David Mitchell published a book of Bike rides in Harrogate and Nidderdale in 2020. And he has just completed and published his second book of rides –  Bike Rides In and Around York.

The books are hugely interesting with rides, historical facts, narrative, wildlife pictures and photographs. They are a great read and useful to try some new rides or add to your existing ride.

David writes the Hedgehog Cycling Blog and hosts and writes the Harrogate and District Cycling Action website. Together with John Rowe, Wheel Easy member and Resurrection Bikes they are drawing up detailed plans to improve the local cycle network often with minor improvements to what already exists.

Do order the books directly through Hedgehog books rather than a large internet company – they are well worth supporting & buying from him is cheaper too.
