Clare Balding powers her pedals on a two-wheel odyssey around Britain. There is something wonderfully liberating about travelling around the country on a bike, covering the miles exposed to the elements: the wind, the rain, the sunshine... In this six-part series Clare Balding sets out on a two-wheel odyssey to re-discover Britain from the saddle of a touring cycle. She follows the wheel tracks of passionate cyclist and author Harold Briercliffe whose evocative guide books of the late 1940s, snapped up by legions of holidaymakers, lovingly describe a Britain of a bygone era - a world of unspoiled villages, cycle touring clubs and sunny B roads! Carrying a set of Harolds 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. As she tours the country, region by region, she discovers its not always picture-postcard perfect...
