Each of the fifty locations has a full page photo and two pages of text. The text has been written by bike tour operators and/or guides. They provide a bare bones route description. The editor-in-chief concludes each entry with a standard list with brief information on how to get there, where to stay, and the duration. The level of difficulty of some routes may be underrated because of the fitness of the writers.
