Clare Balding sets out on a two-wheel odyssey to re-discover Britain – from the saddle of a touring cycle.
Clare follows the wheeltracks of compulsive cyclist and author Harold Briercliffe whose evocative guide books of the late 1940s lovingly describe by-passed Britain - a world of unspoiled villages, Cycle Touring clubs and sunny B-Roads…
Carrying a set of Harold’s Cycling Touring Guides for company – and riding his very own bicycle – Clare embarks on six iconic cycle rides to try and find the world he described. If it’s still there.
