Escape Routes will be published on May 3

Author Matt Carroll has brought together his favourite 60 rides across England in his latest book, Escape Routes, due to hit the shelves on May 3.

Inspiring riders to ditch the car and get pedalling, the guide, priced £16.95, is split into categories ranging from 'jaw-dropping views' to 'taste tour' and 'best for pubs' to 'magical history tour'.

Each route is carefully described, with hand-drawn maps and step-by-step directions, with sightseeing options also listed.
