Cycloclimbing".
